At an early age Angela developed a lifelong love of reading. Always seeking out knowledge and encouraging those around her to further their education, follow their dreams, cast out doubt and believe in themselves.

She will always be known for her willingness to lend a helping hand, her infinite strength, loyalty, dedication, but most importantly, her fearlessness.
