The life of Agnes Hollis Rodgers began on March 8, 1928, in Tallapoosa, Georgia. The daughter of Lillie Ree Camp and Elijah David Hollis, Agnes was the eldest of six children. A few months after her 16th birthday, she got her first job in the cotton mills. While going to school, working, and taking care of her family, she graduated from Center High School in 1947. A few months later, she married the love of her life, Amos Rodgers, on Nov 7. She worked in retail stores such as J.C. Penney, Tot and Teen, and Hengstler’s in West Point while being a devoted wife and mother to three children. She was most passionate about her faith and family, and she enjoyed genealogical research, gospel music and maintaining her home. In her later years, she is most known by the community for being seen working in her yard on Avenue C.
