After a brief and unexpected illness, Mrs. Agnes M. Dozier of Neptune, NJ, transitioned to her Heavenly Father on 23 February 2021. A life-long resident of Eatontown and later Neptune, NJ, Agnes was pre-deceased by her husband, Livius J. Dozier; daughter, Kim Shay Dozier; mother, Adelaide (Addie) Thornton, step-father, Harry Thornton and her only sibling, Connie M. Jones.
Agnes received her early education in the Eatontown public schools and furthered her education by becoming a hairdresser by trade. A lover of fashion, she retired from the garment industry after many years of employment. She was a faithful member of the Saint Augustine Episcopal Church, Prospect Ave., Asbury Park, NJ, where she served with honor and recognition for her many years of service as an Usher. Agnes supported her church as a faithful servant until her death.
Agnes leaves to cherish her memories the children of her brother, Shirley Jones Elam (Otis) of VA; Steve Jones (Sharon) of NC; Larry Jones (Stacy) of SC and Tammy Jones of NC. Devoted and caring cousins, DeRethy Chunn Phillips (Bill) and Cheryl Chunn of Eatontown, NJ, as well as a host of other great-nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
