Clara Angel

Clara Frances Angel, age 98, of Alpine, Ala., formerly of Effingham, passed from her temporary dwelling here on earth on Saturday, June 22, 2013, to go home and be with her Lord Jesus Christ. She trusted in Jesus Christ alone to forgive her sins and then He changed her life, and it became a testimony of God’s grace, wisdom, and mercy.

The family will receive friends from noon to 1:15 p.m. Saturday at Johnson Funeral Home, Effingham. Graveside services will immediately follow at 1:30 p.m. at Oak Ridge Cemetery, Effingham, with the Rev. Dr. Roger Marshall officiating. Clara preferred that no flowers be sent, but donations can be made to The Gideons International, Alpine Baptist Church, PO Box 77, Alpine, AL 35014 and First Baptist Church, PO Box 306, Effingham, IL 62401. Online condolences may be left at www.johnsonandsonfh.com.

Clara was born on Feb. 20, 1915, in Vigo County, Ind., the daughter of Delpha and Elsie (Thompson) Paddock. She married Ellis O. Angel June 11, 1938, and was baptized into Effingham First Baptist Church in November of 1938. Clara had an engineering degree which helped her design their home on North Henrietta in Effingham. Next door to their home, Clara and Ellis had their Angels Sales and Service Rexair Vacuum Business. Clara and Ellis opened up their hearts and home to many children as foster parents in the Effingham area. Of her many interests, church and missions were most important including the development of new churches. Even at the age of 97 when she moved to Alpine, AL, it was still important to be involved in the local church. On April 7, 2013, she joined the family of Alpine Baptist Church.

She is remembered by her family, daughter, Denise (Don) Webb; grandchildren, Suzanne (Kevin) Kelley, Thomas (Judy) Ivy Jr., Timothy (Pam) Ivy, Brian (Christy) Taylor Jr., Kathleen (Steve) Williams, Jennifer (Jason) Montgomery, Josh (Danelle) Webb, Amanda Webb, and Joe (Christan) Webb; 12 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Ellis O. Angel; their daughter, Ruth Anne Ivy; and three sisters.
