Posted By Hall-Wynne On December 28, 2008 @ 12:00 am In Obituaries | No Comments

Agnes Pleasants Sorgi, age 81, died peacefully Sunday, December 28, 2008 in her Durham home. She was born in Chatham, VA to the late William Arthur Pleasants and Lettie Herndon Pleasants on January 18, 1927. Agnes was preceded in death by her husband of 57 years, Walter V. Sorgi.

Agnes graduated Durham High School in 1945 and soon thereafter married Walt, who was a catcher with the Durham Bulls baseball team. Together they founded The Sorgi Insurance Agency in 1954. The agency continues as a family business today with her son Jim as the owner and President. Agnes continued to work full time in the agency until her death.

Agnes was an active member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Durham where she served as a Eucharistic Minister. She was also a member of the Catholic Daughters
Agnes was a wonderful wife and mother to her children. Although she worked every day in the insurance agency, she would always be sure to be home when her children got home from school. She touched many people with her warmth and graciousness and will be greatly missed.

Agnes is survived by her four children: Donna Sorgi and husband, David Bernstein of Jamaica Plain, MA; Vince Sorgi and wife, Carol, of Durham, NC; Jim Sorgi and wife, Monte, of Chapel Hill, NC; and Cathy Sorgi and husband Rick Wilkins, also of Durham; and five grandchildren: Zach Sorgi, Mark Harper, Jessica Sorgi, Olivia Wilkins and Kate Sorgi.

Donna, Vince, Jim and Cathy,
I’m so sorry to learn of your loss. Agnes was a great lady. I have pleasant memories of watching tv at your house during those early years. She rode us and made us behave.

Just know that I’m thinking of you all and praying for your comfort during this time. I’m off at noon for the farm until Sunday so I will not be able to visit with you. Take care.
