Angeline was a wonderful homemaker and led a very active life. She enjoyed music and dancing and was very active with her church in various ladies' clubs. Her children considered her a great baker and it was always a race to see who could get to the cookie jar first. Angeline and her husband Lawrence were foster parents to many children, sharing her love and good spirit. In her later years she enjoyed playing cards and games during the many visits she had from family and friends and still found time to crochet.
