She loved people. She was a social butterfly and loved sharing stories and memories with her many friends over coffee and kolache or poppyseed loaf (her specialties). She enjoyed singing, tending her garden, and crocheting.
A devoted Jehovah’s Witness, she spent many hours sharing her love of the Bible with people she met.
Angie was predeceased by her husband Henry Schildwachter (November 2022), her parents, Mary and Jozeph; siblings, Joe, Mary, Josephine, and Victor.
Angie leaves behind her loving daughter Shirley Redford (Roger), four granddaughters, Susanne (Richard Clark), Kathleen (Greg Royer), Mandy (Wayne Maskewich), and Glenda (Darrell Groeneveld); ten great-grandchildren, and eleven great-great-grandchildren. Angie is also survived by her brother John and many nieces and nephews.
