She worked for Stearns Manufacturing for two years, Alterra for seven years, and was a foster grandparent for many years. Angie was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Immaculate Conception Christian Mothers, and Rice American Legion Post 473 Auxiliary. She enjoyed puzzles, especially word finds. Angie was a bubbly, feisty, smiley, and very giving person. She loved to garden and could make anything grow. It was evident in the gardens she created wherever she lived.
