Angela Marie (DeJesus) Simpson passed 12 February 2024 in Lubbock, Texas.

She was born 16 January 1977 in Geneva, Ohio to Manuel and Sherry Gomez DeJesus. She grew up in Ashtabula but spent some of her childhood living in Puerto Rico with her father’s family. Time spent on the Island became some of her best memories of her early years. She was a 1996 graduate of Slidell, Louisiana High School. She also cherished the years she lived with her grandmother Dominica Antoinetta in Big Spring, Texas. While in Big Spring she worked as a lab assistant for a Biology Professor at Howard College. Fifteen years later, on 5 September 2015, Angela married that Biology professor, the love of her life, Lynn Aaron Simpson. They made their home in Mexia, Texas and later in Post, Texas.

Angela went on to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from Keiser University and received  a Master of Science Degree in Autism from Grand Canyon University.  She taught elementary special education for six years, first at Mexia ISD and later in Post. She adored her students and they loved her. Though they frequently challenged her, she knew it made her a better teacher. Angela loved to sing. She sang in church choirs most of her life and found a home singing in the First Baptist Church of Post choir and cherished the fellow choir members. She and Lynn liked to travel and antiquing. Though not a Rotarian, she enjoyed attending Rotary events with Lynn and she was a Paul Harris Fellow.

She treasured family. Having six siblings, reunions were loud and chaotic, and she cherished every moment.  She prized her many friendships present and past. She tried her best to stay in touch. Angela was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband Lynn, big brother Manuel DeJesus, Jr. (wife Tiffiney), brothers Enrique DeJesus (wife Bobbie Jo), Christopher  Gomez Enos (wife Gesela), Carlos DeJesus (wife Rosemary), Jose Gomez Gomez, sister Alicia Mae Gomez and almost two dozen nieces and nephews that she loved and adored.

The Family would like to thank the Post ISD and all of Garza County Community for their help and support over the last 1 ½ years.

A memorial service will be held at the First Baptist Church of Post, Texas on 2 March 2024 at 10 am. The family suggests memorials to the First Baptist Church of Post Wednesday Night Meal Program for the Post youth and home bound, to the Garza County Historical Museum or to your favorite charity.
