Angie was born, the sixth child of Jane Haiduk Urbanczyk and Bernard Urbanczyk in White Deer, Texas, on March 12, 1924. She graduated with honors from White Deer High School and went on to Business College in Amarillo. On July 5, 1943, as soon as her betrothed “earned his wings”, as a Pilot in the Navy Air Corp, she married Howard Lee Beddingfield, at Sacred Heart, Catholic Church in White Deer, Texas. Howard would be her best friend and husband for the next forty-five years. Together, after traveling from coast to coast with the US Navy, during WWII, they returned to Panhandle, Texas to start their family. As a united force, they were successful in the business of Farm and Ranching. For many years, during income tax season, January 1 to April 15, Angie worked for Mr. A. J. Weiser, in his Accounting practice. However, most of her days were spent being an amazing mother, homemaker, and bookkeeper for the family farming operation. Angie was reared in, and remained all her life, a faithful member of The Roman Catholic Church. She and Howard were dedicated to insuring their children learned the values of faith and a vital work ethic. There was no excuse for missing mass or catechism! She was a member of the Antheium Women’s Club, Catholic Mothers, VF Wives, Panhandle PTA, Panhandle Country Club, and Fifty Five +.
After Howard’s death, she worked for her son, Gary Beddingfield, in the Insurance and
Real Estate Business. Finally retiring, she enjoyed volunteering at what were then, St. Anthony’s Hospital, and St. Ann’s Nursing Home, as well as the Carson County Square House Museum. Also, by this time, Angie had accumulated nine grandchildren and a growing number of great grand children, whom she adored and attended every event in which they were involved. Angie had a warm way of endearing herself to everyone who was blessed to be swept into her ever growing and evolving circle of family, and friends who were like family. Her Faith and love for her family will remain her exemplary legacy. She had a wonderful way of making each of us feel as if we were uniquely her favorite.
Angie was preceded in death by her husband Howard Lee Beddingfield, her daughter, Janie Sue Beddingfield Plumlee, granddaughter, Jamie Sue Ogletree, her parents, and siblings, Dalen Rohan, Bennie Urbanczyk, Vinson Urbanczyk, and Helen Obert.
