Angela is a soul gone too soon and will be missed dearly by all who knew and loved her.

Angela was a registered nurse and she loved caring for others. She always said it’s what she was meant to do. Angela studied nursing at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, Florida. Angela worked in critical care, hospice, flight nursing, trauma, and so much more. She was even looking forward to potentially teaching others in her field. She enjoyed traveling, lived in Melbourne, Australia for a time. She loved music, even started learning guitar from her daughter. She also has such an eye for art and loved painting herself. More than anything Angela was an amazing Mother and Grandmother, she adored her daughter and grandchildren. 

Angela’s favorite quote was “One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying”
