A former nurse, Angela cared for both her mother who had a series of strokes and her husband, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Both died in 2001.
Angela trained as a nurse as a mature student in Somerset. She subsequently worked for 15 years in Yeovil Hospital and in various care homes including Preston Park House where she was Deputy Manager. She also worked in the district caring for patients in their own homes, many with terminal conditions. At the same time she looked after her own mother at home for 12 years. Angela gave up nursing when her husband was diagnosed with a brain tumour. During the nine months he was ill, her mother had a series of strokes disabling her a little more each time. They both died in 2001 within a month of each other. She has since remarried and lives in Woolston near North Cadbury.
