Our deepest condolences and prayers to the family of Agee, our friend & neighbor for over 25 years. Our sons, Dominique & Tommy played and grew up together as friends. Agee & George were nice and kind neighbors and our families looked out for each other. Agee had a warm, generous, and calm spirit and always had a big smile for you. I always enjoyed our conversations. She cherished her faith, her family, her friends and her students. May God bless her soul and wrap his loving arms around her beloved George and the rest of her family. RIP Agee, you will truly be missed.

Agee, my Love, thank you for having me for 40 years. Your unique contagious smile used to bring light to any darkest room. You are too good to be true. I can still feel you around me. You cannot leave me in the darkness. Thank you for your guidance and support throughout the 40 years of Life with me. I did not have a clue that you will leave me so soon at the age of 62. I need your help to live on this earth. So, please help me. I have tried my best to save your life to continue with me. But God has another plan for you and me. Please forgive me if I did anything wrong without my knowledge to hurt you in any way. Do not worry Agee, my Love, I will see you soon. I missed you dear.
Agee was a beautiful, God-fearing, brilliant and smart woman. She was a wonderful mother to Tommy. She was always a lovely host to our many family gatherings and her smile will not be forgotten. I still can not believe that she’s gone. My condolences to my only loving brother for the loss of his dear wife. Rest In Peace, Agee.
Your untimely death has put a whole in my heart. I thought I’ll see you again, when I came back for a visit soon!
Thank you, for always treating me respectfully, always making sure I had a seat in your kitchen. You always were a perfect hostess in our gatherings and feels like a bit of light has gone out from our lives.
Your dedication to teaching is legendary and your skills will be your legacy. I was always proud to tell others that you were a well respected educator in Dekalb County.
You and Joju were blessed to be together for 40yrs. You will now be his guardian Angel.
I miss you already and always will.😔
Rest in Heaven, Angel Agee.❤️
Your Sheela Chechi.
“There is no comfort when we lose someone like a beloved sister in law. All we can do is remember them for who they were and the beauty they bought to our lives“
Ageechechi, I miss you dear. I still can’t believe your sudden departure from us to Heavenly Father. I will miss your beautiful smile at the door and your greetings “ Vaa Asshe vaa Joy”. You were a good cook and a great hostess in gatherings. Your iconic Masala dosa was yummy. You were a loving wife to my brother and a great mother to Tommy.
Ageechechi, the beautiful, smart and bold educator Rest In Peace!!
Agee Auntie was a smart, kind-hearted and strong person; this was obvious whenever I interacted with her.
I miss you, Agee Auntie. Though you have passed on, the standard you set for a life well-lived continues to inspire me.
My deepest condolences to Uncle Joju and to the many who already miss her so very much.
Agee Aunty – we will miss you so much. It’s hard to believe that you are gone. Thank you for being so kind and loving to me and everyone around you. Uncle Joju told me that you insisted on attending Charlie’s funeral even though you were undergoing treatment in Newnan at that time. I appreciate your kind words and I am so thankful to have seen you that day. You will not be forgotten! My sincere condolences to Uncle Joju during this difficult time. Rest In Peace!
Agee I missed you already. I had no idea you would be gone in the blink of an eye. I l love you so much . Agee was 22 year old beautiful girl when she came to our home.She was married to our brother George forty years ago. we are seven sisters and one brother.our mother loved her so much, probably more than us.she had a brilliant, smart personality.we been always together as a family. I missed you so much 😍🥰🥲
Agee aunty – I miss your contagious smile and thoughtful conversations. You were a warm soul and welcomed us all into your house for family gatherings. Gone too soon but your memory lives on forever. You’re in a better place now, reunited with your babies. Please give Tommy a big hug for me.
