Agnes Leona Case was born June 5, 1929, to Jules and Helen (Bouckaert) Anseeuw on the family farm near Minneota, MN.
As the first born, she quickly became her dad’s right hand. Also aiding neighbors and relatives whenever needed. Employment beyond the farm included candling eggs and proofreading for the local newspaper.

There, she met and married Darrell Case. They transferred again in 1959 to Moorhead, bought their first and second homes, and raised a family of three children.
