Geraldine Mae Pladsen Agnes was born on April 18, 1939 in Gully, Minnesota to parents Leonard and Barbara Schneider Pladsen. She grew up north of Gully and graduated from Gonvick High School in 1957.

Geraldine was united in marriage to Vincent Agnes on August 31, 1957. Together they had seven children that they raised on Geraldine’s home place. Geraldine helped with farming, as well as working at Northern Pride in Thief River Falls, Minnesota for 18 years. After retirement, she worked at Peatland Reds and North Star Enterprises.

Geraldine had many things that she was passionate about. She baked, gardened, crocheted, cooked, made lefse, and had the best donuts. She loved polka music and even played the accordion in a band in her younger years. She had numerous trophies from her champion bowling days. The thing she loved most though, was her family and her pets. She was most known as being everbody’s “ma”.
