I will miss Angie very much. We had fun at Jazzercise together whether we dancing or wise cracking with each other. She was feisty but had a heart of gold. May God rest her soul and she know that I cherished our friendship.

I LOVED THIS WOMAN...and she knew it! Im so sad I never got to say 'so long". We met thru line dancing, where every time I saw her...Angie ALWAYS had a smile and hug for me! It was great to watch her move when one of her favorite song/dances came on. She was a beautiful face with a tough exterior, but she had a very sensitive side. She called a spade a spade- as she saw it. If you were on her "s" list - you knew it, but she aways hurt about it- even as she held the grudge forever. Angie put herself out there. I loved that about her. Angie is a peace now, no longer hurting, tired or searching for the perfect man...I know she's up there looking for Mr Right and making room on the dance floor for friends like me. My condolences to her family- who she adored and all her friends who mourn the loss of a friend taken too soon. 💔

I met Angie through line dancing. We shared stories & laughter and travel where she introduced me to her best Friend David Larsen. I will always be grateful for that honor and fun time dancing in Florida. Rest in Peace dear friend.

I was saddened to hear of the loss of my friend Angie. We met at Pickleball two years ago and became fast friends. We continued our friendship through our exercise classes and outdoor music events. I will forever remember her smile and warmth.
