“My greatest joy in life was my husband, my children, and my dearest friends.”
Entered into Eternal Life on Tuesday, June 22, 2021. Agnes was born 85 years ago in her parents’ home on the corner of Cleveland Avenue and 92nd Street in what was the Township of Greenfield. She is preceded in death by her father Clarence Bohmann, her mother Hildegard Bohmann, brothers John and Joe, and a sister Sr. Johnella, RSM.
Agnes is survived by her husband Wayne, daughter Mary Schley (Steve Mick), sons Mark Schley (Jill), John Schley (Maryann), Peter Clark, Grant Clark (Charlene Covey), Kent Clark, Bryan Clark (Jill), other daughters-in-law Kathy Clark and Danielle Preston, 10 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.
She is further survived by her sister Barbara Adsit; brothers Daniel Bohmann (Judie), Thomas Bohmann (Toni), and Gerald Bohmann; sister-in-law Annabel Clark; brothers-in-law Kirk Clark (Cookie) and Hewitt ‘Rusty’ Clark (Becky); and cousins Margaret Rose and Richard Thielen.
As a wife, a mom, a friend, and a care giver to anyone who needed it, Agnes cherished lifelong friendships with so many wonderful people. She felt blessed for all that she was given and was thankful to each and all. Agnes enjoyed her home, garden, yard, travel, hosting parties, and spending time with family and friends.
Her faith was indomitable and she loved God. She sought quiet solitude to reflect and pray in her daily life and worked to bring love and compassion to those around her. An intellectual, she loved learning, debate, and experiencing new things in life. She had an opportunity to attend Mount Mary College on scholarship and instead chose to dedicate herself to having and raising a family. An avid reader and thoughtful observer of the world around her, Agnes navigated the joys and sorrows of life with faith and compassion.
Agnes spent her entire life in the southwest corner of Milwaukee with the exception of 3 years in Independence, MO in the mid 70’s. No matter where she was she worked to make connections with people. Agnes made it to 5 continents and many countries but her favorite place to be was near her family and friends.
