Prayers tomAngelas family. I was in the class of 1965. She was a really good person & will be missed.

Positive thoughts and prayers for Angie's family and friends. Through work I had many contacts with Angie in the late 1980's through the early 2000's. Regardless what we were working on she was always up beat with a "how do we fix it" attitude. Subsequently, I looked forward to seeing her volunteer at the registration desk for the Ohio Oil and Gas Winter Meeting. She would come from behind the registration desk and give me a big hug.

My name is Natalie McClelland, and I'm a member of the Buckeye Desk and Derrick Club in Findlay, Ohio. I was introduced to Angela many years ago at a D&D function, and I grew to know (and like!) her more with each passing year. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face, humor in her heart and a positive attitude despite numerous health issues. As one of her club member's said, "Angela was a friend and mentor to EVERYONE she met". She will truly be missed! Rest in peace, Angela.

You will be missed Angie, I very much enjoyed our conversation that we had in December. Thank you for loving my girls for the years I was a member of your family, they loved you very much. I'll be thinking of the family and my prayers are with them. I love you, R.I.H

As like Angie, I too was in the Land Administration “biz”. Our dear shared friend, Sam Beck, was always telling me “If you ever want to know or learn anything in life, Angie Howard is your girl!” I was so excited several years ago to finally meet Angie at a D&D meeting. She definitely upheld Sam’s image of her and always made me feel welcome and I especially enjoyed our email chats. May Gods grace lay his hands upon all of her friends and family this week and whenever she’s thought of. Angie was a beautiful lady that will dearly be missed!

Very sad to learn of Angie passing. Remember when we worked together at Montgomery Wards in the plaza in the credit dept. Had so much fun together. Remember the time when we gift wrapped a freezer and a range for someone for Christmas. We laughed so hard, we cried!! She was a wonderful person. You all have my deepest sympathy.
