Angelita had to grow up fast. She stopped going to school in the sixth grade and began helping support her family.

Angie finally retired after 10 years at Whithorne Junior High as the lunch lady where she endeared herself to the many students over the years.
Angie was a loving mother with a free spirit. Someone that embraced the good things and wasn’t afraid to give loving advice. She loved music of every kind and loved to dance. She had a kindness that she always readily shared which is one of the things that made her such a wonderful mother and endeared her to so many students. She was outspoken and had a quick wit with a wonderful sense of humor. She had fierce loyalty to family and friends.
