On April 3, 1948, Agnes married her beloved husband, Albert Richard Cline, Sr. in Washington, D.C. Together they celebrated over 41 wonderful years of marriage before his passing in 1989.
She was employed with over 30 years of dedicated service as an administrative specialist with the Department of Agriculture, Farmer's Home Administration in Leonardtown, Md.
She was an avid reader, enjoyed bird watching and loved her pet beagle, Scooter. She was a long time blood donor with the American Red Cross, something she was very passionate about. In retirement she learned conversational Japanese and Spanish, and took oil painting classes. She painted many beautiful landscapes and still life subjects and won a Grand Champion at the St. Mary's County Fair. Spending time with her family, especially her children and grandchildren was her greatest love.
