Angela operated Appalachian Memories Florist in Jasper, for many years and had an amazing talent for giving to others. Her beautiful flower arrangements have touched many families in our community. Her greatest talent was sharing. She loved to share by giving of her time at the Lyons Gate Mortuary, she loved sharing at the Jasper elementary Spook house where she and special friend Jean Noland always gave the kids a good scare all in fun as they raised money for the school. Angela was currently employed by Lowe's in Ellijay and Subway in Ball Ground. Angela opened her home to the community for years as she welcomed visitors to her Christmas home filled with over 40 trees and special decorations. Over 400 people toured the home each weekend and many returned with special decorations for her to add to this beautiful gift to others. Born on Christmas Eve 1969 Angela had a special love for the holiday and angels. Angela joined her mother as co-host of North Georgia Now Today and enjoyed meeting folks through television.
