SAN ANGELO Angie Wilkosz, 86, passed away Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014, at her home. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses located at 2021 Pulliam St. Arrangements are by Shaffer Funeral Home/Sherwood Way. Angie was born July 31, 1927, in Kansas. She was the last of seven children born to Italian immigrants, Joseph and Caroline Torchia. After graduation from high school, she moved to Melrose Park, Ill., to get a job. She soon got work for the Homelight Corporation where she served as secretary. Angie liked to bowl and it was at a bowling alley that she met her husband of 63 years, Otto Wilkosz. Angie and Otto had two children, both boys, and she is survived by her eldest son, Steven Wilkosz of San Angelo. Her youngest son, Gregory, preceded her in death in the early 1970's. She is also survived by her dear husband, Otto; grandchildren Jeremy Wilkosz of Salinas, Calif., and Andrea Wilkosz of Carmel, Calif.; and great-grandchildren Aisley of Pacific Grove, Calif., and Caiden of Carmel, Calif. For nearly 60 years of her life she proclaimed her deep love for God's name, Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) and the Kingdom that's been put in the hands of God's son, Jesus Christ (Matthew 6:9, 10). She truly appreciated the ransom sacrifice (John 3:16). Much like Tabitha (Acts 9:36-42), Angie is also dearly remembered for her generous hospitality. Because of her deep faith in God and the promise of a resurrection from the dead, she displayed courage and dignity to the very end (Luke 23:43 and John 5: 28,29).
