Angela M. Musgrove, 59 of Danville, passed away early morning of January 7th, 2021. Angie was born in Danville on May 6, 1961, the daughter of Clarence (Shag) and Ann Shadley.
Surviving Angie are her husband, Robert, her daughters, Sister Maria Belen, SCTJM and Emily Graham (Brad), her siblings, Jeff Shadley, Chris Shadley (Terry), and Annette Wiesemann (Dave) in addition to many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Angie is preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Russell Shadley and her sister, Teresa (Shadley) Howland.
Angie attended St. Patrick’s Grade School, South View Junior High, and graduated from Danville High School in the class of 1979. She graduated from Danville Area Community College then completed her formal education at Illinois State University where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education. She worked hard to pay for her education and persevered to reach her goal; an attribute that she held throughout her life.
She met her husband, Robert, when she needed a ride back to campus. Robert says that was the best hour and a half drive that he ever had. They were married on April 28th, 1990 at St. Paul Catholic Church in Danville, IL with Father John Henderson officiating.
Angie dearly loved the kids in her preschool. Parents were at ease in leaving their children to her care. Angie loved being a mother. Her love and devotion to family was unmatched. She always was more concerned with the well-being of others above her own needs and wants.
She valiantly beat back cancer for 13 years. The family sends their deepest gratitude to Dr. Jomel Labayog and his staff as well as the OSF Hospice team for all of their exceptional care and love. They were considered a part of the family.
Even to the end of her days, she was concerned that her caregiving team would not get enough to eat or time to sleep; even though she was in discomfort herself. She persevered through her illness and, when the time arrived, she told the family that she was ready and content. She showed her family how to approach death with strength and dignity. She is greatly missed but her laugh and smile lives on in the memories of her family and friends.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Thursday, January 14th at 10:00 AM at Holy Family Church 444 E. Main St. Danville, IL with burial at Resurrection Cemetery. Visitation will be at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Danville, Illinois, 3940 N Vermilion St. Danville, Illinois 61834 on Wednesday, January 13th from 4:00 to 7:00 PM.
