Agnes Sarah Walsh followed her dream for adventure and nursing by taking a nursing job at Providence Hospital in 1946, moving her from California to Alaska. In 1947, she married the love of her life, Daniel K. Walsh, of Nome, Alaska, where they raised nine children and she worked as a public health nurse. Agnes was member of the Pioneers of Alaska Igloo #1, Beta Sigma Phi, the Nome ladies coffee group and the Altar Society. She loved July 4th family gatherings at Big Lake and Horseshoe Lake and camping at Byers Lake. She was instrumental in securing the property for the Girl Scout Camp Dexter, north of Nome. Agnes had a special appreciation for and pursued life-long learning. She did not waiver when she lost her vision to macular degeneration in 2003. She relied on caregivers as her eyes, and books on tape from the Talking Books Center. She loved travel and went to many of the "Lower 48" states, Europe and the Canadian provinces. She embraced life; looking forward and never back. She was preceded in death by her husband, Dan; granddaughter, Kiana Dyen; her brother, Dr. Robert Morelli; and nephew, Bobby Morelli. She is survived by her nine children and their spouses, Catherine, Teresa, Robert, Joan, John, Rosemary, Sharon, Patrick and Monica.
