Obituary for Agnes F. Lake

Peoria- Agnes F. Lake, age 95, formerly of Decatur, IL., passed away Tuesday, December 26, 2017 at OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, IL.

Agnes was born February 26, 1922, in Decatur, IL., a daughter of Frank J. and Ella (Clements) Yunker. She married her adoring husband of 46 years, in 1942, shortly before he was deployed to serve overseas in WWII. They raised two loving daughters both of whom inherited their mother’s love of music.

This beautiful woman was a brilliant, gifted pianist, spreading joy and delight wherever people gathered to hear her play for over 90 years.  

Always thinking of others, a true philanthropist, and generous to a fault, a woman of her generation, born into the great depression, a young wife and mother through WWII, she carried herself with great dignity and pride. 

In her senior years, as a widow, she remained in her Decatur home, continuing to spend time enjoying family and friends and her volunteer work. She then came to Peoria in 2012, and lived in her apartment at Liberty Estates, where she continued to bless everyone with her music into her 90s. 

Survivors include two daughters; Patti (Doug) Morris of Peoria and Kathie (Gerard) Bernard of Sorrento, FL, and one brother, Frank (Hedi) Yunker, Jr. of Lincoln, IL., 8 grandchildren and 12 great-greatgrandchildren.

Agnes was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, one brother, two sisters, and one great-granddaughter, Stephanie Morris.

Funeral Mass will be 10:30 AM, Saturday, December 30, 2017 at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, with a one hour prior visitation. Fr. James Pallardy will officiate. Burial will be at Graceland Fairlawn Cemetery at a later date.

Memorials may be made to St. Jude Midwest Affiliate.
