Evangelina “Angie” Rivera LeClere, 58, of San Angelo passed away at Baylor Scott and White Medical Center in McKinney, Texas on Tuesday, April 21, 2020. She was born on May 11, 1961 in Colorado City, Texas to Jose de la Luz and Gregoria Franco Rivera Angie grew up in the Colorado City area, where she learned the core values of being the best woman she could be. She learned about the importance of God, Family, and working hard for what she had. Angie was world-renowned for her lack of patience, not holding back her opinion and a knack for telling it like it is. She always told you the truth even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. It was the school of hard knocks and yes we were told many times to suck it up. With that said she was genuine to a fault, a teddy bear at heart (or lion) and yet she sugar coated nothing. Everyone always knew where you stood with her. She liked you or she didn’t, it was black or white. As her children, there were times of both but we always felt her unwavering love. She was a free-spirited person with love and passion for her family especially her grandchildren, all which held a special place in her heart. She spent many years of her life working as a waitress, and many would remember seeing her serving them with a warm smile along with a warm plate at BoBo’s Kitchen in San Angelo. When she wasn’t working Angie could be seen spending time cooking, barbequing, or enjoying precious time with her family. Her honest, hard-loving, free-spirit, and warm smile will be remembered fondly and cherished for many years to come. She is survived by her mother Gregoria Rivera of Colorado City, by her sons Jeremiah Rivera and wife Amanda with children Darius, Alyssa, and Ella of Princeton, Brian Rivera and wife Anathea and children Skylar, Miaka, Bella, and Hadrien of Derby Kansas, Jason LeClere and wife Heather with children Cameron and Noah of San Angelo, and by a daughter Roxie Whigham and husband Corey with children Kirsten, Nate, Kayla, and Nolan of San Angelo. She is also survived by her 4 brothers Joe Rivera and wife Emily of San Antonio, Sebastian David Rivera and wife Yolanda of Snyder, Samuel Rivera and wife Margaret of Colorado City, and Jaime Rivera and wife Ashlea of Corpus Christi, as well as by 8 sisters Sylvia Mendoza and husband Jimmy of Colorado City, Ginny Rivera and husband Freddie of Colorado City, Delia Rivera and husband Felipe of Colorado City, Audy Martinez and husband Raymond of Colorado City, Gloria Rivera of Colorado City, Melisa Garcia and husband Sam of Abilene, Beatrice Monroe and husband Mark of Colorado City, and Barbara Filoteo and husband Chris of Edinburg. Several nieces, nephews, and dear friends also survive. She was preceded in death by her first husband John LeClere,, her second husband Roy DelREal, by her father Jose Rivera, and by her brother Daniel Light Rivera In complying with the current gathering orders for the state of Texas it is requested that everyone recite the rosary at home for Angie.

My Sweet beautiful sister..I dont know how to go on with life without you in it. Im going to hold on to the precious memories. There were so many. I love that we always told each other " I love you" when we said bye. One I will never forget is when we were walking downtown in front of "Anthonys" and you spotted Jimmy Forbes car. You told me to get in the back seat floorboard and stay quiet. I must have bern about 13 years old. We hid on the floorboard and Jimmy and Tiny Green got in the car and took off. You waited until Jimmy drove about 4 blocks before you tapped him on the shoulder and hollered at him. Lets just say....I WILL NEVER FORGET THE LOOK ON THEIR FACE! FLY HIGH SISTER...I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN ...MISSING YOU TERRIBLY! ......LALA💓

My Sweet, Adventurous, CRAZY Sister!! I will never forget you!!! You lived Life to the fullest. You had a fun silly side and a serious tough love side too. Family was the most important to you! You loved making us laugh, you found happiness in seeing others happy even thou you were hurting inside and we didn't know it. You always made a point to tell not only me, but my family that you loved us. And, every time we saw you, no matter if you had a bad day, or if you were busy at work, or with your family, you always had a genuine smile when you seen us because you were truly happy to see us! I will never ever forget that you were the 1st person that knew about Mark and I, you even let us borrow your blazer to go riding around. I loved that every time my kids had a game in San Angelo, you would be there cheering loud and proud. I will miss your wet kisses on my cheeks but you always made sure you pinched them 1st!! OH MY GOODNESS! We will miss you and not a day will go by that I won't think of you! They say time will heal, but it won't ever change the way I feel. It's so hard to be without you. I will try to make you proud. To be like you.... Forgive often, love with all your heart, and enjoy life everyday! Until we meet again! Always and forever! Beezy Weezy. Your lil sis

Oh Angie!! Every time you were around, we knew it was going to be a fun time and at the same time, a little concerned. You always wanted to make the best of all situations without judgment, and did what you wanted to do no matter what anyone thought. Always laughing, and made sure you did give us a hug and told us you loved us before leaving. My best memories with you is the San Antonio trip we took for Mom’s birthday. 9 of us piled up in my minivan and stayed in 1 hotel room for a weekend of fun memories! And of course, me, Angie, and Delia had to go find a club to have a few extra drinks and some dancing. Another fond memory is when Darius made it to state in powerlifting and the meet was held in Abilene. Sam and I invited the family to our house for BBQ to celebrate Darius 1st place win. What a evening! Having Angie, her kids, grandkids, and other family, was an honor and a great time together with awesome people! And I will forever be thankful for her telling me about DPS hiring. If it wasn’t for her going to get her license, I probably wouldn’t have this great career with DPS. Thank you Angie for being you, having an humongous generous heart, and loving all of us unconditionally!! I will miss ya big time sis!!! Love ya!

Everytime we got together, it started with a Big Smile, a Bear Hug, then lots of laughs and ended just as it started. I always felt happier afterwards! I will miss her dearly!
