Angie was a Navy veteran of the Vietnam era, whose unit was the recipient of the Navy Commendation Medal for its photographic work in locating the remains of the doomed nuclear submarine, USS Scorpion (SSN-589). Upon her return to Hawaii after service, Angie attended the University of Hawaii for a time, then permanently located to the USA mainland settling in San Francisco, where she married her life partner, Edward Floeter. Travel within the USA beckoned, and in the 1970's Angie moved between Michigan, Idaho, South Carolina, and Virginia, finally raising her family of three children in Charleston, Toledo, Baltimore, Ayr, Scotland, and Lewisville, Texas. Angie was employed in positions which demanded integrity, dependability and even some curiosity. She spent several years with the Chessie System (C&O Railroad) and in 2000, began her gaming career. She was a longtime member of Hamon Gray, American Legion Post 83, La Porte, IN. Her final wish was to be remembered as someone who daily struggled to leave her world a better place because she lived.
