After a year-long battle with cancer, Angela “Angie” Marie Callahan passed away on November 29, 2018 at her home in Woodbury, surrounded by her loving family. Angie was born September 23, 1961 in Osceola, Iowa to Paul & Pauline (Gavle) Callahan. She grew up in Fort Dodge, Iowa; attended St. Edmond High School and the University of South Dakota, and completed her undergraduate degree at Iowa State University. Angie then obtained her Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology from University of Wisconsin at Whitewater.

Angie spent her early adult life raising four wonderful children who benefited from her kind and caring ways. She was the rock for her family and her love, support, and amazing parenting skills allowed her husband Todd to flourish; together they were the ultimate team. Angie was an extraordinary listener, and her kind, loving heart provided comfort and support to everyone who knew her. She loved to read books, cheer on her children, and eat dinner together with Todd and her kids. Her favorite place was her parents’ cabin in Wisconsin where she loved watching her children and nieces and nephews water ski, roast s’mores and listen to stories from their grandparents. Simply put, Angie’s life was all about family. She lived in close proximity to her siblings and found joy in spending her adult life involved with siblings, nieces, nephews, and parents, along with her children and husband. She worked at Pullman Elementary School as a Speech Language Pathologist in St. Paul Park.

Angie had so much to look forward to, with her children entering adulthood. She was eagerly anticipating the arrival of her first grandchild in February. She would have been the best grandma and everyone will make sure her future grandchildren will know her loving ways.

She is survived by her husband Todd Sexe; four children: Cameron (Kendall), Conrad (Molly Kopp), Morgan Sexe (Alex Blenkush), and Mariah; her parents: Paul & Pauline Callahan, and her three siblings: Matt Callahan, Mitch Callahan, and Molly Callahan Brooke. Funeral services will be held 11 AM Monday, December 3, 2018 at Woodbury United Methodist Church, 7465 Steepleview Road, Woodbury, MN. Visitation will be on Sunday, December 2 from 2-5 PM at the church. A private family burial will be held prior to the service at Woodbury United Methodist Church cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, Angie’s family wishes to honor her love for Pullman by dedicating a memorial to benefit its students and their families. Angie was very passionate about her work at Pullman Elementary School, and she loved working with the staff and serving her students. Pullman Elementary of St. Paul Park is a true neighborhood school, serving many families who struggle financially to provide the essentials to help ensure success. Pullman is committed to building self-esteem, enhancing creativity and individuality, and building a community of life-long learners. Pullman is always looking for financial help to provide its students the needed clothing, supplies, snacks and field trip monies while they are at school. For those who wish to donate, checks can be made to Pullman Elementary School and sent to 8186 Enclave Rd, Woodbury, MN 55125, or be placed in the donation box at the church.

Angie, Todd, Cameron, Morgan, Conrad and Mariah have been a big part of our family's lives for over 20 years since the time we moved into the neighborhood across the backyard from one another. Angie was a wonderful person and special friend, and together with the entire Sexe family made our family and our neighborhood a better place. Forever etched in our memories will be the countless years that we jointly hosted the Marsh Creek Backyard party at the end of the Summer. Angie was always the gracious host, and together with Todd, offered their place to the entire neighborhood to help forge new relationships, build stronger bonds between friends, and show all of the kids a good time. Invariably, Angie was the first one up the next morning to commence with cleanup duties. While some of us were in recovery mode, the clean up was never a drudgery as we fondly recounted the previous day's events while collecting trash and the sandals and shoes that were left behind. Of course, we know Angie's passion was her family, and that her reach extended well beyond our neighborhood and into the lives her students, but it is our close friendship as neighbors that we will always cherish and hold dear in our hearts. We will never forget you Angie. You made all of us, and this place better. Our hearts are broken, but your legacy lives on; we can see it right across the backyard.
