Obituary for Mrs. Angela Lynn Nevill
Sunday our Father took another beautiful angel. Angela Lynn Nevill, 46, passed away November 20th, 2016 at Alive Hospice. Angie was diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer just over four years ago. She was one of the strongest and most determined women, she fought so hard to win this evil battle against her body.

After earning her LPN license, Angie worked in the healthcare field for most of her adult life, she touched so many lives while working with the Home Instead group, many of the clients asking for her by name. Angie loved her children and being a mom, making sure that their needs came before hers, her passion in life was reading, you could always find her with a good book in her hand, those books kept her company through all of her hospital stays and chemo treatments. She had a love for knowledge, always learning and passing her love of knowledge to her children.
Throughout her battle she still had the spirit to laugh, and what a wonderful laugh she had, it was infectious and contagious!
Angie is loved by so many family and friends and our hearts are broken but she is with our Father, in her Heavenly Home, at peace and free from the physical pain she has endured for far too long.
