Agnes Sedensky Roach, age 79 of Black Rock, beloved wife of Thomas J. Roach, Sr. passed away peacefully on May 26 surrounded by her loving family. Born on December 8, 1937 in Bridgeport to the late Andrew and Agnes Sedensky (née Amrich), she graduated from Lauralton Hall and worked for SNET until the birth of her first child. After several years of raising her six children, she returned to work as the much loved school secretary at St. Ann for seventeen years. In her retirement, she enjoyed traveling with her family, was a crossword puzzle enthusiast, an avid gardener, a voracious reader, and an expert, if not ruthless, pinochle player. Always putting others before herself, she will be dearly missed as a dedicated wife and mother as well as a doting grandmother. In addition to her husband of 56 years, Agnes is survived by her five siblings (James, Andrew, Joseph, Rita, and Therese), her six children, Maura O'Connor (Brian) of Fairfield; Kathleen Seperack (Andrew) of Black Rock; Erin Roach and Thomas Roach, Jr. (Jim) of Providence; James Roach (Sandrine) of Grass Valley, CA; and Peggy Roach (Jason) of Black Rock, and her eleven grandchildren: Molly, Jack, Tommy, Liam, John, Clare, Yuba, Eileen, River, Daisy and Oona. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at 11 AM directly at St. Ann Church in Bridgeport. Interment will be held privately in Oak Lawn Cemetery. Friends may greet the family on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 from 4-8 PM in the Lesko & Polke Funeral Home, 1209 Post Road in Fairfield Center. Her family would prefer memorial contributions to either: St. Ann Church 481 Brewster Street, Bridgeport, CT 06605 or the Black Rock Food Pantry 25 Princeton Street Bridgeport, CT 06605.
