Agnes (Hendry) Domonell Sedgwick, 93, of New Hartford, died Saturday, January 16 at home with family. She lived a long and full life devoted to family, friends, and community. Agnes was born in Stamford to Alison and Hugh Hendry on January 1, 1928, and had one sister, Alison Matous, who died in 1985. She graduated from Stamford High School and Central Connecticut State University, with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Business Education. She had left college her junior year to help out at home, but never forgot her desire to teach. When her youngest son was in first grade, she picked up her college career and graduated in 1963, after which she taught business subjects at Torrington High School until retiring in 1989. Agnes married Allyn E. Sedgwick in 1988. Always a lover of sports, she was encouraged by Allyn to take up golf. She was very active in the Eastwood Ladies and West Farms Golf Group at Tunxis. The couple spent their winters in Port Orange, Florida, where they golfed and made many friends, and also spent many weeks in the summer at their cottage on Martha’s Vineyard. She will always be remembered for her award-winning apple pies and for teaching her grandchildren to bake. She is survived by her son Bill Domonell and wife Beth, son Daniel Domonell and wife Diane, niece Bonnie Emerson and husband Roger, nephew Joe Matous, and her stepchildren Chip Sedgwick, Jim Sedgwick, Tom Sedgwick, Bob Sedgwick, Peter Ambrozaitis, Lori Soapes, Bob Ambrozaitis, John Ambrozaitis, and David Ambrozaitis. She was Nana to Justin Domonell, Jared Domonell, Kristen Gutierrez, and Eric Domonell, and great grandmother to Bodhi, Jasper, Eddy, and Griffin. A celebration of her life will be held in the barn at Tranquil Hollow Farm in the spring or when it becomes safe to do so.
