Born 25 December 1929 in Gilt Edge, Montana on her
grandparents ranch. She was the second of the five
children born to Leslie “Punch” Richards and Elma Darcy
Richards. Her parents moved the family to Washington
State when she was 9 years old where she attended
school and graduated from Snohomish High School. After
graduating she worked for the Scott Paper Company in
the Testing Department until she retired after 30 years.
She met Theodore “Ted” Mikula at a dance and it was love
at first sight. He proposed two weeks later and they
married on the 29th of November 1958. Aggie had a love
of family that ran deep and only seemed to grow larger as
her family increased in size. Until the day she passed she
knew the names and birthdates of each and everyone of
her granchildren and great-grandchildren. Aggie had five
children Jeri, Toni, Jim, Nancy, and Carol, as well as, 12
grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren, and 6 great-great
grandchildren. She loved to dance and loved listening to
Bluegrass and Classic Country Music. After retirement
her and Ted used to ride all over the Country on their
Goldwing motorcycle before upgrading to an R.V. and by
doing so discovering a passion for camping in comfort.
She was a huge fan of the Seattle Seahawks and wasn’t
afraid to show her 12th man pride. Aggie was a devout
Catholic and found spiritual solace and comfort at St.
Mary’s Church in Marysville, Wa where she absolutely
loved all of the wonderful people she met there over the
years including fellow lay people, staff and clergy. She
would often tell you with tears in her eyes just how much
she loved the Father at St. Mary’s. She loved her family
and friends with all of her heart and she never held back
her hugs and loving words. She passed away peacefully
at home in her sleep surrounded by family.
