Agnes Anna Maney

December 23, 1926 - December 7, 2021

Agnes Anna Maney, 94, loving wife of Howard J. Maney, a seasonal resident of Cape Coral, FL for 37 years, and lifetime resident of Milwaukee, WI, passed away Tuesday, December 7, 2021 in Cape Coral. She was born December 23, 1926, in Pulaski, WI to August and Angeline Brylski, now deceased. She was the middle child of 13 siblings.

Agnes was of the Catholic faith and attended St. Matthias Catholic Church in Milwaukee and St. Therese of North Fort Myers, FL. She had a long and fruitful life and was a great example to all who knew her. Patient, kind, gentle, warm, wise and one of the oldest people we know active on social media.

She is survived by her loving husband of 68 years, Howard Maney; children, Jeanne Behnke (Rich) of Fresno, CA, Lori Hendricks (Jim –deceased) of New Berlin, WI, and Leo Maney of New Berlin, WI; brother Robert “Fred” Brylski of Green Bay, WI; as well as seven grandchildren, Tracy, Rich (Jennifer), Ryan, Adam (Tiffany), Katie, Luke and Allie; and four great grandchildren, Logan, Julian, Alex and Kailey.

She had a long career as an Executive Assistant in the Corporate and Medical fields.  She enjoyed traveling the world and preparing home cooked meals we will always remember, especially the cheese torte that she dropped on the floor, and we still ate!  She, along with her husband, Howie, built a successful building and rental business.

A Visitation will be held on Saturday January 15, 2022 from 10 am to 11 am at St. Matthias Church, 9306 W.  Beloit Rd., Milwaukee, WI 53227. Mass of Christian Burial and interment to follow. A reception will follow at Meyers Restaurant, 4260 S. 76th St., Greenfield, WI 53220.

    My deepest sympathy to the family of Agnes Maney, my father’s sister. While I hadn’t had the opportunity to know her well, my father spoke highly of her. May the love of family bring you peace during this most difficult time.

    Howey, Leo and family,
    I’m so very sorry for your loss. I had lots of fun hanging out with Agnes, Howie and my parents after church out for breakfast. It was always entertaining to hear the stories. Agnes told some stories of her early years, jobs and Howie. I’m so happy to have been with her. It still gives me pause that she’s gone. I find comfort knowing that she is at the real party on the other side.
    Prayers and Grace as you mourn her departure.

    I am perhaps the oldest nephew of Aunt Agnes. I have many found memories of her, going back to when she worked as the Secretary for Fred Miller, of the well known beer company in Milwaukee, and the gifts of Miller mechanical pencils. Aunt Agnes was always gracious and treated myself and others very kindly. She was proud of her children, and illustrated an excellent example . . . she will be missed by many.

    Mr. Maney and family:
    So sorry to hear of Mrs. Maney’s passing. For 30 years she was one of my absolute favorite patients. I truly enjoyed our visits, she was kind, gentle and a wonderful conversationalist and I miss her visits. May God bless her and my sincere condolences to the family.
