For many years, Angela was very instrumental in running the family cheese business with her husband. Faith and family were the most important parts of her life. She was a member of the Blue Army and made countless weekly trips to Champion to pray the rosary.
Angela loved gardening and was a wonderful cook who always believed “you don’t have to be hungry to eat”. She cherished her grandchildren and always looked forward to anytime spent with her family.
