Agnes L. Boyle
Agnes L. Boyle, 92, of Macungie, died peacefully July 2, 2021, in hospice care. She was married to William Boyle from 1950 to 1989. She was the daughter of the late August and Esther Hower, of Coplay.
She was a graduate of Allentown Central Catholic High School and Sacred Heart School of Nursing.
She was a registered nurse for the former Allentown Osteopathic Hospital for 25 years while raising seven children.
Nearing retirement, she became an avid painter and began taking her art more seriously, studying with several area artists, creating expressive abstracts in acrylic and watercolor. She was a member of the Parkland Art League and Lehigh Art Alliance, exhibiting and winning awards in various juried shows.
Until recently, she was a busy woman - ballroom dancing, tennis, pickle ball and spending time with friends. Always surrounded by her close family, she was happiest being involved in their lives and activities.
She is survived by daughters, Mary Lou and her husband, James Fiske, of Orefield; Kathleen DeLucia, of Catasauqua; Jane and her husband, Tom Hallman, of Macungie; Maureen and her husband, Richard Burger, of Northampton; Chris Tise, of Annapolis, Md.; a son Tom, of Bonsall, Calif.; 15 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by a daughter, Terry.
