DANTE, VIRGINIA - Agnes Pauline Blevins Fleenor, 90, died Sunday, January 27,

She was born in Wise County, Virginia near St. Paul, Virginia, on February 21, 1917, one of twelve children born to the late Henry Hopkins and Margaret Glovier Blevins. On November 15, 1937 she married Mr. Boyd Ralph Fleenor and became a resident of Dante, Virginia. She attended the Dante Assembly of God church where she worked with the children's church and actively coordinated the costuming for all Easter and Christmas productions. Her hobbies were quilting, music, and gardening. Education was important to her. At the age of 70, she graduated with a degree from Southwest Virginia Community College. She has been a great inspiration to her family.
