Dorothy Mariane Agin, Age :100
Dec 29,1919---Nov 15,2020

Dorothy Mariane Agin, 100, formerly of Kansas City, KS passed peacefully November 15 at The Forum at Knightsbridge, Columbus, OH. Dorothy was born December 29, 1919 in Mercier, KS, grew up in Salina, KS and was a resident of Kansas City for most of her adult life before moving to Columbus, OH eleven years ago. Dorothy was preceded in death by husband Gerald, parents Mathias and Emma Weber and eight siblings.

Family has always been the focus of Dorothy’s life, and she worked in clerical positions to help raise and educate their three children. Her passion for sewing lovely dresses, play clothes and items for our home was patiently passed on to her daughters. She is survived by Janice Burgess (Don) of Toronto, ON, Ronald Agin (Sue Ellen) of Melbourne Beach, FL, and Colleen Dixon (Ron) of Westerville, OH, seven grandchildren,and fourteen great-grandchildren. We are grateful to have had such a wonderful, loving mother all these years, and it was a joy to our family to gather in celebration of her 100th birthday.

A private family service November 23 will be followed by interment at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens. Memorial contributions may be made to the charity of your choice.

It is with our deepest and heartfelt sympathies that I send our condolences on behalf of all of the staff and residents' at The Forum. Of course you know how much we loved your mom. She has been an inspiration to so many of us with her positive presence- always a kind word to others and someone who provided encouragement even when she was having difficulty herself. It has been an honor and a privilege to care for your mom and we will miss her- and you Colleen! Blessings and peace to all, Becky Converse

Janice, I remember you so well from Wyandotte. You have to best smile and you were always so friendly to all of us. I am sorry for your loss, but how wonderful that you had your mom for 100 years. She was able to know and enjoy her grandchildren, and even great grandchildren, which is a true blessing. Please know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Stay well in this crazy time. Linda (Rively) Knox

Dorothy was one of the most special people I met at The Forum. We talked of many things, as we rode the exercise bikes there. Before my husband died, he enjoyed Dorothy, too, as he walked on the treadmill. Her encouragement and attitude gave much to me. I will never forget Dorothy.

Ron, Colleen, and Janice--I was so sorry to see the obituary in the paper Wednesday. I actually thought about her before I read the paper. She was always a special mom to me. Your dad always called me "Henry Aldrich" who, I believe was a character in an old radio show. Your mom always thought that was funny. I never have figured out if that was a complement or an insult! She was just a very sweet lady to me. I will try to come to the burial service at Chapel Hill on Monday--I hope you won't mind.

It was our honor to get to know Dorothy when she moved from Kansas to Columbus. Her daughter, Colleen, and her son-in-law, Ron, are dear friends. All of us would be lucky to be like Dorothy as we age. She was so lovely and positive in everything she did. We were at her 100th birthday party, and she was surrounded by her entire family. We will remember her as she was that day—joyful and happy. She made our world a better place.

Dorothy was a beautiful friend, devoted and loving. God rest her soul. Over the past 12 months Mother has missed Dorothy, and their meals together, and their walks “back home.” God bless all Dorothy’s family and friends as they celebrate this Thanksgiving and a particularly holy Advent and Christmas. With love and prayers, Patrick and Mary Ann
