Angela lived for those she loved and those she loved will always remember her.
Angela was amazingly brave. Somehow she found the courage to face her terrible illness head-on, undergoing ground-breaking surgery and painful treatments to ensure that her life could be lived to the full, for as long as it was possible.
'The real focus of Angela's life was always our beloved children Oscar and Milli' said her husband Barney, 'Her dearest desire was to offer them support, guidance and love as they grew and developed. The secure foundations she created, based on unquestioning love, will be in our hearts forever.'
'The medical profession always worked to prolong Angela's life, with a dedication that gave us both great faith and belief in the future. I look back now and thank all the doctors, nurses and health care professionals for giving my family 10 extra years with Angela'.
It was in the world of education that Angela found her calling, specialising in the teaching of Religious Education. She believed that to guide children as they grow into adulthood was a privilege and an honour. It was this passion, and the skill of her teaching, that the children loved. Hardly surprising then that so many of the children here at The Croft Preparatory School wanted to help raise funds in her memory.
The children in the photograph were especially keen to raise money for Cancer Research, and they did so with great initiative and enthusiasm at the School's designated Croft Charity Days, raising a fantastic total of £1,846.50.
Angela died peacefully at home, with her beloved family beside her, aged 41 years.
