Angela Kelly Yoakum Harrison Obituary
Angela Kelly Yoakum Harrison, 44, of Lamesa left this world to be with her beloved Lord and Savior on Saturday, Aug. 30, 2014. Funeral: 10 a.m. Tuesday, First Baptist Church, Lamesa, with Bro. Jim Medley and Bro. Gerald Bastin officiating. Interment: Evergreen Cemetery in Stanton under the direction of Branon Funeral Home. Visitation: 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, First Baptist Church. Memorials: The family suggests memorials to Ally's Wish or Angie Harrison Memorial Scholarship in care of O'Donnell ISD. Angie was born on Sept. 13, 1969, in Fort Worth at Harris Hospital. Angie was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in 2009 and diligently followed treatment for the following five years. Angie will be remembered with love by many, many friends, neighbors, fellow teachers, students, parents of students, dear church friends and, of course, her family and extended family. Those that were blessed to know Angie will remember her life as one of giving, caring and loving. They will say they never knew a kinder, more loving and considerate Christian, parent or friend. From her graduation from Tarleton in 1999, Angie found her life's calling by diligently leading, teaching and inspiring school children and their parents to better lives. Angie will also be remembered, especially by those who were blessed to know her for many years, as having a rich sense of humor. She loved to laugh and readily shared laughter with everyone. She possessed a withering wit, which she wisely used carefully so never to offend, but she loved a good belly laugh and was happiest when there was lots of laughter. Most of all, Angie was an ardent Christian believer and faithful follower of our Lord. She carefully studied scripture over the years and was continually seeking the wisdom and inspiration of the Lord. She dearly loved her church, her family, friends and students. Those who were blessed to know her were fortunate and better for it. She showed us all how to love and live and survive with faith to the end of her life. Angie was preceded in death by her grandparents, Nadine and Alvin Wright, and Joe B. Yoakum.
