Family and friends will gather to celebrate her life of 41 years on Friday, December 1, 2017, at 6 p.m. at Broadway Church of Christ in Lubbock, TX. A tribute of Angela’s life may be found at www.memorialdesigners.net, where you may leave memories and expressions of sympathy for her family.
Angela Dawn was born on February 12, 1976, to John DeMarco and Nancy Shorf Guard in Mayfield Heights, Ohio. Angela graduated from high school in Huntsville, TX. She later went on to receive her bachelor’s degree in Education from Texas Tech University and then her master’s degree from Lubbock Christian University. Angela was a beloved educator who taught U.S. History at Hutchinson Middle School for almost 15 years touching the lives of hundreds of students.
When she wasn’t teaching, Angela could be found on the phone talking to her mother, tailgating at Red Raider Football games, telling one of her many funny stories, reading a novel, delighting us with her cooking, or spending time with her family and friends. “She was smart, funny, and satirical in just the right amounts–and sensitive, empathetic, and caring in the same breath.” If you were lucky enough to have met Angela, she was someone you would never forget.
Survivors include her mother, Nancy Guard and Robert; father, John DeMarco; siblings, John DeMarco and wife, Donna; Lea Rowe and husband, Michael; Rick Guard and wife, Sarah; Christine Kirstin and husband, Larry; Mikki Palumbo and husband, Frank; and Robert Guard; nephews, Austin and Carter DeMarco; Levi Guard, Aiden Rowe, Frank Palumbo; Nathan and Brandon Kirstin; and maternal grandmother, Gloria Shorf. Angela is also survived by her loving Lubbock Family.
