Durapau, her high school sweetheart in 1986. The couple welcomed 5 daughters into their home and set about teaching them how to love deeply and instilled the value of a greater faith in Jesus. Her children remember her as a devoted mother and nanna who encouraged them to pursue their goals. Angie was a thoughtful, compassionate, caring person who loved unconditionally.
She unselfishly gave her time, talents and wisdom to anyone in need. She has touched the lives of many across the world. She was a hard worker that never stopped. She was such an amazing giver of advice and like no one in this world – truly unique – one of a kind. She supported her girls in every major event and was there to cheer them on. She knew their potential and pushed them to do their very best in all that they did.
