Agnes M. Shofner

Agnes Mary Shofner, 86, resident of Brainerd, passed away from complications of liver disease on Friday, October 19, 2018 at her home.

Agnes was born on March 9, 1932, in Silver Lake, MN to Joseph and Aloise (Dvorak) Wosmek. She married Lloyd Shofner. Agnes will be remembered for her love of cats, for giving the best hugs, as an avid mystery reader and for always sending her grandchildren off with chocolate from her stash. Known for her "sassitude," Agnes entertained those around her with her strong opinions and life advice. The last piece of advice she offered her family was to be good, but not that good.

Agnes is survived by her children: David (Julie) Shofner, Gary Shofner, and Theresa Shofner; two grandchildren: Amanda and Cameron; and her cat, Tommer.

Agnes was preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd; her parents; her brothers: Joseph, Rudy, Emil and William Wosmek; and her sisters: Ann Taylor and Clara Trea.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 at Nelson-Doran Funeral Home in Brainerd. Visitation will be one hour prior to services. Burial will be in Evergreen Memorial Gardens.

Arrangements are with Nelson-Doran Funeral Home.
