I will never forget Angeline. She was the happiest and jolliest lady I knew. I remember I had a "Princess House" party and your mom and Frances came. They found out I had a waterbed and they had never seen one. They got to punching on it and watching it rocking back and forth. I told them to hop on in and in they both went. You could have heard them cackling all the way to the church...they were the "Life of the Party" Your mom will be missed but I know she's happy in Beula Land . Love to all the family

Aunt Angeline was my aunt married to my Mothers Brother. She was indeed the happiest woman I have ever know. She was always smiling & laughing. She was also stylish in her dress & always looked perfectly groomed & beautiful!! I had told her a few years ago that I wanted to give her eulogy , But as our world has changed & with Covid virus around it was impossible. Also I live in Asheville, NC . Aunt Angeline was such an inspiration to me & every one around. I knew her joy was from the Lord and was blessed by that. She has a wonderful family who has cared for her all these years. I pray God’s blessing on them in the days ahead!! I will see you later Aunt Angeline!!!! I loved the picture!!

I have fond memories of Angeline going back to my childhood. Always such a sweet, fun lady to be around. Her laugh was just the best! As I took care of Mom in her last years, she and Oberia were so kind to bring good food when they came to visit. Mom was always so glad to see them, and the food was always so delicious! The Martin sisters really knew how to cook!
What a wonderful lady in so many ways. She will surely be missed. My thoughts to all her family.

Aunt Angeline was the sweetest - funniest person you could ever know. Loved her so much and I can tell you that my Daddy - James Bryant Hensley and I were her BIGGEST fans of her coconut cream pie! No one else could make that pie! She was so loved and will be missed so much and our prayers are with you today as you have have to say good-bye - but there is joy knowing that there is just the biggest and greatest family reunion in heaven right now - I can just feel it. To all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren - you were blessed to have her in your lives.

Mrs Angelina was an angle within her self. Always had beautiful smile on her face. Very soft spoken lady. I will miss stopping by her house to drop off goodies Mrs Louise R Smith would send Mrs Angelina. She will be missed by many people who knew her. Praying for the family. May God be with each family member. Mrs Angelina RIP.
