Agnes was born on November 11, 1943 to Emil and Josephine (Barina) Stach in Breckenridge, MN. She grew up in Breckenridge and attended St. Mary's School and Breckenridge High School. She was united in marriage to Robert Kurtz in Breckenridge on October 8, 1961. The couple lived in Fairmount, ND where they raised their children and Agnes worked as a waitress at Doug's Bar. Robert passed away on September 23, 1987.

Agnes enjoyed fishing (as long as AJ cleaned them), hunting, cooking, reading, crocheting, and quilt making. She loved to go for rides and travel, but her main love was her family especially when they got together for the 4th of July.
