Agnes Thomas

Word has been received that Agnes F. Thomas of Teaticket, a longtime familiar face at the Falmouth School Administration Building, died on March 21. She was 78.

She was born in New Bedford, the daughter of Arthur and Mary (Amaral) Thomas.

Ms. Thomas, who was known as Aggy, retired after a more than 30-year career with the Falmouth Public Schools. She greeted the many visitors to the School Administration Building with a warm smile and friendly demeanor while answering their questions and dispensing forms and other information.

She had previously worked at Wright Oil and also at Grants, the five-and-dime store of the W.T. Grant Company that was once on Main Street and a competitor to Woolworth’s.

A staunch Boston sports fan, her true love was for the Red Sox: Ms. Thomas could name the starting lineup from the Impossible Dream Team of 1967.

She leaves a sister, Palmeida Cairns of New Bedford; a brother, Arthur F. Thomas of Teaticket; her nieces and nephews, Michelle, Warren, AJ and Paige Andrews, Mary Torres, Cheryl Grundy, Allison Thomas, Erin and Ben Sloan, and Ted Nixon; and other extended family.

She was predeceased by her sister Madeline Baker and her niece Michelle Thomas.

A graveside service was held on Wednesday, June 24, at St. Anthony’s Cemetery in East Falmouth.
