Agnes Elizabeth Perazzola (Grams) of Bonaire, Georgia passed away peacefully at the age of 91 on Monday, January 11, 2022 at Hazel Colson Hospice House in Perry, GA.
Born on August 4, 1930 in Boise, Idaho to the late James H. Hawley Jr. and Mary Dunn Hawley, Agnes was the granddaughter of James H. Hawley, former governor of Idaho and famous prosecutor. Ever the trail blazer, she graduated from University of Idaho in 1951 with a degree in political science and education. She went on to become a high school English and Literature teacher throughout her life.
She was the beloved wife of 69 years to Dino Perazzola and loving mother to two children, Carl J. Perazzola and Mary C. Perazzola (deceased). An adventurer to the core, she embraced her life as an Air Force Officer’s wife and supported Dino all over the United States and Japan. She loved the excitement and travel of military life and made many cherished friends along the way. After retiring from the Air Force, she and Dino moved to Uniontown, PA. Later, they moved to Bonaire, GA to be close to her son, Carl, and his family. A passionate sports fan and even more passionate grandmother, she spent most of the 1990s and early 2000s attending her grandchildren’s countless elementary to collegiate football, baseball, rugby, and soccer games. For decades, she went to every recital, play, and concert, reviewed homework, and kept her three grandchildren, and then her great grandchildren, in line. She was also a longtime parishioner at Sacred Heart Catholic Church of Warner Robins. An animal lover, Pittsburgh Steelers fan, lifelong democrat, activist, community volunteer, passionate and witty, Agnes embodied the pioneer spirit of her ancestors. Grams was the true matriarch of the Perazzola family, strong and loving.
She is survived by her husband, Dino J. Perazzola and son, Carl J. Perazzola (Jane), her three grandchildren, Carl S. (Lorraine), Laura (Damian), and Michael, and her five great grandchildren (Katelyn, Hannah, Samantha, Carl Dino, and Logan).
