Agnes D. Bayne, Fairfax activist

Agnes D. Bayne, a former nurse who participated in public school support activities and Fairfax County’s Lorton Senior Center, died Nov. 29 at her home in Fairfax County. She was 91.

The cause was congestive heart failure, her son Norman C. Bayne said.

Agnes Marie Dryden Bayne was born in Princess Anne, Md. She graduated in 1942 from what was then the Peninsula General Hospital School of Nursing in Salisbury, Md., and was a nurse at the hospital for 20 years.

Since 1967, she had lived in the Orange Hunt Estates Community in Fairfax.

She was a parent chaperone on school trips when her children were attending Fairfax public schools, and she opened her home for visiting students during school band exchange programs.

Since 1995, she had been active at the Lorton Senior Center. In 2008, she received from the Fairfax Board of County Supervisors an Outstanding Senior Adult Award.

Her husband of 54 years, Clarence E. Bayne, died in 1999. Survivors include three sons, Clarence E. Bayne Jr. of Lake Ridge, Va., Norman C. Bayne of Springfield, Va., and Kenneth D. Bayne of Menlo Park, Calif.; a sister; and eight grandchildren.
