She was born March 5, 1968, in Franklin, a beloved daughter of the late Charles E. and Sandra M. Bellis Urey.

For a number of years, Angel had worked as a Personal Care Assistant at The Caring Place in Franklin.

Angel always looked forward with great enthusiasm to her Friday morning O.A.R.S. coffee and kayak trips with her buddies: Jeff, Shawn, Christy, Ryan, Bobbie, Hal, Dee, Sandy, Roman, and Julie along the Allegheny River and Frenchcreek.

Foremost always was her family. She cherished the fun times she was able to share with them, especially watching her grandchildren grow up. Angel also had a love of camping with her family, and being free in the great outdoors. She will be deeply missed by all those who loved her!

She was a member of Grace United Methodist Church in Rocky Grove.

Angel was preceded in death by her parents, her maternal grandfather, and paternal grandparents.
