Angela was a loving, caring and devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister and grand-daughter. She was a friend to many and will be missed by all that knew her. She was always available to listen and share her thoughts in a friendly conversation. She enjoyed cooking, cake decorating, sewing, T-shirt designing, but her greatest joy was spending time with her family. A loyal and dedicated mother of the 4-H programs, she was always willing to assist and help with the children’s show projects.

Angela was originally of the Catholic faith, but was currently an active member of First Baptist Church Haughton. She enjoyed traveling and the many trips taken with Shawn and the boys to Kentucky. One of her most exciting and memorable trips was in 2017 to attend a baseball game of her favorite team, the Chicago Cubs.

She is preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Brad and Lorine Mosley; maternal grandmother, Sarah LoBue Bates; mother-in-law, Evelene Grooms; and aunt, Pat Hemphill.
