She married the late Bernard J. Bougie on September 8, 1947 in Escanaba. Together, the couple raise two children, Wayne and Linda. She was employed at the Escanaba Senior High School as the Head Cook for 31 years; where she proudly carried the nickname dubbed by students as “Sarg”. Aggie could not always recall names, but no matter what she always greeted others with a warm smile and a “Hello there, Charlie Brown”. She was an active member of St. Anne’s Catholic Parish, where she was seen weekly before mass praying her rosary. Family meant the world to Aggie which was evident when you entered her home by seeing the collection of photos proudly displayed on her walls. She was also an amateur painter, which she also displayed proudly.
