Obituary for Agnes Irene Wolf

Agnes Irene Wolf (nee Heidenreich) passed on to her Eternal Reward surrounded by the Love of her Lord and Family on December 15, 2021, at Edenbrook of Oshkosh. Agnes was welcomed into this world by her parents Frank Martin and Mildred Marie Heidenreich (nee Stekel) on May 21, 1937. She was born on the family farm in Vernon County near Yuba, Wisconsin. Agnes received her Elementary Education at the one-room rural Jewel School and at the Yuba Grade School. She graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1955.

Agnes attended the University of Wisconsin-Stout where she met Jerome (Jerry) Wolf. They were married on August 19, 1958, at St. Wenceslaus Church in Yuba, Wisconsin. After their marriage they moved to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where Agnes taught Avocational and Professional Restaurant cooking classes at the Fox Valley Technical College for 35 years. Their lives were busy, but they found time to volunteer at St. Mary Catholic Church and in a variety of community activities, including the Altrusa Club of Oshkosh. Agnes was an Altrusa Angel. Agnes enjoyed preparing and broadcasting the weekly Hospitality, Nutrition and Recipe Radio show on WOSH, with Bob Burrell, for over 22 years. For several years Agnes also served as a volunteer instructor in Elderhostel classes. She firmly believed that God given knowledge and talents are meant to be shared with others.

Agnes wrote a cookbook, with the assistance of her husband, Jerry, and her granddaughter, Danielle. Some of the recipes date back over 75 years. Many of them are Czech family heritage recipes. She also wrote a brief historic book about the family farm where she grew up.

Agnes is survived by her husband, Jerry, of over 63 years; Children: Mary Beth (Dan) Borst, Neshkoro, Wisconsin, Ann Marie (Patrick) Noonan of Oshkosh, Wisconsin; Robert Joseph (Lori) Wolf of Woodbury, Minnesota; Grandchildren: Danielle Borst, Holly (fiancé Michael Tuyls) Borst, Megan (Zach) Niska, Allyson Wolf, and Emma Wolf; and numerous cousins. Agnes was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Roseanne M. Heidenreich.

A private family funeral mass was held. Interment was at Calvary Catholic Cemetery.
Agnes and Jerry enjoyed traveling around the United States after they retired and are grateful to have been able to see their granddaughters grow up to be wonderful young adults.

In lieu of flowers a memorial donation to either the Salvatorian Mission Warehouse ( or St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital ( would be appreciated.
