My heart and prayers go out to your family. Angie was pure light and joy. I loved her laugh and that twinkle in her eyes. She has been my hair dresser and friend for almost 22 years, and we’ve shared so much together. Overall, her greatest love has always been for her family. She loved all of you with her whole heart and no doubt that you felt it every day. I know that will always be with you and bring you comfort. Prayers will continue for all of you! I know Angie’s light will always shine through you all.

Our deepest sympathy to Norm and the family. Angie was one of a kind and will be missed so very much. She kept my hair looking its very best, and brought a smile to my face for 20+ years. I am out of town and unable to be at Angie’s memorial today but please know my thoughts and love are with all of you today.
Rest In Peace my friend.

Ang and Norm have been family friends for as long as I can remember. Ang did my hair for over a decade when I lived in SC. Besides doing amazing hair, our conversations and laughs are some of my favorite memories. Ang loved her family to the core of her soul. They were her everything. 
There is now a void where love once stood and we will all miss her deeply.
Peace, grace, love to all that knew her.
Heather and Michael Ferguson
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Ang, Angie, LEGS. Just a few of the names for this adorably loving sweet soul. I met Angie at my sisters bible study group in 2000-ish. A hit from the start. She would wear that ADORABLE fleecy sweat suit back then. So cuddley. She said the boys would make fun of her for wearing it all the time. And so it began. A true friendship. A love for each other. A God-sent special gift. That's Ang.
She and I were born 5 days apart, she being the OLDEST. Hehehe. Sister-like twins born apart, but  we came together 20 years ago.
Getting to know Angie meant you got to know her family. Whether you wanted to or not. That's what she talked about all the time. Her boys. Her Norm.  Her sweet parents, as she called them. Her sister and the rest of that extended family from Up There... Her family was her world. Her focus.  Her love. Getting to know Norm and seeing the boys grow up to be such wonderful, loving men has been a blessing. And Norm is a true and dear friend that Sam and I love.
Angies love came through in everything she did. She was relentless in helping everyone, all the time. She was always available. God's love shown through this incredible woman in all her actions. She was so devoted to that family of hers.
Angie, we will all miss you deeply. But, knowing you are at peace, whole, and wearing those wings you earned here on earth gives us some peace. You left your mark on this world and made it a better place by being in it. May we all strive to be as loving, sincere, funny and caring as your example. 
Rest in peace my dear friend. One day we shall all meet again.  Until then, the whole you have left in our hearts is filled with your loving memories.

Angie was my sister from another mister. So many fond memories of my beautiful funny sense of humor friend. Having long hair I was always asked when she could cut it off. I grew up with her and Norm since we were in our terrible teens. Such a wonderful couple and awesome parents. One particular memory I have is when I came home from a trip to northern Wisconsin. I was looking for my two good friends Norm and Jeff so we could hang out only to learn they went to a concert. Lucky me to get to instead hang out with Angie and our other friend Deby. Boy I felt like a king being seen with two beautiful girls like them. Angie. We will miss your physical presence immensely, but you will always live on through love and fond memories. We never truly perish. Our bodies are just a host for our souls and yours moved on to the next adventure. We cry for the loss, but smile for the time we shared with you. Thank you for being a part of my life little sister. I love you.

Angie left a story wherever she went.  I'm so glad she was a part of mine.  She just didn't cut my hair since Alex was so young, he would complain about being asked to sweep up around her chair.  When cancer came to visit my life, Angie graciously went wig shopping to help me pick out something that would make me feel beautiful.  She helped me with my head shaving "ceremony".  Her kindness extended outside the salon, too.  Once when I was sharing my "woes" on social media about being stranded with a flat come's Angie with Norm, the Calvary to the rescue!  Norm, Nathan, and Alex your life will be different no doubt.  Empty.  But so very full of all the years and love she poured into each of you.  When you feel lost, her words circling in your heart and mind will point the way.  You continue to be in my prayers in the days and weeks ahead.

2020 has taken so much, but this loss was unimaginable in so many ways. Ang - your house was the one we all begged to visit to play board games (remember the ice storm!), you were the queen of those. You made the BEST taco dip and always left half of the dish without olives just for me. You kept my hair looking amazing for all of my insecure and awkward middle/high school years. Our family beach trips are some of my favorite lifelong memories. You, along with Norm, have raised two amazing sons who were your world and you were SO proud of (and still are). I am lucky to count them as friends/brothers because of you. You loved decorating for the holidays (including festive accessories for the cat lol), country concerts, and time spent with dear friends/family. You collected snowmen and pandas, so as part of my Operation Christmas Child box I am sending in your honor I had to get some items to reflect that. You always joked about how I owned 100 dresses, and I plan to wear a purple one on Saturday for you. Thank you for your loving spirit and giving heart, you always had a smile and were full of light and laughter. Also thanks for not disowning me the time I broke the blinds at your house with a nerf gun or when I hid Nathan’s stuffed dog for weeks in the battleship box . You moved down the street from us as neighbors and turned into family. I count myself as blessed having had you in my life since childhood. We find peace knowing your faith in Jesus has you in Heaven pain free and with your Dad and others again. You’ll forever be our angel . My prayers are with you especially Norm, Al, Na and the rest of the family. -Hannah Esposito

One of my early memories of Ang was when we were in cosmology school together. She asked if I would be her model for her state boards. “Sure”I said, this would also give me an insight on what I may have to do. She said “you can help me study” ( we have to know all those muscles and nerves in the face and skull). We clicked right off from the start, after all who would not. Ang is a person that you can’t help to love. Well I had long hair when we began all of the practice haircuts and by the time we went to go to her state boards it was a short “pixie cut”. Haha, I was good after all it is just hair. I had to sit in the chair as she had to place her hands on the muscle or nerve s that the instructor called out. I could always give her a wink or move my lip or eye to help. We had a blast as always. I have so many great memories over our many years of friendship to cherish. Ang has left a big hole in everyone’s heart right now. Love you forever and a day, I will miss you my dear sweet friend.
