Agnes Marie Fend

April 12th, 1937 - May 15th, 2020

Agnes Marie Fend, also known as Jacki died of causes resulting from dementia on May 15, 2020 while living at Touchmark Meadow Lake Village in Boise Idaho. She was surrounded by her three daughters. She was supported in her transition by two Air Force jet fly overs, a parade of classic old cars (one of her favorite things), entertainers and a camel named Clyde. She always did things with a flare! Jacki was born near Valentine Nebraska in April of 1937. We never knew for sure if the family story of her being born in a silo was true or not. She was the first born to Lawrence and Helen Beman. Her siblings, Larry, Dicky, Butch and Rita followed. They all lived in Laramie Wyoming where Butch continues to live with one of mom’s dearest friends, Leilani Hesson. Jacki was a successful real estate entrepreneur in Idaho Falls ID (Eagle Rock Realty), an activist for women’s rights (president of the Idaho National Organization of Women), leader, trainer, and a supporter of those in need (longtime volunteer to the Assistance League). She was a great cook, hostess and connoisseur of a great martini. She was married twice; the first time to a young cowboy, Dean Hagmann in 1955, the father of her three children Dee, Lynda, and Terri. She married her second husband, Captain Edwin Fend in 1989 on the Queen Mary. Her stepchildren John, Jim and Deborah provided them with 5 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. Jacki and Ed moved to Reno after her retirement and lived there until after his death in 2003. She then chose to move to Boise Idaho to be closer to her daughters. She was the consummate supporters of her daughters, always reminding them they could do or be anything they wanted. She was classy and gracious and yet was willing to tent camp, white water raft, and ski the Tetons to create the wonderful family memories that her children fondly share. She ensured the tight relationships between herself and her daughters through many, many “girls’ weekends” for shopping, dining, and group therapy to make sure their relationships were health and well developed. Jacki is survived by Dee Childers and Lou Landry, Lynda and Cliff Brighton, Terri Hagmann, Butch Beman and Leilani Hesson, five nieces and nephews, John and Jeanie Fend, Jim and Bambi Fend, Deborah and Rudy McElroy, and all their grandchildren and great grandchildren. We would like to thank the caregivers, nurses, and staff at Meadow Lake Owyhee and MorningStar Assisted Living. Memorial contributions may be made in lieu of flowers to the Assistance League or other organizations supporting women. Celebration of life to be scheduled post COVID.

🕯️ I'm sending my condolences to the family of Jacki. I was a caregiver at Touchmark and I worked with Jacki a lot and talked with her many times. All of her stories and remarks to me were amazing and impactful. I would always play with her stuffed animals with her and share stories here and there. Jacki had a calming, yet strong, spirit and I was always delighted to help and talk with her. May she rest in peace, I will never forget what I learned from Jacki as I move away for college and continue with my nursing career!

One of the most impressive ladies I've ever met! She was my mentor in the 80's and I always loved working for her at Coldwell Banker!. I always admired her strong independence and how she was full of confidence and pizzazz. I've really missed her dearly and think of her often. What a wonderful role model she was for me! Thanks, Jacki, my friend! -Tami Lewis

🕯️ I send my deepest condolences to Jackie’s family. I feel so blessed to have known her. When I think of Jackie I see elegance and grace. I love the energy she brought into the room. I always admired how she raised 3 beautiful girls and somehow taught them how to be the best of friends. I knew she must have been a great Mom, by the way they loved and respected her. I always told her that she looked like a movie star. Jackie was beautiful inside and out. I will miss her very much!

To the Fend family, Lynda, Terri and my dear friend Dee. I am so sorry for your loss and I send my prayers during this difficult time all while our lives are being impacted by this Covid virus. At the same time, she is at rest and so this could be a blessing as well. But it is never easy. Your mom was a beautiful person inside and out. My menories go directly to the times when I saw her at the chiropractor. She would always give me a big smile and an even bigger hug. I am going to miss her. I lost my mother in November and I thank you Dee for being there for me. Please let me know how I can help and be there for you and your family. May God bless you all and I love you all dearly.
