Angie was a unique individual with varied interests. She loved to cook and spent years perfecting her spaghetti "sauce" so that it would taste just like her grandmother's. She was the queen of organizing and it was never more apparent than when she arranged the assembly line for the Thanksgiving ravioli making. Everyone had their assignment and she made sure they did it right! She would have made a great food critic. If you prepared something and Angie raved about it, you knew you had done well!
She was very competitive. She loved to play games and do puzzles. And she made sure the rest of the family got involved. She had a fierce sense of humor and loved to laugh.
Angie was an artist. She was always very critical of her work, but she excelled at everything she put her heart to. She went to upholstery classes and mastered that skill. She also went to St. Elizabeth's Assisted Living and worked with the residents on various arts and crafts projects.
When she was very young she played the cello and attended gymnastics classes. Her gymnastics team was quite competitive and Angie worked tirelessly with the goal of attending a meet. Unfortunately, she never made it to a meet, but that didn't stop her from trying.
Angie loved animals-especially dogs. She showed up on Easter with a very ugly little dog that she had rescued. She named the dog Zucchini and had her for many years. Her house always had animals in attendance-dogs, cats, snakes, turtles and lizards. She made room for all.
In the last four years of her life, she endured a lot of pain. She was not a complainer and many people never knew just how ill she was. More than anything she loved her husband and her children and her big extended family.
A Celebration of Angie's Life will be held at a later date. The family asks that in lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Foothills Animal Shelter.
