Angela Lynn Mills Blowe, 35, of 101 Windswept Lane, Columbus died Sunday, Oct. 7, 2012 in St. Luke’s Hospital, Columbus.
Born Oct. l9, 1976 in Honolulu, Hawaii, she was raised in the military. Over the years she lived in Alabama, North Carolina, Virginia and Germany. Angela graduated from Polk County High School in l995 after attending many different schools. She graduated from Central Carolina College, receiving an associate’s degree as a veterinary technician.  She worked in Greensboro, N.C. until she became ill in January of 2003 when she had a heart transplant later that same year. Since that time she has devoted all her energy to raising her son and caring for animals.
Angela loved horses and participated in many events at Harmon Field. Her passion was caring for all animals, which led to many pets and many strays finding a home. She worked at Foothills Humane Society before attending vet tech school. After her surgery, she became an accomplished artist under the guidance of Dale McIntyre.
Most important of all, Angela was saved by the grace of God and awaits us to join her in heaven.
Thanks to organ donation, Angela was able to raise her son for 9½ years.
