Angie was born on Friday, November 13th, 1964 to Richard and Dorothy Stull at St. Joseph Hospital in Alliance, NE. The family moved to Valentine, NE in 1973 where Angie lived until she graduated from Valentine High School in 1983. Angie’s family moved to Bridgeport in February of 1983, however she chose to stay in Valentine with a family friend until she graduated a few months later. In May of 1983, after graduating, she moved to Bridgeport to be with her family. Angie attended St. Mary’s College in Kansas for one semester before deciding that college wasn’t for her. She returned to Bridgeport and started working at Masid Chevrolet.
Shortly after moving back, she started dating Nick Lapaseotes and the two were married on June 18th, 1989. They welcomed their first child, Alexandra (Alexa), on February 22nd, 1991 and two years later on April 23rd,1993 they welcomed their second child, Nicholas.
Along with Masid Chevrolet, she had also worked at Bridgeport State Bank, RK Nelson Associates and Lapaseotes LTD. Angie and her sister Julie started doing craft fairs as a hobby, until they decided to partner and start a business in 2001 called The Tarnished Halo. The two sisters co-owned the business until 2018, when Angie became the sole owner. Angie decided to retire and sell her business in 2021 after an impressive twenty-year run! A major reason for wanting to retire were Angie’s three grandchildren, which were her pride and joy. She wanted the freedom to spend all the time she could with her grandchildren, knowing more would soon follow. Angie had four grandchildren at the time of her passing, with a fifth grandchild only weeks away from being born.
Angie was well known for her quick wit and funny one-liners. She had a selfless way about her that is extremely rare, and many people felt the effects of that throughout her lifetime. Her smile and laugh were contagious, especially when she found something extremely funny. Angie was a quiet person, but when she did speak, people would listen to what she had to say. Her heart was made of gold and she cared so much about the things she held dear. She will be greatly missed by so many.
Angie was preceded in death by her grandparents Leslie and Dorothy Stull and Cecil and Agnes Beal, mother Dorothy Stull, father-in-law Connie Lapaseotes, sister-in-law Robin Coulter-Lapaseotes, and numerous aunts and uncles.
She is survived by her husband Nick Lapaseotes, children Nicholas and Manda Lapaseotes and Eric and Alexa Gutierrez, father Richard Stull, mother-in-law Chris Lapaseotes, grandchildren Rhett, Breck, Delilah, Ellie and Baby G, siblings Stephen and Vicki Stull, Andrew and Becky Stull, Mike and Tara Stull, Chris and Andrea Stull, Doug and Julie Hadden, Jody Weitzel, Pete Lapaseotes, Steve and Helen Plummer, along with numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
