Angela was born on July 5, 1953, in Sensuntepeque, El Salvador.  She spent most of her life there and when she was able to get to the United States to join her family, she did just that.  In 2008, she made her way to Nacogdoches as was overjoyed at the blessing of being able to meet her grandchildren. 

Angela was a sister, mother and grandmother and her family was her greatest joy.  She enjoyed traveling all over the great state of Texas and occasionally to other places to visit family.  She was a great cook and a trusted seamstress.  She often spent her time making articles of clothing, blankets or repairing something for family members.  Angela recently was blessed to have celebrated her 70th birthday, surrounded by her family and those she loved the most. 

Angela led a simple Christian life, dedicating herself to Jesus and spreading the love of Christ to her family and friends.  She was a member of Iglesia Bautista Cristiana where she truly enjoyed her women’s group.

Angela is survived by her son, Wilfredo Sanchez; daughters, Xenia Carolina Sanchez, Jesus Dalila Sanchez and Maria Guadalupe Sanchez; brothers, Margarito Sanchez and Pablo Sanchez; 12 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Victor Fuentes and Angela Sanchez and 11 siblings.
