ANGELL Evelyn Angell left this life March 22, 2011 to join her Saviour, Jesus Christ. Born Evelyn Helene to Louise and Bill Biebel on April 27, 1924 in Bridgeport, she had one older sister, who preceded her in death, Katherine Biebel Broatch. Evie met and married Bill Angell and settled in Fairfield, Ct. where they raised four children. She attended St. John's Episcopal Church in Bridgeport for more than 70 years. The Angells' lakeside home was the gathering place for friends and family. In 2001, they moved to Las Cruces, NM and settled in Trails West where they made many new friends. Evie was a woman of great faith whose strength was an inspiration to many. She was an advocate and care giver to the unfortunate, forgotten, and those in pain. Throughout her entire full and vibrant life, she shared her love of the Arts, nature, and family with others. Her actions and words expressed her deep values: consideration for the Earth and all of God's children and creatures. Her spirit will be carried in the hearts of many who knew her, including sons, David, Tom, and Curt, and daughter Pamela; daughters-in-law Rebecca and Mary Lou; grandsons Cory and Max; granddaughters, Katelyn, Kerri and Kylie; nieces and nephews Bobby, Jimmy, Jackie, Kathy, Rachel and their families; and many new and lifelong friends in various parts of the country. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be sent to the Britton John Broatch Foundation, P.O. Box 8, Milford, CT 06460. A funeral service will be held at 11:30 am Sat. April 16th at Peace Lutheran Church in Las Cruces. A Celebration of her Life will take place at 5:30 pm on Sun. April 17th at the Trails West Community Center in Las Cruces.
