Mrs. Agnes Greene (née Whelan) passed peacefully away in the presence of her loving family on January 19, 2018, aged 88 years. Aggie was predeceased by her husband Rupert Greene, her parents Captain John and Marcella Whelan, and her brothers Dr. Patrick Whelan and Fr. John Whelan, S.J.
Leaving to mourn Aggie are her loving family: daughter Marcy (David Feder) and son Gerry (Marilyn); grandchildren Gerard (Laura) and Paddy (Alexa); siblings Mary (Carmen Rockwell, deceased), George Whelan (Gloria), Dr. Ron Whelan (Betty Lou) and sister-in-law Marie Whelan. Aggie had a great many nieces, nephews and cousins who will always remember her laughter and delight in life.
Aggie was kind and generous in her well-lived life. She cherished her 70-year friendship with her club and bridge ladies and the fellowship of her special neighbors on Shea Street. She was a woman of grace, generosity and deep faith who volunteered with St. Patrick’s Mercy Home, St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital and the Palliative Care Unit. She was devoted to the Darjeeling Mission in India, which her brother administered as a Jesuit priest. All who knew Aggie loved her deeply for her kind spirit as well as her love of music and parties; we will treasure our many happy memories of her.
