After living many years on the family farm south of Raleigh, ND, Emil and Angie moved their family of ten to Tacoma, WA in 1966. Angie made the endless task of raising eight children seem effortless. She enjoyed cooking, gardening and working outside, quilting, dancing, and spending time with family and friends. She was a devout Catholic and served on the St. Martin of Tours Altar Society and was a member of the Quilting Club. Angie had a rewarding career working for Marblique (10 yrs) and The Boeing Company (20 yrs).
