Messages of Condolence

  1. Marcia Faye condolence:

    While I did not directly work with Angie at Illinois Tech, I did have the chance to co-write an article with her about cybersecurity and educational opportunities offered by the School of Applied Technology. She was knowledgeable, resourceful, and an absolute delight. I could not have asked to work with a better person on this project. Her loss will indeed be felt by many. Please accept my condolences.

  2. Pam Houser condolence:

    Angie joined the INTM team soon after starting at Illinois Tech. She was an “Alpha” and ready for any challenge. She was a very special lady — exuberant, extremely competent, dedicated, selfless and witty. We are truly shocked and saddened by losing Angie; my sincerest condolences.

  3. Lucie Weir condolence:

    I hired Angie as a temporary worker in the Graduate College of IIT before she went on to INTM. She was a special young woman who was a devoted mom, great person, and an exemplary worker. I only saw Angie at large university meetings but she never forgot me. I want to extend my condolences to her son, whom she adored. I will pray for her and her family.

    I worked with Angie during her tenure with INTM. She was always upbeat and professional. I was very sorry to see her get promoted because she was so helpful in her position with INTM. I saw her often at university functions, and she always greeted me warmly and we had nice conversations whenever I saw her. I am so sorry that we have lost her. I will miss her.

    Angie and I worked together through SAT and she always impressed me with her kindness, dedication, knowledge, quick-wit, and sincere desire to always help everyone who needed her whether that was students, faculty, or staff. She was someone I always enjoyed speaking to and being around and counted her as a colleague I both trusted and respected.

    I miss her and her presence and am so sad for Eli and her family and for us. What a loss for everyone who knew her.
    My prayers and good thoughts are with all of you now and in the weeks, months, and years to come as you navigate life without Angie.
