Angela was an ambitious soul and achieved so much in her short lifetime. She graduated high school in Sacramento from Valley High School in 2005.

While achieving her dreams in school, Angela became a CNA in 2012 and began a job in a care center for the elderly.

In 2017, she worked as a PACU RN for Pediatrics and in 2018, she began to work as an RN where she reviewed labs and assisted with educating and counseling patients while simultaneously working with patient care and practicing procedure.
Angela loved her family and friends. She always wanted to know how you were doing and was only a call or text away. She would come to your aid if she knew you needed help with anything. She was a social butterfly who had the ability to make new friends â everyone loved her. She had an appetite for life and loved going camping, to the beach, or on trips to the snow. Anything you wanted to do; she was grateful to be doing it along with you.
Angela is survived by her parents Rosa and Frederick and younger sisters Marie and Sophia.
