Dorothy Viola (Nead) Angle, formerly of Saltillo, PA went to be with the Lord on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at the Altoona Center for Nursing. She was born on July 8, 1924, the daughter of William W. Nead and Viola (Wagner) Nead. She was married to Fred Grosh Angle on July 25, 1942 who preceded her in death on March 2, 2005. She is survived by her daughter, Nina Ott and husband Janvier of Washington, WV and son, Rodney and wife Ruth of Huntingdon¸PA. There are two grandchildren Dr. Janine Gusztaw and husband Robert of Wind Gap, PA and Shane Ott and wife Glenita of Parkersburg, WV along with three great-grandchildren: Megan Hockman, Alia Dorothy Ott and Anthony Michael Ott.
Dorothy was preceded in death by the following brothers and sisters: Stella Drake, Myrtle Kimmel, Alma Ingle, Clarence, Walter and Harold Nead. Two siblings Edwinna and Charles died in infancy. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
Dorothy graduated from Saltillo High School with honors. With the exception of traveling with her husband during his military service lived in the Saltillo area during her lifetime. She was a member of the Saltillo United Methodist Church until its closing where she held various offices. Most recently she attended the Immanuel Bible Church in Three Springs, PA. She was also known for always lending a helping hand to those in need and volunteering for many organizations. She was truly an example of a kind and selfless person.
Dorothy took great pride in her heritage and worked tirelessly on her families’ genealogy. She considered herself to be a true coal miner’s daughter as her father worked the mines his entire life. She could recount so vividly stories of her childhood living in a small town during the depression and coal mining era. A favorite story was that as a child she would wait for her father to come home from the mines. He would always save a piece of his lunch for her which would be covered in coal dust.
She will be remembered for her artistic talents and her devotion to nature. She was always an advocate for animals and their welfare. She nursed many ailing and homeless cats and dogs.
Upon Dorothy’s request, there will be no public viewing or visitation. Interment will be made at the original Wagner homestead at the Cherry Grove Cemetery in Three Springs at the family’s convenience.
Those wishing to honor Dorothy may do so by donating to the Immanuel Bible Church, 22054 Starr Rd, Three Springs, PA 17264 or the Huntingdon Co. Humane Society, 11371 School House Hollow Rd, Huntingdon, PA 16652.
