To Angie's mother,
With deepest sympathy.
We were friends in middle school at Norwell. Angie was always kind and sweet. I appreciated her parents as teachers. Will never forget. Prayers for peace for the family.

Angie and I worked together 40 years ago in Governor Bayh’s office. In a heady time of high stakes and great dreams, Angie could always be counted on for good humor and a level head. Turned out she also truly cared for her staff friends. Over the years, she popped up whenever we had moments of joy and pain. A lovely life.

Ryan, no words or actions can take away your grief and pain, but please know we are praying each and everyday for you to be comforted through this incredibly difficult time. I will never forget the first time meeting Angie- such a gentle, kind, and graceful presence! She will be greatly missed.

Much love, Bethany (and Adam) Welch

I was blessed to have several classes at Ball State with Angie. I was immediately drawn to her warm smile and kindness. I enjoyed her telling me high school stories about my husband...who was at the time my boyfriend...Scott Tinkel. My condolences to her husband and family. You will all be in my prayers.

Oh my! I am so saddened to hear the news of Angie's passing. She was a wonderful and kind person. We served together in Senator Bayh's office during his first term. I learned so much from her about the State of Indiana. I am so happy I was able to reconnect with her through social media in recent years. I will miss her dearly. CH

I enjoyed going to school with Angie. She never was judgmental of others and always kind to me. Angie never seemed to age. She will be missed.
