Angeline Ihle was born on July 22, 1925 to Jacob and Philomena (Nagel) Ihle at Haynes, N.D. She was raised in Haynes, attended grade school and high school there and graduated in 1943.

Following her graduation, Angeline, attended Business College in Minneapolis, Minn. She returned to Hettinger and began working as a teller at the First National Bank.

On Nov. 6, 1951, she was united in marriage to George Mueller. George and Angeline moved to the family farm northwest of Hettinger.

Angeline continued working at the bank until the birth of their oldest daughter when she became a full time farm wife and homemaker. In 1975 she began working as a bookkeeper at the Hettinger Auto, she later worked at Farmers Union Oil and the Adams County Record before retiring.

Angeline enjoyed sewing, crocheting, embroidery, gardening and baking. We will remember her fresh baked cookies and caramel rolls as well as all her after school snacks. Angeline also decorated cakes for her family, she made birthdays special by remembering each birthday with a cake. The decorated doll cakes were some of her best work.

Angeline will be remembered for her gentle nature, quick smile, and her special way for making everyone feel comfortable and being a friend to everyone. She loved to visit with people and could carry on a conversation with anyone.

Angeline considered her grandchildren one of her greatest gifts. She will be remembered for her love of babies and young children. She appreciated every opportunity to be able to spend time with her grandchildren, nieces, and nephews and enjoyed watching them grow up. She was always grateful when someone would share their children.

Angeline was a lifelong member of St. Catherine’s Altar Society. She volunteered at the Hettinger Clothes Closet for a number of years.

George passed away in 1993 and Angeline continued to live on the farm. She later moved to Lemmon to live with her daughter until December of 2011 when she entered Five Counties Nursing Home in Lemmon. She found many new friends at the nursing home, especially Alice.
