She graduated from high school in Warburg and then went to work in Thorsby at the hotel restaurant. She met her future husband Bob there, who was working at the local Beaver Lumber store. Angie later moved to Edmonton to live with her sister Wanda in a basement suite. At that time she had a job with a nearby wholesale company called Merco. She married Bob October 7, 1967 and they moved to Ponoka where Bob was working at the Beaver Lumber store. Angie moved with her husband to several locations as he was transferred a lot. The trail was as follows: Ponoka 1967-68, Marwayne 1968-71, Redwater 1971-74, Provost 1974-76, Spruce Grove 1976-81 and finally to buy the Beaver Lumber franchise in Lacombe in 1981. While in these towns Angie would always find a job at various banks, Alberta Hospital in Ponoka, Commerce Bank in Red Deer, doctors clinic in Ponoka, AFSC in Lacombe and part time in records at the Ponoka General hospital and the Lacombe hospital until her disease would no longer let her work. Angie loved gardening, shopping, camping, dancing, cards ,traveling, animals and most of all people. There was always room in her heart for another friend.
