Mary Agnes Youchoff
Mary Agnes Youchoff, 85, of Crossville, passed away May 30, 2019, at Life Care Center-Crossville.
She was born Oct. 14, 1933, in Mooresville, NC, to harry Caldwell and Gorden (Anderson) Caldwell. After moving to Atlanta, GA, she met John Youchoff of West Frankfort, IL, and married Nov. 25, 1960. They remained in Atlanta for 35 years and Mary worked as a computer operator at American Cyanamid for more than 25 of them before moving to Crossville.
Mary's mere presence was a daily inspiration to her husband, and she will be remembered by all those she met for her genuine and pleasant demeanor.
Affectionately called Furby by those closest to her, Mary treasured her friends and family. She was a devoted aunt always ready for any new adventure with her nieces and nephews, who loved her very much. She took many trips to Atlanta and Gulf Shores where she could spend time with life-long friends and former neighbors and reminisce with "The Girls" of American Cyanamid about "Bunco Nights." And she always looked forward to her annual pilgrimage to "The World's Longest Yardsale" with her dearest friend, Leona Devos.
She had a love and talent for a variety of crafts and delighted in making gifts for others. She particularly enjoyed creating beautiful ceramics. And though she never cooked, Mary was an enthusiastic collector of cookbooks.
She was preceded in death by her parents and four siblings, John, William, Elizabeth and twin brother Macfie.
Mary Agnes is survived by John, her husband of 59 years, and her six wonderful nieces and nephews, Mike Caldwell, MaryLynne Caldwell, Chris (Teddy) Ridgeway, Richard (Kim) Caldwell, Susan (John) Hartley and Rebecca Caldwell.
Mary Agnes was laid to rest at the Tower Heights Cemetery in West Frankfort, IL, June 10, 2019.
