Angela Malpass

Angela Malpass, beloved by her family and friends, died from cancer on April 17th, 2020 in her home in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan at the age of 84. She married Ted in June 1990 and was devoted to him until his death in April 2016. She will be interred with Ted later in the year at the Great Lakes National Cemetery.

Angela was born in Japan on August 31, 1935 at the Kyoto University Hospital. At a young age, she lived in the Philippines, and then went to a Catholic Girls School in Japan. She attended college in the U.S. Throughout her life, Angela was a natural teacher of languages, history, and reading adding to all our lives.

A woman of many talents, Angela spoke several languages, was an avid reader, an outstanding cook, could finish the New York Times cross-word puzzle, and was a lifelong athlete. Angela loved to windsurf with Ted on the big waves in Hawaii, Cape Hatteras and South Padre Island, played ferocious tennis (with the men) a few times a week, was a highly desirable house guest and kept long friendships. She was a natural teacher of everything from learning foreign languages to cooking. She sent books to her grandchildren on their birthdays, sent care packages to their dormitories, and always remembered birthdays with a card. Angela was a remarkable woman who will be remembered fondly by all her knew her. In lieu of flowers, please contact the Great Lakes National Cemetery regarding donations.

We meant Ted and Angela in 2011, and they became part of our family. She always remembered our child at Christmas, and on their birthday with a book. Not to mention a basket full of candy on Easter. She was always up to go to the kid's events, such as baseball and soccer games, piano recital, ballet, and swimming meets.
We will miss not having her company for thanksgiving and Christmas eve dinner and the occasional breakfast after mass on Sunday with the kid and me. The kids will miss the books she would give them. As my daughter Livia said, Angela always knew the right book to give her. I will also miss the joy of sitting and talking with her.
She was just a person that you could talk to her about and thing and always listened to what you had to say. She treated our family very well, and we will always have fond memories of her.

Frank, Xuehong, Livia, and Francis

I've known Angela since I was 9 I'm 41 now. When my parents moved back to Japan Angela and Ted looked after me as if I was their child. When I think about her I can still hear her voice. She was truly a wonderful person She will be missed.

Angela and Ted will always have a special place in our hearts. They came to Corpus Christi to windsurf and be our guest in our home for years. We always looked forward to having them. They gave us a plaque that said HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS They brought so much joy to our home and family.

We have known Angela for many decades. We met at Tennis and became friends instantly. We celebrated holidays together. We loved Angela's cooking. She gave me so many helpful hints which always remind me of her. Once Angela and Ted got married, she had to learn to windsurf. She caught on so fast like a fish to water. A natural athlete!
I have so many fond memories of our time together.

Angela was truly a kind and self-effacing, brilliant, complex and lovely human being. Her depth, something most never attain. My family and I were very fortunate to know both Ted and Angela. They broadened one's horizons with their friendship. Mary McIntosh
