Dr. Agnes Jani-Acsadi, née Jáni, 61, of Avon, wife of Dr. Gyula Acsadi, passed away Wednesday, May 9th, 2018 in Boston, MA. She fought with resilience, bravery and a bright smile throughout her illness. Born November 27, 1956, in Pécs, Hungary, to Dr. Márta Gáspár and Dr. Lajos Jáni, both prominent pediatricians, Agnes graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pécs Medical School, where she met her beloved husband. Agnes first arrived with her family to the United States in 1989 and conducted pioneering research in neuromuscular diseases at the University of Wisconsin and later at the Montreal Neurological Institute in Canada. She successfully established herself as a clinical neurologist at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI, for over a decade and enjoyed raising her family by the Great Lakes. After her children settled on the East Coast, Agnes relocated with her family to Avon in 2010. She continued her well-respected career at UConn Health and Hartford Hospital. During her tenure as faculty at UConn, she served as Vice Chair of Neurology and Director of Clinical Neurophysiology. Agnes’ healing passion in treating her patients and unconditional care for her family shone in all she accomplished. She was an active member of her former parish, Holy Cross RC Church of Detroit, and was known as a vibrant host and cook. She loved spending time with her grandchildren, walking her dog on the Farmington River, and British TV. Agnes delighted in traveling with her family, from Spain and Acadia National Park to her native Hungary. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her loving children, son Daniel Acsadi (wife Leticia) of Newton, MA; daughter Marta Weinstein (husband Douglas) of Dix Hills, NY; and daughter Nora Acsadi of Avon, CT; as well as her sister, Márta Paál (husband György), and family in Hungary. Agnes’ storytelling will be greatly missed by her grandchildren, Oliver and Julian, of whom she was endlessly proud. Visiting hours will be held on Thursday, May 24th from 5:30-7:00 PM at Carmon Funeral Home and Family Center, 301 Country Club Road in Avon. All are welcome to attend her Funeral Mass celebrated at St. Mary Star of the Sea in Unionville on Saturday, May 26th at 10:00 AM, followed by internment at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Avon. In lieu of flowers, donations made in her memory may be sent to Caring for a Cure online or c/o Mass General Hospital Development Office, 125 Nashua St, Boston MA 02114. Agnes’ family expresses their gratitude to the many doctors, nurses and support staff at Mass General Hospital, Yawkey 7, and Lunder 9, as well as at the UConn Cancer Center, for their dedication and compassion.
