She also loved all genres of music and went to several concerts with her husband and daughter, the last one they went to all together was BTS. Angel had a beautiful voice and led the church choir at St. Andrew's Catholic Church.
She also was a great barista of coffee, teas and adult beverages. Even if she didn't partake she loved to supply everyone for a good time. Angel loved studying and making cocktails. She had a thirst for knowledge and just wanted to be well educated to learn and discover new things not only for herself, but to share with those she loved.
Angel also possessed an innate connection with nature and found solace in gardening. Her love for plants was particularly evident in her beautifully tended rose bushes. She poured time and care into nurturing them, resulting in exquisite blooms that filled the air with their sweet fragrance. Angel's green thumb brought both beauty and tranquility into her life. She also loved her tomato gardens and enjoyed a fresh tomato from the vine. Angel loved crocheting and even giving as personalized gifts.
