Agnes was born in Madison on September 5, 1916 to Michael and Mary (McCabe) Cawley. She attended St. Raphael’s’ Catholic School and Madison Central High School.
She attended the University of Wisconsin and met Robert Duffey whom she married in 1941. They lived in Pittsburgh, PA, where Robert was Manager of a dairy and ice cream maker. It was in Pittsburgh that they welcomed their first daughter, Sally. With an opportunity to come back to Madison, Agnes and Robert settled into an apartment near the University of Wisconsin campus and his work. Agnes resumed her life with many childhood and high school friends, joining community groups, and participating in a favorite activity of bowling. She joined a team of former high school friends and they were known for their skill, fun, costume attire for events and many championships. During this time, their family grew with the addition of a daughter Jane, and two sons, Robert and James. Their marriage ended in 1953.
Agnes devoted her life to raising her family and being employed by the Wisconsin State Workers Compensation, Department of Workforce Development. In her position, she also actively represented employees in workers employment contract negotiation and was on many boards and committees. She was actively involved in church life at St. Raphael’s’ Cathedral, especially with the Ladies Altar Society, serving many lunches and receptions plus contributing her famous fudge to the fund raisers.
In later years, she renewed a childhood friendship with George Pieh, widowed from his wife Mercedes, who was also a friend of Agnes and bowling partner. Agnes and George married at St Raphael’s’ Cathedral in 1983 and enjoyed many years travelling and joining in the family weddings, births and celebrations of their extended families.

During their married life George and Agnes enjoyed the friendship and activities of the Elks, where George was a prominent leader. They joined in many trips and conventions plus the full social calendar and fund-raising activities of the Elks Lodge in Madison.
Agnes is survived by her deceased husband George Pieh; her four children, Sally Beyer-Woodcox, (Keith Woodcox)Dallas, TX., Jane Addison, Marietta, GA, Robert Duffey (Jennifer Dwight), Pleasant Hill, CA, and James (Mary) Duffey, Denver, CO.

She received great pleasure in her grandchildren and would ask everyone who visited her to look at their photos, tell stories about them and greatly delight in each child. Agnes is survived by seven grandchildren, Kurt (Kelly) Beyer, Melbourne, Australia, Stephanie Beyer, Austin, TX, Karsten (Michele)Beyer, New York, NY., Sean Addison (Shannon Green), Arlington, VA., Ryan (Sarah) Addison, Denver, CO, Kaitlin Duffey, San Francisco, CA, and Connor Duffey, Denver, CO.
Four great-grandchildren also survive Agnes and include Madison Ellis Beyer, Melbourne, Australia, Carter Addison, Arlington, VA, Brady Addison, Arlington, VA, and Benjamin Addison, Denver, CO.

The family wants to acknowledge Mary Schil, a devoted family friend who was part of our family and loved by Agnes. We also want to thank George Austin and Marty Vukelich-Austin, long-time friends and part of our extended family, for their attention and love for Agnes, especially in her later years and for being our presence when we all live so far away.

We thank the staff at Capitol Lakes for their gentle and professional care and attention to Agnes and for their appreciation of her always cheerful spirit. She enjoyed her later stages because of their constant care and devotion.

The family is also very grateful to Agrace Hospice for their dedication to Agnes through many health events over the past few years. They provided personalized and loving care and were always available to support her children through each medical event.
