She departed this earthly life on November 13, 2020 at 6:15 a.m. at her home in the presence of her husband and daughter Deanna. She accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized under the pastorship of the late Dr. W.R.

Angela married the love of her life Arthur L. Smith, Sr, in May 1960. From this union 11 children were conceived. Angela was very active in serving the Lord in her church and community.

She was the social chairperson for Circle Love for many years and served on several awards committees for Women’s Day. She helped with Girl Scouts and Brownies troop functions. She formed the “Dinner Crew,” in which women from different churches in the community meet at various restaurants on a monthly basis to eat, fellowship, and celebrate birthdays. She was a member of “Our Gang” which started out as a group of young people whose parents kept them engaged in various activities at church, such as Bible Study and BTU. The relationships that formed from this group lasted a life time. They never lost touch with one another. This group was very special to her, and she considered its members her very own brothers and sisters. The members who are still among us are Rev. W.R. Brown, Jr., Lee Moss, James Moss, Albert (Bibbie) Madison, Patricia Shingleton, Annetta Sanders, and others who we might not be aware of. Her favorite scripture was Psalm 23.
