The following comments were left on the Pebble Mill Facebook page:
Lynn Cullimore: ‘I have emailed Angela but want to say here that as Janice says I always remember her always having a smile on her face, always a cheery word and always helpful when I went up to Contracts to sort something out. I am sure I join lots of others who are thinking of her and wishing her all the best. Lots of love to you Angela.’
Linda Flavell: ‘A lovely lady, always smiling through it all and always looks just gorgeous’
Helen Chetwynd: ‘I remember Angela as always looking glamorous. Bright and bubbly, a really gorgeous lady inside as well as out, always laughing, always with a smile on her face, even when she was ill. An inspiration.’
Ruth Barretto: ‘A lovely lady who worked across the corridor from me when I worked in contracts and me in finance. Gorgeous smile , rushing up and down the corridor. Even when she was going through her treatment she took time to speak to my friend Geeta to give her words of encouragement.’
Janice Mezzetti: ‘Things that come to mind when thinking of Angela – the smile, the twinkle in her eyes and her sense of humour. Wishing her peaceful and happy times surrounded by those she loves.’
Vanessa Jackson: ‘I remember making a leaving tape for Janet Brookes, when she was retiring, and I interviewed Angela about working with Janet. She told the story of Janet’s reprimands if staff were ever late, and not in by 9.30am – and having to rush up the stairs and try and sneak in without the lateness being spotted! I’ll have to search the loft and see if I still have the tape! ‘
