She was a devoted wife, loving mother and a very special grandmother and will always be remembered for her acts of kindness, hospitality and for being a wonderful cook. Angie enjoyed playing cards, dancing and playing bingo.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the staff at Community Memorial Hospital, Menomonee Falls, for the loving care of their mother.
