CANFIELD - Agnes Fedorisin Siragusa, 92, former longtime resident of Youngstown’s west side, passed away early Saturday morning, Jan. 11, 2020, at Windsor House Canfield after a long and fulfilling life.
Agnes was born Oct. 14, 1927, Youngstown, a daughter of the late Martin and Helen Rusnov Nestich, and lived in Youngstown for most of her life.
Agnes graduated from Chaney High School in 1945, and attended Penn-Ohio Business College and the Paramount School of Cosmetology. She worked for Ohio Bell for eight years, and was a secretary for the Youngstown City Schools at her alma mater, Chaney High School, retiring in 1993. She was also a homemaker, wife, and mother, who raised four sons, of whom she was very proud.
In her younger days, Agnes was active in many local events on Youngstown’s west side. She was well-known for making rosaries at St. Mary Byzantine Catholic Church and the Franciscan Friary, and was featured in an article in Canfield’s Town Crier this past spring, and on WYTV’s Hometown Heroes for her rosary-making.
She enjoyed making apple strudel, and shared generously with family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Agnes also enjoyed bowling.
She was a member of Our Lady of Sorrows, Holy Name of Jesus Church in Youngstown.
Agnes is survived by three sons, Jerry (Elaine) Fedorisin of Oxford, Mich., Steve Fedorisin (Loretta Bleggi) of Boardman, and Bill Fedorisin (Lorraine Hockenberry) of Ellsworth Township; seven grandchildren, Nate, Hannah, Lillian, Jamie Lynn, Billy, Matthew, and Andrew; two sisters, Barbara Walzer of New Castle, Pa. and Theresa Campbell of Youngstown; and a daughter-in-law, Diane Fedorisin of Charleston, South Carolina.
Agnes’ first husband, John Fedorisin, whom she married June 17, 1947, passed away Aug. 28, 1978. Her second husband, Vincent Siragusa, whom she married in June of 1989, passed away May 4, 1998. A son, John Fedorisin; an infant son; a grandson, Adam Fedorisin; five brothers, Michael, Martin, Thomas, Steve, and Joe Nestich; and two sisters, Mary Coller and Alice Birskovich, are also deceased.
There are no calling hours. A private service will be held at a later date. Committal will take place at Calvary Cemetery in Youngstown, where Agnes will be laid to rest next to her husband, John.
