AGOTA "Agi" SZABO BARDOS, 68, of Germantown, passed away January 20 peacefully in her home with loving family at her side. She was an active parishioner at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Germantown. Agi was an enthusiastic member of the choir, prayer groups, the Secular Franciscan Order, and was recently inducted into the Equestrian Order, an honorary organization for lay Catholics. Agi shared the joy of her faith with everyone she met. Agi lived an extraordinary life. She and Denes, her high school sweetheart, escaped from Hungary after the 1956 revolution and were married in Austria. Upon arriving in the U.S., she obtained a scholarship to study at the University of Illinois. Shortly thereafter, she chose to give up her studies to care for her growing family.
