Obituary for Agatha Douglas

November 20, 1927 - July 5, 2017

Agatha Pitz Douglas, 89, of Aurora, was called home to heaven, July 5, 2017 to be with our Savior. She was born November 20, 1927, in Juniata, Nebraska, the daughter of the late John and Christina Pitz.

At 4 ft 8 inches this humble woman was the rock and strength of her family. She had a generous spirit and was a mighty prayer warrior for anyone in need. With grace and joy she shared all that she had to give, but most importantly, the good news of Christ's love and mercy. She will be remembered for her abiding faith in all of God's promises, her kindness, her wisdom and her special prayers on every family holiday. And last but not least, her unmatched baking skills she loved to share with everyone.
