Obituary of Angela Wiedemann-Trissell

Angela Therese Wiedemann, aged 54, was born November 30, 1962 in Santa Cruz, California. She passed away on Tuesday May 23, 2017 after a strenuous battle with pancreatic cancer. She graduated from Soquel High School in 1979. She then served in the United States Air Force as one of the first female, in-flight refueling, boom operators. It proved to be a job she loved, and was extremely proud of. After serving four years she came back to Santa Cruz, California where she started her 32 year long career at Bay Federal Credit Union. Angie assisted hundreds of members to realize the American dream as a mortgage loan officer.

She was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. She felt very strongly about contributing, and serving the community she lived in for over 50 years. Her passions included spending time in and nurturing incredible gardens, enjoying nature and the outdoors, and creating masterful pieces of stained glass. She had a divine love for the aromas of fresh cut grass, and jet fuel.

Five years ago she met the man of her dreams. A man who changed her life, and the lives of her family. They married two years ago, on what was her most jubilant day. Her smile beamed from ear to ear.

She had a presence that was the light in the darkness, and her bountiful laughter will echo in our hearts forever. Her infectious smile filled the world around her with love and joy.

She is survived by her Husband Phil Trissell of Watsonville, Parents Norman & Teresa Wiedemann of Santa Cruz, Daughter Meghan Berglund of Santa Cruz, Son Mathew Berglund of Scotts Valley, Brother Augie & Sue Wiedemann of Santa Clara, Sister Catherine & Neal Frost of Scotts Valley, Sister Gilda & Larry Foran of Florida, Sister Mary & Ross Touli of Campbell, Aunt Trudy Locatelli of South Carolina, many nieces, nephews, cousins, and close friends throughout the states.

She was welcomed at the gates of heaven by her loving daughter Lauren Teresa Berglund. Who is no longer with us, but has been greatly missed since her untimely death.

She was an avid contributor to Avon breast cancer, and worked tirelessly to help fight this disease. Any monetary donations can be made out to under participant name Mary Touli (Sister).

Services will be held on Sunday May 28, 2017 beginning at 11:00 a.m. at Benito & Azzaro Pacific Gardens Chapel. Committal services will follow at a later date TBD.

Any flower arrangements can be sent to Benito & Azzaro Pacific Gardens Chapel, 1050 Cayuga St, Santa Cruz, CA, 95062.

We have lost an exceptional woman, and she will be immensely missed.
