Immigrating to Canada from their native Lithuania following World War II, she and her husband Joseph quickly established roots in Canada. Their vision was not only to establish themselves in their new country, but to ensure that their children would know and understand their beautiful homeland.
Angelika and Joseph became pillars of the Lithuanian community in Canada and abroad and were defined by their selflessness and outstanding work ethic. Angelika was involved with volunteer work at the Resurrection Parish in Toronto, lectured on Lithuanian literature at Toronto’s ‘Maironis’ Lithuanian school, and served as Chair of the Canadian Lithuanian Catholic Women’s League. Angelika sought to always learn new things, and having raised her three sons enrolled in the English Literature program at Toronto’s York University where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree.
She was devoted to Joseph, their children Raymond (Maureen), Paul (Charlene), and Mark (Ina), her grandchildren Leah, Hannah, Matas, and Nerija, and great grandchildren Sylvie, Thomas, and Miles. As her health began to ebb, the opposite was true, they were all exceptionally devoted to her.
