Angela Dawn Schinko, 42, died Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2018, at her home in Buena Vista, Georgia. She was born in Denver, Colorado to Verna Schuettpelz and Sam Clark on April 9, 1976.

It is impossible to capture a person in an obituary, especially someone whose life was ended so soon.

She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

Angie is survived by her parents, Verna and Jerry Schuettpelz, Sam and Patty Clark, and Dillard Clark; siblings, Jennifer, Kristi, Sarah, and Calvin; and children, Adrienne Clark and Tristin Schinko. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
