Angie was born on June 2, 1970, in Sparta, TN. She enjoyed cooking large dinners for her family and friends. She was always in the kitchen preparing the best food for everyone to enjoy. She loved being outdoors and took every opportunity to be with loved ones. From picnics to road trips, she lived life for her family.
