Angeline Mary Kempenich was born on January 7, 1929, in Lakeville, MN, to the late Robert and Gladys (Everson) Speiker and throughout her life, she brought joy and warmth to all who knew her.
Angeline was a remarkable woman, gracefully navigating the tapestry of life. With her gentle spirit and kind-hearted nature, she touched the lives of everyone she encountered. Her warmth was felt in her role as a devoted mother to her cherished children.
