(nee DeBernardo)

September 3, 1943 - April 27, 2015


Angie was born in Drumheller, Alberta, resided in Calgary, Alberta for several years and then moved to Kamloops, British Columbia in 1969 after her marriage to Bill.  She moved to Dawson Creek in March 2015 to spend time with her family while she could. As she loved food and people, Angie worked in the food industry most of her life.  She made many good friends along the way, working at The Bay and Thompson River University in the food department. Angie’s favorite pastime was gambling, she loved cards, slots and Lady Luck.  Often she would go on gambling trips and spend many hours with her friends at the Casino.  Her smiling face and witty sense of humor was always a welcome sight. In February 2014 Angie was elated when she became a great-grandma; her face would light up whenever her great-granddaughter would visit.  She loved family, laughter and life. Angie was predeceased by her parents; Herman and Marie DeBernardo and grandparents; Roger and Denise Ragon. Angie is survived by her loving husband, Bill, daughter; Melody (Spike), grandchildren; Vanessa (Kelly), Kamen (Jessie), VeraRay (Andrew), Katie (Darryl), great-granddaughter, Kinsley; her loyal little dog; Benny, several relatives and many good friends. Angie’s family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the Kamloops and Dawson Creek medical staff who cared for Angie as well as to friends and family for their support, prayers and well wishes. Angie passed away on Monday, April 27, 2015 in Dawson Creek at the age of 71 years with her family by her side. With respect to Angie’s wishes, no formal funeral service will be held.  For friends so wishing, donations may be made in memory of Angie to the local SPCA, as she loved animals. Very Respectfully Reynars Funeral Home & Crematorium.
