Agnes Bonafiglia

December 9, 1928 — December 22, 2020

Agnes (Faiola) Bonafiglia, "Aggie", age 92, passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, December 22, 2020, surrounded by her loving husband of seventy years, Angelo and other close family members. Agnes was born in Seneca Falls on December 9, 1928 to parents, Sylvester and Caroline (Lippa) Faiola. She attended Mynderse Academy and was married to Angelo Bonafiglia in 1950. She was fortunate enough to have grown up and settled in Seneca Falls with her four sisters, Assunta Turri (Gigi), Rose Faiola, Mary Southerland, Phyllis Winters (Wally), and her six brothers, Kenny (Audrey), Michael (Mirella), Benny (Anne), Louie (Mary Lynne), Anthony (Dee) and Sylvester (Elisa). Predeceased by her sisters, Assunta, Rose and Mary, and brothers, Kenny, Michael, Benny and Anthony, as well as sisters-in-law, Diane Faiola and Jessie Faiola. Aggie raised her own family in the same homestead where she and her siblings grew up. She is survived by her children, Andrea, Bruce (Lisa) and Curtis (Stuart) and special daughter-in-law Diane Bonafiglia. She was also a beloved "Baboo" to five grandchildren, Daniele (Philipp) Wirth, Erin Bonafiglia (John Hurlburt) and Francis Benjamin Bonafiglia as well as to four great-grandchildren Gabriella, Harrison, Indiana and Joviana. Aggie was also an endeared aunt to numerous nieces and nephews.

The neighborhood in which Aggie was raised and in turn, raised her own children, provided her with great joy throughout her life. She enjoyed spending time chatting with her good friends on their front porches or in their backyard screen houses.

She spent 20 years as an aide at Willard Psychiatric Center. She cared deeply for the residents and was known to bring residents home with her on weekends to provide them with a much needed sense of family.
Family was an incredibly important part of Aggie's life. She enjoyed spending time with her family, loved to cook and especially enjoyed hosting the Faiola Frolicker parties and Sunday dinners.

Throughout her life, Aggie was a devoted member of the St. Patrick's Church and also enjoyed being a part of the SMS Auxiliary, the Red Hat Society and the many friendships that were forged from those groups.
She was admired for her strength, compassion, sense of humor and wit, which will be deeply missed by her family and many friends.

A special thank you to the wonderful caregivers who provided invaluable care to Aggie, which allowed her to remain comfortable and with family and friends in her own home.

A private family memorial was held at St. Patrick's Church, with a Celebration of Life to be held for family and friends in the summer. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to The Happiness House of Geneva and The Alzheimer's Association, Finger Lakes Chapter.
