Angelina (Wilson) McCormick Obituary
Angelina Wilson McCormick was born on February 8, 1916 and raised on a farm in Towlesville, N.Y. by her parents Katherine and Levi Wilson.

She was one of six children. Angie completed 2 years of high school in Avoca, N.Y.

She knew that she wanted to be a nurse, and began her training at the Davenport Hospital in Bath, N.Y in 1932.

She then worked at the Tuberculosis Sanitarium in Bath. She married Robert McCormick in 1936 and gave birth to her only child, Charles, in 1937.

Angie opened her first convalescent home for bed-ridden seniors while Bob was abroad during World War II.

Bob returned from four years of service in the Army and completed a degree at the Rochester Institute of Technology. He then went to work with the Corning Leader as the Circulation Manager where he eventually became the Publisher. Angie earned a Nurse/Teacher degree at Syracuse University, and took a position as a School Nurse Teacher in the Prattsburg Central School District in 1953.

She often reminisced that many of her nieces and nephews were students at the time and as a result, everyone in the school called her Auntie Ange.

She retired in 1976. When Bob retired from the Corning Leader in 1982, they moved to a Florida.

In 1992, they returned to Bath and lived on Juniper Street. Bob passed away in 2001.

Angie lived in Bath until 2009 when she moved to Long Island to the Atria Assisted Living Community enabling her to be close to her immediate family.

She resided in the Atria until she passed away on March 1, 2014.

Angie recently celebrated her 98th birthday with her son, daughter-in-law, grandchildren and three of her very special nieces.
Angie was a wonderful mother, aunt, grandmother, mother-in-law, and friend to all. She was beloved by everyone. She embraced everyone she knew with love without judgment or criticism, a rare quality in anyone.

She was, as we liked to say, as sharp as a tack until the day she died. Angie was religious and often expressed that she was ready to pass on to reside with her maker and her loved ones that have already passed.

But, in our love for her, we would not have let her go if it was in our power to do so. She leaves us with wonderful memories and hearts full of love.

Angie will be buried at the Bath National Cemetery with her husband, Bob on April 14, 2014 at 11:00 am.

There will be a graveside ceremony.

All arrangements have been made by Fagan's Funeral Home in Bath, NY. Charles & Susan McCormick will be in attendance as will other family members. Online condolences may be made at www.fagansfuneralhome.com.
