On November 8, 2019, Agnieszka Janis, wife of Zbig Janis and mother of Victoria Janis, passed away at the age of 50. She was born in Kolo, Poland of Maria and Michal Kapusta on November 24, 1968. She graduated from Mikolaj Kopernik University at Torun, Poland in 1999 and then graduated from SUNY Delhi in 2009.
Agnes, as she was known by many, spent many years playing tennis in the Catskill Cup and also spent all her free time skiing during the winter, mostly at Belleayre Mt. and occasionally at Plattekill. With her two friends, she hiked dense forests foraging for mushrooms that she later cooked down into marvelous foods. She was naturally a woods-woman and this area brought her joy and peace. Agnieszka had a difficult time adjusting to her new home for the next 20 years as it was very foreign to her. As time went on, she had a family, made several great friends, and began to love the life she had chosen for herself. You will be dearly missed by all Agnes.
A funeral Mass will be celebrated by the Rev. Gregory Weider at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16 at Sacred Heart Church, Margaretville, NY. Committal prayers will be held at a later date at Clovesville Cemetery, Fleischmanns, NY. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the Hynes Funeral Home, Margaretville, NY
