Joan S. Angell, age 94, of Coupeville, passed away at her home on Saturday, April 27, 2019, following a brief illness.
Mrs. Angell was born in San Diego, CA, on March 29, 1925, to William Bristol McHugh and Ruth Ray (Stanley) McHugh. Suzanne attended San Diego schools, graduating from high school there. She was an undergraduate of Stanford University, where she received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Art in 1946. She also received a Masters Degree in Art Education from Boston University.
Suzanne was married to George William Angell, Jr. on May 4, 1948, in Tokyo, Japan. The couple resided in Turkey from 1955-1963. After this, they lived in the Boston area, and she taught art in the Marlboro Public Schools. Following her retirement, she lived in Hillsdale, MI. She moved to Coupeville in 2017.
Suzanne was a prolific landscape painter. She also enjoyed gardening, bird watching, and was an ardent fan of mystery novels and playing cribbage. She had been a member of the Holy Trinity Episcopal parish in Hillsdale, MI, and was a lifelong Episcopalian.
Suzanne is survived by her three children: George W. Angell (Megan) of Hillsdale, MI, Serene Brodt of Coupeville and Frederick B. Angell (Linda) of Plymouth, MA; six grandchildren: Rhiannon Angell and Gwydion Angell; Chrysta Brodt (Jason Bebee), Kathleen Brodt and Ken Fung; Mintaka Angell and Ankara Angell; four great-grandchildren; numerous other beloved relatives.

Suzanne was a wonderful, loving and caring mother and grandmother.Her family gave her life the most importance and meaning. She had a great sense of humor and loved to share stories of events in her life. She also loved art and was a fantastic artist herself, many of her paintings proudly displayed in her and her daughters home. I was lucky enough to be given one that she had painted from my deck several years ago.She will be missed by family and friends alike. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family for their loss of a great woman and role model.
