Dallas Society Doyene Agness Robertson Celebrated Her First Century This Past Weekend

What a memorable Mother’s Day Weekend this was, especially for one mom! In addition to being one of the countless mothers being honored on Sunday, longtime local society arbiter Agness Robertson celebrated her 100th birthday. Thanks to son Ross Robertson, a private reception with champagne and cake was held at The Reserve on Saturday afternoon with quite an impressive turnout. Why, even Jack Boles’ A-team Gary Ferraro and Kathy Weidman-Stout were welcoming the guests at the porte-cochere.

Agness Robertson’s birthday sock

For newcomers to the annals of Dallas society, Agness and her late husband/retired Braniff exec Tom Robertson were the mainstay of the society reporting for eons having worked at Park Cities publications. While Agness would take copious notes, Tom would photograph the boldface types, saying, “Teeth, teeth!” to the more serious types at events.

Wearing a banner reading “I’m 100 today” and happy birthday socks, Agness was seated on a tall chair welcoming folks like Lynn Dealey, Malcolm Reuben, Sandi and Ron Haddock, Ruth Altshuler, Caroline Rose Hunt, Sally Blanton, Yvonne Crum, Martha Tiller and Jo Ann Holt, just to name a few.

BTW, belated “Happy Birthday” cards can be sent to Agness at The Reserve, 12271 Coit Road, Dallas 75251.
