Angela Mae Heinz, 24, of Ipswich, passed away Saturday, August 20, 2022, at Monument Health Rapid City Hospital surrounded by family and friends.
Mass of Christian Burial was at 10:30 a.m., Monday, August 29, 2022, at Holy Cross Catholic Church, Ipswich, with Father Tim Cone officiating. Burial was at Holy Cross Cemetery, Ipswich.
Angie was born to Ed and Lorie (Bobby) Heinz on March 18, 1998, in Aberdeen. She graduated from Ipswich High School where she achieved many outstanding accomplishments. Angie proceeded to further her education at SDSU, graduating in 2020 with her bachelor's degree in graphic design. Shortly after, she moved to Rapid City, where she had a career in what she loved as a graphic designer.
At a young age, she was artistic, athletic, and loved the outdoors which continued into her adult life where she was a self-taught guitarist. Angie spent the majority of her time outdoors with her dog "Boone", family, and friends. In her 24 years, she's seen and done much more than most do in their lifetime. Angela's adventures and fearlessness took her on extraordinary journeys, which included snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, and rock climbing.
Angela's personality was a spontaneous free spirit paired with a huge caring heart. She brought joy to and had a positive impact on everyone she met. Her strong faith led her to be selfless, compassionate, and endlessly kind. This resulted in her gaining countless friends. Her soul was genuine, kind, and beautiful.
Angela's heroic and final act of kindness was the gift of organ and tissue donation. May her loving spirit live on in the lives of others.
Angela's life motto, which she lived by was: "Live immediately..." by celebrating today and always, by doing something out of your comfort zone, something fun, something crazy, and something for yourself. We're not saying goodbye, it's "see you later."
Grateful for having shared Angela's life are her mother, Lorie Heinz; father, Ed Heinz; siblings, Shawn (Lexi) Heinz, Brittney (Shane) Jung, and Blake (Bridget) Heinz; paternal grandmother, Laverna Heinz; nieces and nephews, Connor, Valerie (Angela's goddaughter), Brynlee, and Hayden; and her beloved dog, Boone.
Angela was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Frank and Rosemary Heinz; and her maternal grandparents, Francis and Geraldine Bobby.
