Secrist, Agnes Morris (Campbell)

UID=1104


I was born in Dublin, Ireland, orphaned at age 12. My mother’s cousin, Tim O’Day and his wife Anna, brought me to Juneau in 1953, where I went to high school. I lived with the Day’s until 1956, when I married Jimmie Campbell. We had five daughters, Christina (deceased), Colleen, Catherine, Shannon and Patricia. I have three grandsons and four granddaughters. I worked for the Dept. of Education and Dept. of Public Safety until retirement in 1986. I married Richard Secrist in 1983. Although I miss Alaska very much, it is nice to wake up to sunshine every morning. I now raise donkeys and miniature horses. In 1999, Dick and I both survived cancer and we are both doing fine now.
