Agnes Palumbo Obituary

Agnes Mary Palumbo (nee Grogan) died peacefully in her sleep on Friday, June 23, 2023, at the age of 99, just shy of her 100th birthday. She will be remembered as a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother and for her intelligence, her faith, her humor, and her commitment to her family and to her community. Agnes was born on August 19, 1923, to loving parents Francis and Mary Grogan (nee Begg), in Tuckahoe, NY, the oldest child of the Grogan clan. She was preceded in death by her devoted husband of 61 years Philip Joseph Palumbo, her grandchildren Emily Smythe and Casey Seaboldt, four of her five siblings, Jack, Frank, Mary, and Joseph Grogan. She was also predeceased by her daughter-in-law Amy Palumbo (Rabinowitz), her brothers-in-law Frank, Anthony (Tony), and Thomas Palumbo, John Golia, her sisters- in-law Lucy Palumbo, Veronica Grogan and Kathleen Grogan, and her nephews Patrick and Neil Grogan. Agnes is survived by her sister Catherine Golia, her twelve children, Philip, John (Micaela), Thomas (Audrey), Catherine Smythe (Windell), Joseph (Ginger Smith), Mary Seaboldt (John), Margaret (Edward Dinnen), Christine Turnbull (Wayne), Lisa (David Sanchez), Francis (Susan Moore), Michael, Matthew (Ann Marie); her twelve grandchildren Andrew (Amanda), Evan (Emily), Taylor (Alison McDonough), Ian Seaboldt (Courtney Carabello), Mariah Seaboldt (Ian Jutras), Jonathan Smythe (Laura), Sean Smythe (Silvia), Colin, Peter (McKenzie), Camil Sanchez-Palumbo, Diriangen Sanchez-Palumbo, and Sandino Sanchez-Palumbo; and five great grandchildren Buddy, Polly, Pearl, Bradley, and James (JJ). She was also a beloved aunt to many nieces and nephews. In 1941 she graduated as valedictorian from her high school and then attended the College of New Rochelle. During WWII (early 1940s) she was recruited to be trained as a draftsperson in the engineering program at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. After her training she worked in Buffalo, NY for a firm designing the latest planes for the war effort. Moving back home to Westchester, she was employed by Norden Aircraft where she met her husband Philip (Phil) whom she married in 1950. Agnes and Phil moved to Mt. Kisco, NY in 1952 where they raised their family and where they both lived for the rest of their lives fully entrenched in the community. Agnes reentered the work force in the late 1960s by taking a part time job at a local nursery school. She returned to her technical roots when she took a full-time job as a draftsperson at Chas. H Sells Inc. She worked there for fifteen years until her retirement in the late 1980s. Agnes faith was strong, and she was a longtime member of the St. Francis of Assisi parish and was one of the first women to become a lay Eucharistic Minister. She truly practiced her faith, sharing love with family, friends, and community. Agnes loved her family and loved nothing more than being together with everyone. She was a great listener and always loved hearing whatever was going on in her childrens lives. She was happiest for her children at the best of times and heralded their successes, but also was their biggest supporter during their difficult times. She had a mind like a steel trap and would often remember specific events in her childrens lives better than they did. Factual recall, quick wit, and the ability to see life with humor and compassion were just a few of her many attributes. Her family knows their good fortune to have Agnes in their lives for so long. She was love and kindness personified and as one would expect from an Irish mother of twelve, she was tough when she needed to be. It is the familys hope that all who knew her enjoyed her part in their lives and know that she is now at peace and will always be remembered.
