Leah Mae Agner, 78, of Noblesville, passed away on Sunday evening, March 18, 2018, at Riverview Health in Noblesville. Born in Benton Ridge, Ohio, on September 16, 1939, Leah was the youngest child of the late Herbert and Mary (Williamson) Beck.
She grew up in Indian Lake, Ohio, and attended Indian Lake Schools. On June 3, 1956, Leah married Curtiss Deane Agner, Sr. of Wapakoneta, Ohio. Together they would enjoy 57 wonderful years together. Curtiss passed away on May 8, 2013.
Leah was first and foremost a homemaker at heart. She loved being a dedicated caregiver to her family and anyone else who needed looking after. Leah was a very proud mother, grandmother and great grandmother, and held her friendships in the same light. The way she saw it, friends and family were one and the same.
Leah worked for over 12 years as a teller with Fidelity Bank before deciding to leave the workforce. Retirement afforded her the time to relax and enjoy the things she wanted to do, such as sewing, knitting and crocheting. She also looked forward to spending time with her lunch group at Jim Dandy and playing with her Mahjong group.

Agner, Jr. (Erin) of Greenfield ; her daughter, Becky Clayton (Bob) of Sheridan ; five grandchildren, Eric Clayton (Katie) of Sandpointe, Idaho, Trey Clayton of Sheridan, Abby Moore (Kyle) of Westfield, Shanna Agner-Roach (Foster) of Greenfield and Andy Agner (Bailey) of Greenfield ; five great- grandchildren, Jackson Moore, Charlotte Agner, Ellie Clayton, Mackenzie Roach and Dominic Roach; two brothers, Don Beck (Angie) of Ohio and Jim Beck (Margi) of Tennessee ; one sister, Ruth Hammer of Ohio and many nieces and nephews.
