OBITUARY

Angela Mary Robel

December 25, 1922July 16, 2020

Angela Mary Robel, 97, passed away July 16, 2020 early in the morning. She has gone to be with her loving husband Lester.

On Christmas Day, 1922, Angela Mary was born to Sandy and Theresa (Schuller) Shelton in the Yakima Valley where she lived her entire life. She was the oldest of seven children, having had four sisters and two brothers.

Angela was raised on a family farm in the valley and graduated from Yakima High School. In 1941, she met the love of her life, Lester Robel, while working in a warehouse in Ahtanum. They were married November 20, 1941 and four years later they moved into a home they built on an apple orchard west of Yakima where they raised their five boys. Angela lived in the home they created for more than 60 years. Angela was a very active member of Holy Family Catholic Church, a member of St. Paulaโ€™s Guild, and volunteered at St. Vincent DePaul. She loved gardening and was not happy unless she was digging in the dirt; if you could grow it, she could can it. She was also an accomplished seamstress, making clothes for the entire family.

She is survived by her children and their spouses: Joe and Carol of Olympia; Jerry and Bonnie of Selah; Robert of Connell; Allan and Debbie of Moses Lake; and Bruce and Bonnie of Spanaway. She also has 15 grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; her sister, Theresa Ciez; brothers, Stanley and John; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her sisters Margaret Kushner, Genevieve Pontes, and Shirley Emard and a granddaughter, Josetta Robel.

A Viewing will be available from 4 pm to 8 pm with a Rosary recited at 6 pm. Both will be at Langevin El Paraiso Funeral Home on Monday, July 27, 2020.

A Funeral Mass will be held at Calvary Cemetery at 10 am Tuesday July 28, 2020 with burial to follow at Calvary Cemetery. There is no seating so bring a chair and shading if needed. To share a memory with her family please visit lepfuneralhome.com.

Angela is going to be missed by all of her friends at Rose of Mary Terrace. I will miss her coming to the office and teaching me how to can pepper jelly. And she tried teaching me her gardening skills but I think she mastered that way better than me. Miss that big grin on her face, and loved watching her mother Jerry when he came to visit her and still telling him how to do things then she would look at me and grin. Who's going to cook the turkey at the Rose of Mary potluck for Thanksgiving. She mastered that too! I can see her digging in the dirt in heaven. Missed and loved.

What a sweet sweet soul. Those sparkly eyes and warm heart. She always made you feel welcome. If you were a friend to her son, you were a great friend to her. We loved and respected you with all our hearts Mrs. Robel.

Now rest in the arms of Jesus.

Sending condolences to the family of Angie Robel. I have fond memories when I was a young girl growing up with the Robel family. My parents Darwin and Evelyn Rogers belonged to the Tieton Grange with the Robels and many farmers living North of Yakima, Wa. We lived across the road for awhile on the Beckwith place. I remember playing with Joe and his brother Richard. Lester and Angie used to enjoy playing card games, and I think mainly Canasta.
If my mom, Evelyn, was still alive she, too would be 104 years old in July.

Angie was a sweet, feisty woman who I greatly admired. I'm so sorry we didn't get over to take to church and lunch because of the covid situation.

Aunt Angela was such a sweetie!! I still use the beautiful hand embroidered tea towels she gave Dan and I 28+ years ago for our wedding! She is up in Heaven with our mom, Daphne, and all the Robelโ€™s playing cards again!! ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’

Aunt Angie was as sweet a lady as one would ever hope to know! (I always addressed her as "Aunt" both because "first cousin once- removed" was too much of a mouthful and because that was too much precise detail for me to comprehend as a child. More importantly, because she WAS an aunt to me!)

I send my Love and Deepest Condolences to All of those who knew and loved her!

Please excuse my redundancy! EVERYONE who knew her loved her!

God Bless You and your loved ones, Aunt Angie! Soon enough, we will celebrate another Robel Family Fourth of July together in a far better place!

My mom always said Angie was her best friend, and my dad and Lester were partners in crime. I remember I loved going to Their house to play. One time Angie dressed me in some of the boys hand me downs (rolled up jeans and a tee shirt) so I could get dirty . She always had a big glass jar with cookies she would give me, they were so good. They gave us our first dog โ€œCharleyโ€. I always loved her. She was so good and sweet and what a great laugh!! Later in my life when my mom died Angie called me and consoled me and told me I would be ok. And a few years later when my dad got so sick and weak she wrote me and told me I had earned my crown to heaven.. She was so tough on the outside but with a sweet marshmallow middle. My whole family loved Angie and all of the Robel family. I know she is at peace and with God. My deepest sympathy to all of the Robel family, much love, Debbie Dahlquist

"My Dear Angie" I have so many wonderful memories of times spent with the Robel family when I was a child. On several occasions my parents, Darwin and Evelyn Rogers, my sister Anne and I would gather together with friends in the home of Lester and Angie's. I distinctly remember the adults playing cards, Lester's contagious laughter, Angie's smile and all of the children having fun just being together. My guess is we kids were pretty active. Another great memory were the times spent with Angie and other friends who belonged to the Tieton View Grange. My sister and I attended Mountain View Elementary with the boys. Anne knew the older boys and I was in the same grade as Robert. As an adult, I always felt joy and loved when I would see Angie somewhere in town. She just had a way making you feel special. Love to all who knew her. Marilyn (Rogers) Patterson

Auntie Angie gave me the cutest photo of Uncle Lester and my dad when he was about 18 months old when Maddy was born. I remember how you NEVER opened a Cool Whip container around Christmas because it contained HEAD CHEESE and not Cool Whip. My dad was always thrilled to get this yearly gift of homemade love.
