Ann Marie Angelus Obituary
Ann Marie Angelus

AGE: 79 • Tuckerton

Ann Marie (Keefer) Angelus, 79, peacefully passed away at home on May 31, 2017, after a long illness. She was born and raised in Newark, NJ along with her brothers and sister by their mother. She met the love of her life James Nicholas Angelus as a young independent working woman in the late 1960's. Their love affair culminated in their marriage, and produced two sons, Ronald James and Michael James. After the boys were born, Jim relocated them to Tuckerton, NJ in 1972 to live a more quiet life away from the city. Unfortunately, Jim passed away in 1980 leaving Ann to raise their sons alone. She bore the role of both mother and father, giving her sons a loving heart and a guiding example that has remained with them to this day. She went to work for the Tuckerton School District as a Baker/Cook when her children were young, and later worked 21 years for the Tuckerton Water and Sewer Authority. Upon her retirement in 2007, she was able to enjoy many days spent with her friends and church ladies going to lunch, seeing shows and taking trips to Lancaster. She had many great times with the "WOWs" and "Lunch Bunch." Ann was a doting Nana to her granddaughters Christina and Victoria. She gushed over them and was immensely proud of every accomplishment. They were her reason for living. Although she is gone from this world, we will all feel her presence with us for the rest of our days. Ann is survived by her sons, granddaughters, Michael's girlfriend Theresa and her daughter Audrey, whom she loved as her own, best friend of over 40 years Sheila Prince, sister in law Helen Keefer, who was much more than that to her, niece and nephew Lynn Vogel and Wesley Keefer, who affectionately called her Aunt Judy. She is predeceased by her mother, Sophia, Brothers Wesley, Bobby and Ronald and sister, Elaine. Services will be, Friday, June 9th from 7-9 pm at Wood Funeral Home, 134 E Main Street, Tuckerton. Saturday, June 10th at 10 am at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 500 Mathistown Rd, Tuckerton with burial to follow at Greenwood Cemetery, N. Green Street. Donations may be made to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Ann's name in lieu of flowers. For condolences and more information visit
