She lived a full and content life. She was the fifth child of Matthias & Elizabeth (Theis) Sittenauer. She was born and grew up in Atchison, KS. She attended Mount St. Scholastica Academy in Atchison, graduating in 1955. She married her beloved Eugene C. Hegarty on March 5, 1957. Her first child Mary Janelle was born that year on Christmas day. She had two more Christmas children, which made Christmas time very special in the Hegarty household. In addition to Janelle (Ken Kranz), she gave birth to Michael Eugene (Cathy), Mark Clarence (Janelle), Timothy Charles (Stephanie), Sandra Ann (Mike Engeman), and Terrence John (Rebecca), all of whom survive.
She also leaves behind twenty-six grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, one brother George Sittenauer, three sisters, Betty Albers, Mary Kay Harris and Judy Curtis, two sisters in law, Shirley Cole and Sharon Hegarty, and countless friends from both Effingham, where she lived with Gene most of her life, and Atchison. Gene preceded her in 2013 as did brothers Charles, Gene and Ken, and infant James. Gene and Angela were life-long devoted parishioners at St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Effingham, a parish they loved dearly.
