Agnes Moroose

October 18, 1919 - February 27, 2019

Agnes Moroose Agnes Moroose, 99, died in Martinsburg, West Virginia at her daughter's home on Wednesday, February 27, 2019. Agnes, the daughter of Joseph and Celeste Moffa, was born in Fairmont on October 18, 1919.

She enjoyed making birthday cakes for family, cooking Italian dinners, socializing daily with her friends at McDonalds, and most of all spending time with her children and grandchildren. "Aggie" and her husband, Jimmy, enjoyed frequent trips to the Charlestown Racetrack, Atlantic City, and has visited Las Vegas 13 times.

Agnes worked at the Fairmont Theater for 25 years and was well known and recognized as the "popcorn and candy lady."

She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Celeste Moffa, husband James V. Moroose, and her brother Anthony Moffa.
Those left behind to cherish Agnes' memory include her children; James V. Moroose II, Donald A. Moroose (Lynda), Celeste K. Moroose, her grandchildren: Steve Moroose (Tina) and Andrea Johnson-Delaportas (Dino)
The family will celebrate the life of Agnes at a private memorial led by Fr. Joseph Konikattil and Deacon David Lester of St. Peters the Fisherman Catholic Church.

The family would like to give special thanks to her caregiver in Fairmont, Ginger Harbert, as well as Dorothy Lefevre, from St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Martinsburg, who administered Communion to Agnes each Sunday for the past three years.

The legacy of Agnes and the love we have for her will forever be cherished. We have nothing but great memories of her.

"Mom, you have given so much and asked for so little in return. Thank you for always being there for us." We could not have asked for a better Mom or Grandma...She was the BEST!

Arrangements are under the care of Ross Funeral Home 801 Fairmont Avenue Fairmont.

Agnes was a special lady! It was my pleasure to take communion to her! I was happy to have met her children. It was very evident that they loved their Mother dearly.

Oh, how I remember Agnes. She always had candy and popcorn ready for my kids, as their Granddad was John Harless who also worked at Fairmont theatre. I think the kids were more anxious to see Agnes than going up to the booth to see their Granddad. She was such a sweet person and I am so sorry for your family. Prayers to all of you.

It's with a heavy heart that I send this message. Agnes was always so kind to me as I grew up and visited her home on Spence street as a youngster to play with Don who was and still is my best friend and the brother I never had. I have so many good memories of Agnes through the years from my childhood to grandpa Moffa sharing his wine with me. I am sure Agnes is with Jimmy now and they will be eternally happy with our lord. May God bless the Moroose family. I love you all

Your mother will truly be missed and her laughter and smile will always come to mind when I think of her. She was a blessing in this lifetime and will keep the angels in heaven busy until you all join her.
