Agnes A. Polacek

Feb 7, 1922 – Jul 12, 2017

Polacek, Agnes A. “Agi” passed away at Life Care in Elkhorn on July 12, 2017.  She was born on a farm near Prague, Nebraska on Feb 7, 1922.  Agi was preceded in death by her parents, Emil and Mary (Vasa) Polacek; brothers, Frank and John; and sisters, Julie and Margaret (Palensky).  Agi is survived by brothers: Robert of Wahoo, Alf of Prague, and Emil of Wahoo; sisters, Marie (Sloup) of Morse Bluff and Dorothy (Vavak) of Prague; 28 nieces and nephews; many grandnieces and grandnephews; and several great-grandnieces and great-grandnephews.

Since the mid-60s, Agi was a resident of Omaha where she was active in volunteer ministries at Christ the King Church, including saying the rosary with residents at Hickory Villa Assisted Living for many years.  In her early years, Agnes received a teaching certificate from Midland College and taught in a one-room school house, PS51, near Prague.  She worked at many jobs in Omaha through the years including the gift shop at Bergen Mercy Hospital and at Precision Optical.  Agi was a loyal and consistent donor to numerous charitable organizations.

In 2002, Agi’s life took a turn when, at the age of 80, she was hit by a car as she was walking to work.  Since then she had resided at Hickory Villa in Omaha. Her years of infirmity did not stop her from continuing to be devoted to her church, watching EWTN, and enjoying the bingo and crafts at Hickory Villa. Agi was a huge fan of Creighton basketball and would often be seen sitting in her apartment wearing her Creighton t-shirt and cheering on her team. Her lifelong spirit of faith and generosity lives on as an example for all of us.

The family will receive friends Thursday, July 20th from 6pm to 7pm at the Bel Air Chapel, 12100 W. Center Rd. in Omaha, with VIGIL SERVICE to follow at 7pm.  MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL Friday, July 21st at 10am, Christ the King Catholic Church, 654 S. 86th St. in Omaha.  Interment Friday, 12:30pm at St. John Cemetery in Prague, NE.  Memorials are suggested to Columban Fathers, St. John Catholic Church in Prague, or Notre Dame Sisters Retirement Fund, 3501 State St., Omaha, NE 68112.
