Angie was born in Medford on July 5, 1969. She attended and graduated from Abbotsford High School. She lived a special life with many challenges; however, they never stopped her from being feisty and positive. Once she made up her mind, nothing could stop her.

She always had the support, love, and care from her family and friends. She had many accomplishments and became a role model to many that knew her. Throughout Angela’s life, she made friends wherever she went.

Angie was an avid Brewer and Packer fan. She enjoyed activities including bowling, art, music, watching movies, and researching mythology.

She is also survived by special family members: Michael and Sally Shoemaker, Matt (Tamara) Shoemaker, Abbey (Solen) Richberger, Helen Shoemaker and their families.

Angela was preceded in death by her stepfather, Pat Canfield; grandparents, Joseph and Doris Szutkowski of Bowler and Archie and Elaine Melvin of Abbotsford, as well as uncles: Duane Umlauft, Randy Carley, Richard Onesti and Joseph Szutkowski.
