Angela Jean (Gansen) Mayer, was born December 26, 1973, in Osage, Iowa to Ken and Debra Gansen. After graduating from Crestwood High School, Angie attended Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa and received her degree in Psychology and Business Administration.
On April 13, 1996, Angie was united in marriage to Matt Mayer at the Wartburg Chapel. They lived in various places including Paullina, Calumet and Spencer before moving to Spirit Lake in 2008. In earlier years, Angie was the co-owner of Emagine Marketing and since has been a "serial entrepreneur". She was very creative and enjoyed working on many different projects over the years. More importantly, she cherished the relationships she built with her coworkers and the people she met.
Angie's greatest joy was her family, especially being a mom to her two boys, Noah and Sam. She loved following the boys in whatever they did and was their biggest supporter in life. She loved being a mom and cared and loved Noah and Sam's friends in a lot of the same ways.
Angie absolutely loved being on or in the water, whether it was a pool, ocean or a lake, it made no difference. She was a member of the Monday Night Golf League at Emerald Hills, loved to dance and had completed a sprint triathlon. She had a beautiful sense of adventure and loved traveling and seeing new things along the way. Her vibrant personality and beautiful smile made it easy to make friends (especially on airplanes). Angie had a very positive outlook, was selfless, kind and the warmth of her personality could be felt by everyone around her.
Angie passed away unexpectedly on May 30, 2022 at Lakes Regional Healthcare in Spirit Lake, Iowa, at forty-eight years of age.
