Vincenza Jane Riggio Agati

August 27, 1921 — January 17, 2024

Vincenza Jane Riggio Agati

Vincenza Jane Riggio Agati passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home in Marietta, GA the afternoon of January 17, 2024 at the young age of 102 and a half. Born on August 27, 1921 in Berwick, PA, and raised in Franklin, NJ, 

 

She met the love of her life, retired Army Captain Nicholas Agati, after a friend suggested he escort her home from a party they had both attended in Greenwich Village. Some would say it was romance at first sight and they married on a snowy day in Franklin on January 28, 1956. 


Jane believed wholeheartedly in being an active participant in her community and if someone needed help, you should be there to do so. Her other passions included tending to her garden, which was extravagant, walking extensive distances (at one point in her mid-seventies she was the oldest woman to complete the three-day, sixty-mile Susan G. Komen Walk for Breast Cancer Awareness), golfing, and tap dancing. Most were lucky to have witnessed her famous Ole Soft Shoe routine more than once.


Beyond her being a dedicated friend, she valued La Famiglia above all else, doting on her two sons, two granddaughters, and a lengthy list of nieces and nephews. She loved nothing more than to celebrate each of their accomplishments, no matter how small, and enjoyed every chance she had to return to her home state of New Jersey to be in the company of her kin, especially on Culver Lake. She was thrilled to finally welcome her first great-grandchild, Atticus, in April of 2023, with whom she was able to spend her last birthday, Thanksgiving, and Christmas spoiling with love. 

 

Jane is preceded in death by her husband of 56 years Nicholas Agati, her parents, her seven siblings (Louis, Filomena, Anthony, Raffaella, Paulina, George and Lawrence) and their spouses. She is survived by her sons Martin (Nancy) and Stephen Agati, her granddaughters, Abigail Agati-Abbott (Michael) and Catherine Agati, her great-grandson Atticus Abbott, and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and great-great nieces and nephews. 

 

A celebration of life will be held 12:00 pm Saturday, June 15, 2024, at the Atlanta Country Club, 500 Atlanta Country Club Dr, Marietta, GA 30067. The family selected Ingram Funeral Home & Crematory, 210 Ingram Avenue, Cumming, GA to handle the arrangements. 770-887-2388
