Agnes Andruk

Agnes Fortune Andruk, 71, of Signal Mountain, was welcomed into the arms of the Lord on December 5, 2021. 

She was born on July 6, 1950, in New Haven, Connecticut. In 1973 she married her soulmate, Richard Dean Andruk and relocated to Chattanooga in 1974. Their daughter, Janice was born shortly thereafter in 1975.  A resilient woman, Agnes raised their daughter on her own and with the help of her dear circle of friends after Dean's untimely death. She earned a degree in Food Management Services from the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga in 1984. She loved to cook and prepare meals, and used her exemplary skills in the Hamilton County school system for many years, retiring as a site supervisor.  After retirement, she continued to do what she loved for local churches, including Second Presbyterian in Chattanooga, whose staff and congregation she deeply cared for.  God was a constant in her life, and she was an active member of St. Timothy's Episcopal Church.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Dean Andruk, her mother and father, Mr. And Mrs. William Fortune Sr., her sister, Margaret Lee, her brothers William and Thomas Fortune, and many beloved dogs that gave her such joy and pleasure.

Survivors include her daughter, Janice (Justin) Hunteman, a beloved grandson and granddaughter, sister, Barbara (John) Esposito, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and god-children.  She also leaves behind many dear friends that provided her much strength, joy and laughter through the years. 

An informal celebration of life will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 11, at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church on Signal Mountain.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Agnes' name to the Pet Placement Center of Chattanooga.

Arrangements are entrusted to Lane Funeral Home, 601 Ashland Terrace, Chattanooga, Tn. 37415, www.lanefh.com, 423 877-3524.
