Agnes Koltze Fonteyn

Agnes Bernice Fonteyn was born on March 16, 1919, in Minneota, to Henry and Anna (Richter) Koltze. She grew up and attended school in Minneota. On May 1, 1939, she was united in marriage to Leo Fonteyn. The couple farmed and raised their family south of Minneota. Agnes worked as a Nurse’s Aide at the Minneota Manor until 1987 when her husband became ill. She enjoyed embroidery, playing bingo and playing cards at the Senior Center. Her faith and her family were most important to her. She will be remembered for her pleasant demeanor and constant smile. Agnes died on Thursday, December 15, 2016, at the Minneota Manor in Minneota. She is survived by her children Paul (and Sis) Fonteyn of Minneota, LeRoy (and Diane) Fonteyn of St. Paul Park, David (and Stella) Fonteyn of Staples, Karen (and Dale) Swedzinski of Taunton, Larry (and Sue) Fonteyn of Buffalo, 14 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.

I am sorry to hear of the loss of Agnes. I worked with her at the Minneota Manor while I was in high school. She was a very special lady. My sympathy to the family.

I am so sorry to hear of the sudden loss of a very special lady! I enjoyed getting to know her, especially on the days we walked to dinner, which was almost on a daily basis and boy did she share stories. Her smile was contagious, and so was her laugh. I still can see her face. I will MISS Agnes dearly! Agnes' family, you're in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for sharing her with us, she was like a 2nd grandma to me.
