Together they established a loving home and raised a family in Williamston, NC. Angie worked at Roanoke Chevrolet Company prior to joining Martin County Schools and working for 24 years as the district’s Payroll Supervisor. She was a faithful member of Reddicks Grove Baptist Church where she served in many roles, including Sunday School teacher, President of the Genesis Circle, and member of several church committees. Angie was a devoted mother and wife, dedicating steadfast and unwavering care for her family. Her greatest joy was derived from the time she spent with them. She especially enjoyed spending time with her granddaughter, Rebecca, sharing special and similar interests together in baking, sewing, and family vacations.    

In addition to her parents, Angie was preceded in death by her husband Stancil on March 1, 2013 as well as many dear cousins, aunts, and uncles.
