Sr. Margaret M. Angle, 85, died Sept. 30 at the CSFN Provincialate in Des Plaines, IL. A native of Chicago, baptized at St. Stanislaus Bishop & Martyr Parish, Chicago, Sr. Margaret joined the community in 1944 at the then Sacred Heart Provincialate in Des Plaines, IL.
Over the years, she taught at St. Michael the Archangel, St. Susanne, St. Hedwig and Holy Family Academy, all in Chicago; St. Blase, Argo, IL,and St. Andrew, Calumet City, IL.

In 1996, she was pastoral administrator at St. John the Baptist Parish in Johnsburg, IL. From 1997 - 2001, she served as secretary/finance at Immaculate Conception Parish in Chicago.
Throughout her life, getting together with family and friends was important to her. She enjoyed sharing information and the latest news with any one who engaged her in conversation. They found a delightful conversationalist with knowledge in numerous areas. This was especially true in her teaching. Her love of Scripture and theology was evident in her classes, enabling her students to have a better understanding of the Bible.
Retiring in 2001 to the Des Plaines Provincialate, Sr. Margaret served as a driver for the sisters through 2008. One of her favorite activities was taking the sisters shopping and to special places of interest and beauty. Despite health issues in recent years, she remained active in community life until her unexpected death.
