Wish we had a Coca-Cola for every time we've been asked, "Are you Aggie?"
Aggie (Agnes Catherine Murphy Dilks b. Jan 25,1925 in Wallowa, Oregon) was the aunt/great-aunt of the mother & daughter who founded Aggie's in 2007. Aggie also happened to be their dad/grand-dad's twin sister! Two little babes born to Irish settlers in the frigid winter in the early 1900's. Their mother was told they likely wouldn't survive, but she did her best and kept them in a little box near the cook stove to keep warm.
The babies survived. Aggie grew up, married her sweetheart, George, and was never without a Coca-Cola. She was an interesting fixture and charming character to all who knew her in little 'ol Wallowa, Oregon.
The original founders will always cherish funny and heart-warming memories of the most precious angel there ever was.
Today, Aggie's is owned and operated by a different mother-daughter team but who also have a cherished aunt/great-aunt in their lives and so the memory of Aggie and all of those other special Aunts and Great-Aunts who hold a dear place in the lives of those around them lives on in the name of our dear little business.
