WE REMEMBER HER . . .

. . . . . being so very intelligent and so well read. It was a rare topic that Angela was not at least acquainted with. Often we'd say, "Angela, have you heard about . . . or did you see the article in yesterday's paper about . . . ? and found she already had and was ready to discuss it at length. For Angela, education was a lifetime pursuit.

. . . . . being the consummate coach, showing excellent mastery of the techniques of her sport. She instilled in each of her athletes the striving for excellence which had exemplified her own life in athletics. She insisted that her athletes always take full responsibility for their actions on and off the field. She taught them true sportsmanship ---that winning was secondary to how well they played to the best of their ability on the field.

. . . . . running with her athletes in the hallways after school on those cold and rainy spring days --- her hair in a pony tail flopping this way and that way behind her --- urging on her team to run faster and farther each day of practice. And realizing that these efforts were sandwiched in between her running several miles each morning and teaching a full load of classes each day and spending hours at gruelling soccer practices each evening, one knew she was dedication personified.

. . . . . as the dedicated fan. She loved to follow the exploits of Nazareth College, her alma mater, and Notre Dame, the Minnesota Vikings, and the new Rochester Rhinos soccer team.

 

WE REMEMBER HER . . .

. . . . . as the dedicated team member of the Rochester Ravens, the womens' professional soccer team which would tour the country this summer. We learned early that it was no use asking her to attend such and such conference with us in the summer. Summer for Angela was for soccer.

. . . . . talking about how much she wanted to start a program in which students could learn, practice and spread tolerance and respect for those who are different from us. After attending a 3-day retreat with some of her students, she felt deeply that such a program was needed at all schools.

. . . . . being sensitive about her height. She would brook no short person jokes. But she taught us that the true measure of a person is not in feet and inches --- but rather in personal character, beliefs and positive actions. In these dimensions, she was a giant indeed.