My earliest memory of Agee Aunty was from the early 80s; I was maybe 11 years old, the newlyweds came to our house for dinner and sat so close together on the couch, uncle’s arm around her. I remember her voice, outgoing personality, confidence… not at all what you would expect from a young 20 something in a new country… I thought, “wow, she’s different!” Just thinking about her over the past 40 years, nothing changed about her from that first time we met. To an incredible wife, mother, aunty, educator, rest in peace.
Agee ,It is hard to believe that you are not with us anymore . Thank you for all the support & celeberations we together. You are going to miss dearly sister -in- law no.. ‘sister’ . Especialy your cooking & singing. you are going to be in our hearts & in our prayers always. Rest in peace until we joined.
My heartfelt condolences to the family of Agee Puthumana. She will truly be missed. Thank you for sharing her with me at Elizabeth Andrews High School. Thank you Agee for being such a sweet friend and co worker❤️
Oh Agee, you were brave, steadfast and always had a smile. I am so sad you are gone but I know your love is beaming out to George. You are relieved of the pain and heartache but your love is still shining through. I pray its brightness and grace encourages all of us who knew and think of you. Because of your faith, you are another of my real life spiritual heros. You endured so much quietly, gently … and always with a knowing smile.
Agee aunty was one of a kind. She was always so welcoming. I remember when my brother, Jacob, and I used to have sleepovers with Tommy (our late, beloved cousin), Agee aunty would be so caring, and she made the BEST egg and rice. Her contagious personality was also always on display during the family get togethers while growing up.
Agee aunty, you have left us so soon. Though you are gone from this Earth, we find solace in the fact that you are back together with your two sons; this gives us some degree of comfort. We will see you again on the other side when it’s our own respective times. Until then, continue to watch over us. Say hello to Tommy for me. Love you!
To Mr George Puthumana and the family:
My deepest condolences and may God wrap his arms around you and the family to give you the strength to live on without your dear sweet Agee! I truly believe she is an angel watching over us all! She was not only a dear friend to me but a surrogate mom to my daughter Alexis! She often referred to as my little sister at work! We were two peas in a pod ! We were like sibblings when we would fuss with each other but by the next day were close as ever! We shared some very good times and we knew almost all members of our respective families! We laughed and sometimes we even cried together! She was an awesome teacher who really cared about her students! She was dearly loved by her students as well as our Open Campus/ Elizabeth Andrews High School family! She was so caring, warm and friendly to all! She will definitely be missed by all of us and we will never forget her! RIP my dear friend! Alexis need you to watch over us!♥️♥️♥️🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
Agee Aunty left us all way too early. I still remember our chats about new sarees, gold jewelry and her fabulous recipes. When I cared for Ammamma at her house, she would sometimes bring me some of the Kerala delicacies that she whipped up. It always brought a huge smile to my face. I will miss her booming voice and her gracious hospitality. The 1st reading that she chose (which I read at her funeral) was very poignant. Wisdom 3:1-9. It mentions that she is at peace. I take solace in knowing that cancer can no longer hurt her, and that she is with her beloved twins. As the priest mentioned, heaven needed a phenomenal math teacher! It all adds up…
To Uncle Joju – we are all here for you. You are a very strong man, and have been through a lot. Please know that we all admire your strength. I will keep you in my prayers.
I am in shock that, Agee, you are no longer with us. We were so privileged to have you as a sister and soulmate to Joju for forty years . Thank you for entertaining all of us for our get-togethers and be so gracious and generous. I am sure you have joined with Jacob, Tommy and your father. Please watch over us. We love you and miss you 💓!!!
In memory of my sister-in-law, Agee Puthumana who’s amazing spirit and love of life touched us all. There will never be another like her.
While helping Joju uncle with the slideshow, I noticed how many places y’all traveled and realized that Agee Aunty was able to experience the world more than most people can in their lifetime. Seeing the pictures with Tommy also reminded me how much she loved her children. Even though her life was cut short, and unexpectedly, the one thing that gives me some source of peace is that she is reunited with her kids up in Heaven.
Rest in heavenly peace Agee Aunty.
