Currently, she was working at Summerfield in Hammond and loved her work family and residents. She was a hobbyist, from crocheting to embroidery, painting, cooking, shopping, and so much more.

Angela was a loving mother, Mimi, daughter, aunt, friend, nurse, and so much more. Her grandchildren were her world, and she will be deeply missed by everyone who knew her.
She is reunited with her husband, Aubrey Charles Hamilton; father, Jerry Lee Gerhardt, Sr.; brother, Jerry Lee Gerhardt, Jr.; maternal grandparents, Annie Mae Riley and Charlie Riley; paternal grandmother, Lilian Earle Bostwick and her husband and paternal grandfather.
