Agatha was born on June 18, 1935, in Biddeford, Maine to Stanley and Mary Curly Kenney. She attended St. Mary’s schools in Biddeford and graduated from Old Orchard Beach High School in 1954. Following graduation, she married Daniel DeRepentigny and together they had four children, Denise Daniel, Kelly and Shawn.
