Agnes Elizabeth Cuff Carney 1944-2011 

Agnes Elizabeth Cuff Carney departed May 18, 2011 and resided in Indian Head, MD. Agnes was born on April 3, 1944 in Bridgeton to Lester Lamont Cuff Sr. and Marion Elizabeth Cuff. She spent her early years in Bridgeton, New Jersey until she married her husband Herbert L. Carney on May 4, 1963. During Herbert's service with the United States Air force, he took her on adventures to faraway lands where Agnes enjoyed living in, visiting and learning the cultures of various parts of the world; including Germany, England, Russia and Helsinki. After residing in Germany, Agnes and Herbert's first child, daughter Denice Elizabeth Carney, was born on May 30, 1970 and three years later, after returning to the States from England, they had a son, Herbert L. Carney III, born December 8, 1973.

Fascinated by nature, Agnes was a big-hearted animal lover and had the ability to attune herself to understanding their spirit, much like an animal whisperer. Among her favorite in the animal realm were birds. She immensely enjoyed having her cup of tea by an open window, rain or shine, so she could hear their songs. 

Agnes had a deep caring heart and showed it well in her affections for children, especially her grandchildren. She always presented their side of life, reminding those around that children had their own personality and their own path, stressing that it was important to help them cultivate that path with patient, and nurturing guidance. She found great satisfaction in being concerned with child development and pursued an education in child care; but due to her health, she was not able to exact that dream so she redirected her energy and poured extra caring and concern into the lives of her grandchildren, and great nieces and nephews.   Agnes was a fantastic cook. She was fascinated with the Food Network cooking shows and followed various chefs. Her excitement about trying new recipes that tickled her fancy was inspiring. She will be remembered for her delectable pot roast, tasty  coleslaw, scrumptious pound cake and her uncanny ability to make liver and onions taste like a steak and onion dinner.  Family was very important to Agnes. Whatever role she presented herself in, be it a daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt or grandmother, she loved togetherness, always wanted peace, and gave her best. She preferred to have the best outlook, melting troubles away with laughter. She shined when she was smiling and laughing and she wanted everyone to do the same.

Agnes was preceded in death by her mother, Marion E. Cuff. She is survived by her husband, Herbert L Carney Jr. of MD; daughter, Denice E. Carney of OK; son, Herbert L. Carney III of VA; father, Lester L. Cuff, of NJ; sister, Lilia L. (Ralph) Pierce of NJ, and two brothers, Lester L. (Jo Ellen) Cuff of NH and Albert R. (Joanne) Cuff of NJ, and also, two grandchildren, several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. 

Agnes was a much-loved woman who will be deeply missed.  Submitted with love by, husband, children and grandchildren.

School bus accident claims Dover man, 71

A collision with a school bus claimed the life of a Dover man Monday afternoon. The accident occurred about 3:15 p.m. Monday on Dover-Kenton Road just north of Dover. According to Delaware State Police spokesman Cpl. Haiinan Blades, the school bus was stopped in the southbound lane unloading three children from Capital School District, when it was struck from behind by a 1993 Ford Escort driven by Wilson C. Carney, 71, of 5399 Pearson's Corner Road.

"He apparently didn't see the bus, he didn't see that it was stopped," Cpl. Blades said. Mr. Carney was taken to Kent General Hospital where he was pronounced dead. There were no skid marks on the pavement. Investigators estimate the bus was moved about 15 feet by the impact. Neither the bus driver nor the children were injured, Cpl. Blades said.

"There were only three kids on the bus, and they all got off here," he said. "And the one who had to cross the road (to get home) hadn't started yet, fortunately."

Mr. Carney was the 79th person to die on Delaware roadways this year, compared to 78 traffic deaths at the same time in 1994.
