January 20, 1927 - November 16, 2021
Agnes Margaret Roberts DeHart left this earth peacefully, surrounded by loved ones on November 16, 2021 in Franklin, NC. She was born in Jeddo, PA, in 1927 to Verna May Keller and Benjamin Albert Roberts. She attended Temple University earning a nursing degree in 1947, commissioned to the U.S. Navy for five years and was awarded U.N. and Korean Ribbons. As an R.N., she worked in military hospitals and a variety of medical settings. In 1952, she married Turner DeHart of Franklin, NC, whom she met in Okinawa, Japan. They shared a joyful marriage for 63 years in Bethesda, MD and Franklin, NC. As a devoted, very loving mother and wife, she cared for and supported the family as they traveled and lived far and wide, including Turkey, Canada, Hawaii, and Washington, DC. Agnes served her community and church wherever she was, including singing in the choir, Lay Reader, Chalicist, Vestrywoman, Sunday School teacher, and Daughters of the King. A woman of many talents, she was a painter, artist, seamstress and enthusiastic pinochle and bridge player. She enjoyed a multitude of volunteer activities all her life: PTA, Girl Scouts, Guardian Ad Litem, Hospice, community choirs Mountain Voices and Carolines. An amazing lady of 94, she even did tai chi in the park! She was a faithful and active member at St John's Episcopal Church, Chevy Chase, MD, Church of the Incarnation, Highlands, St John's Cartoogachaye and All Saints Episcopal Community Church in Franklin, NC. She will be terribly missed by many as a beautifully gracious woman of deep faith, compassion, warmth, friendliness and respect for all. She is survived by daughters, Margaret Uhar (Robert), Mary Bennett, Martha DeHart, grandchildren: Milton Bennett, Kellar Mackoviak, Ian Uhar (Michelle), Aidan Acarya Uhar, and Emily Uhar (Scott), and three great grandchildren: Everett and Grace Uhar and David Erich and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by sisters Caroline King and Ruth James, brother Benjamin Albert, son David DeHart and husband Turner DeHart. Her spirit will live on and she will continue to be an inspiration to all of us. A Celebration of Life Memorial Service is planned for January 15, 2022, 11 A.M. at St. Agnes Episcopal Church, Franklin, NC 28734. At this time, masks are required.
