Ms. Angelyn Thomas passed away on Thursday, August 1, 2019 in Tampa, Florida. Funeral services were held on Sunday, August 11, 2019 at 2:00 PM at Powell Grove Baptist Church, Devereux, Georgia with Rev. Ceasar Johnson officiating. Interment was held in the church cemetery.
She was born on June 17, 1956 in Devereux, Hancock County, Georgia to the parentage of Mr. John Thomas, Sr. and the late Mrs. Annie Gay Lewis Thomas.
She was a graduate of John Hay High School’s Class of 1975 in Fishkill, New York. While there, she excelled in field hockey, basketball and track. Through hard work and perseverance, she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in 2014. Angie enjoyed family, faith, friends, sports, learning new things and especially fishing.
Angie was truly one of a kind. Rarely do you come across someone who has the ability to make you feel as though you are at your best even when you think you are falling short. Her unwavering faith guided everyone she loved on their darkest days. She awoke every morning and read her Joyce Meyer’s devotional followed by sending good morning blessings to her loved ones. Her favorite time of the year was fall when she cheered on the Michigan Wolverines. Even in her last moments, Angie’s life was filled with laughter. She always made time to check in on her loved ones.
Angelyn left us but her memory lives within our hearts. The infectious laugh, the comforting shoulder and the warm smile are three of the infinite things we will miss. Rest in paradise Angie. We love you.