Agee Chechi, you will truly be missed forever! I remember 40 years ago, when you first came to our parent’s house in Trichur (Kerala, India) after your wedding, you asked me so many questions about our family and our family traditions. You asked what the family routine was for Appan and what he likes in the morning, lunch and even for his 4 o’clock snack. I remember you even mentioned how there was a large jug of water sitting on the dining room table and said to me “Oh Appan likes Jeeraka vellam (cumin water)”. That showed me that Agee Chechi wanted to get to know the family and blend into our family.
Thank you Agee Chechi for all the family gatherings you used to host for us. Like a mother, you would stand behind the counter and tell all the brothers-in-law to plate their food and make sure everyone got their food before she did. Chechi, I will never forget your laugh, our conversations on life and work, and all of your cooking recipes.
May God’s blessings welcome you with open arms in the gates of heaven.
Love you Dear.
Agee aunty, you are so deeply missed. I will always remember you asking me at family gatherings, “Did you get enough food, Sophia?!” You always wanted to make sure we were comfortable and happy in your home. You hosted us with so much graciousness, year after year. Your hospitality and kindness made every family Christmas party so incredibly special. I am shocked and saddened that you were called to Heaven so soon, but I am comforted to know you are at peace and reunited with Tommy and Jacob. We all love you so much.
For close to a decade, Agee and I were “next door” colleagues — our classrooms at EAHS were adjacent to each other. Every work day, besides sharing materials, we also shared stories, laughter, new “learnings” & jargon, and vented frustrations which I called “explaining, not complaining!” Agee would say–matter of factly—”It is what it is!”
Listening to Agee express all the waves of emotion, love and heartbreak about her son who had died before I met her, I came to an understanding of my own mother, who had lost her son also, my older brother at a young age. My focus for most of my life had been about “my own” feelings around that. What I learned from Agee about a mother’s love and loss, helped me to understand and learn more of my own mom’s experience. Suffice it to say, she was a “TEACHER,” not just a math teacher.
My condolences to her husband and family, her former colleagues and her community. May she be at peace.
The thing that stands out about Agee Aunty was how great she was at so many things. For starters, she was an amazing mom. I admired how she would listen and try to understand how Tommy felt on things that were important to him. She deeply cared, showed her love and stood by him no matter what. Then there is the way she and Uncle Joju interacted, they were a team, they supported each other, no matter how difficult the task was. Most marriages couldn’t handle the weight they had to endure but theirs was bond that only grew stronger out their hardship.
I knew some of her students at Open Campus, when I was younger. I would proudly say she’s my Aunty, cause I knew what kind of teacher she was. In summery, a lot would say, “Mrs. P is tough but fair and she would care enough to listen me if I can’t understand something”. Despite how tough life got, she never forgot her students.
Anyone who met her, would never forget her smile, her contagious giggle/laugh and her inquisitive mind. After Tommy’s death, her faith, the dedication and strength to continue to care for those around her was both astonishing and inspiring. She truly was a remarkable person. We will miss you, you were what this family needed. I hope you continue to guide us and I pray you’re reunited with your two sons.
I enjoyed her cheerful nature and caring personality, and since we share the same birthday (mine a year earlier), it was always a wonderful day with her in December! She will be greatly missed. I offer my most sincere condolences to Agee’s family and friends.
Mrs. Puthumana, a was kind, loving and considerate teacher, I had the pleasure of working with her two semesters. She were a jewel to EAHS, and her students. She was truly an Angel. I will miss her dearly, so will the students and staff will also.
With God’s Name The Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer
In loving memory of my dear friend and colleague Agee Puthumana, I offer this prayer.
” I come from God and God is my goal. No trial nor misfortune will disturb the course of my life which has a much higher goal than mere comfort. Come what may, the contentment of my mind and heart will not be disturbed.”
Sending light and love. May the beautiful, calm, and regal spirit of Mrs. Puthumana live on. 💕
