    She was born October 7, 1961 in Breese, a daughter of the late William and Verena, nee Wiegmann, Schrage.  She married Timothy Wilke on November 27, 1981 at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Greenville and he survived in St. Rose.


    In addition to her husband, Angela is survived by her children, Kim (Cory) Schneider, Daniel (Tiffany) Wilke, and Casey (Craig) Benhoff; grandchildren, Gavin Schneider, Rylan Schneider, Warren Benhoff, Andrew Benhoff, and was expecting the arrival of baby boy Wilke in December; siblings, William “Billy” (friend, Diane Jones) Schrage, Kathy (Kent) Johnson, Roger (Jan) Schrage, Elaine (Dan) Zitta, and Margie (William “Bill”) Mills; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Zita (Bill) Reeves, Rosanne (Tony) Wellen, Robert (Debbie) Wilke, Henry (Teresa) Wilke, and Louella (Gary) Hollenkamp; and numerous nieces and nephews.

    Angela was a member of St. Rose Catholic Church and Ladies Sodality and the St. Rose Development Club.  Angie worked alongside Tim on the Wilke Family Farm, moving equipment, cleaning out bins, and going on parts runs.  She was an accomplished seamstress who created beautiful sewing projects for countless friends and family members.  She also enjoyed flower arranging, quilting, crochet, and tending to her flower beds, but her favorite pastime was spending time with loved ones and cuddling with her grandkids.
