Delanson - Agnes Theresa Karas Culbert, 85, passed away on Monday, September 13, 2021 at The Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing in Guilderland.
Agnes was born in Jamaica, Queens to the late Joseph and Rose Buchwald Karas. At the age of 10, she moved to Richmondville, NY where she graduated from the former Richmondville Central School. She married her high school sweetheart, Donald on May 18, 1957. They have four wonderful children, Tom, Dan and Theresa (Walter) Arnold and Joe (Regina). The joy of her life are her nine grandchildren, David Culbert, Meagan Culbert, Jon Culbert, Emily Culbert, Mike Culbert, Steve Culbert and Erica Culbert and Willy and Jenny Arnold. She is also survived by her most special nephew, Joseph C. Karas and sister in law Merlyn. Also, her brother Robert (Laura) from New Britain, CT and other nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her sister Jean Whittaker and her special brother Joseph V. Karas.
Agnes retired from the Duanesburg Central School District where she was employed as a Paraprofessional working in the reading program. She loved life and enjoyed being with her family and many friends. She also liked to travel and so enjoyed getting in their camper and going all over these United States with her husband Don, and at times family members. Life was good. Smile when you think of her.
She loved children and would like everyone, who so desires, to donate to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at stjude.org, or the Michael J. Fox Parkinson’s Disease Foundation at michaeljfox.org.
