Angeline J. Carnes, 78, of Flora, IL, died on Friday, January 20, 2012 at Flora Rehab & Health Care Center In Flora.
She was born April 11, 1933 in Chicago, IL to Vito and Emily (Rio) Paglia. She was a homemaker and a lifelong member of the Catholic faith. Angeline will be remembered by those around her as providing a beautiful example of how "to love and be loved" in everything she did. She was a special lady. She lived life with a speech and hearing impairment, but this did nothing to lessen her dedication to her family.
