Angela Robin Moody, where to begin? For those who knew her, know that she lived a life of ups and downs. She gave birth to her first son at the age of 16, and her second at 18. The doctors discovered that she had cancer during the C-section of her second child and gave her six months to two years to live. She was sent to Duke Hospital for treatment. After much prayer, and a complete hysterectomy, she received a clean bill of health and lived 35 more years. She spent most of her life working as a waitress or a gas station attendant. Those jobs suited her because she loved people. Angela never met a stranger! I am not here to sugarcoat her life. She struggled with alcohol in her early years, and a few bad decisions landed her in the North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women. As strange as it may sound, Angela always said it was the best thing to happen to her. Angela worked the twelve steps of AA and found her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ while in prison. After 5 years and 1 month in the Department of Corrections, Angela was released with a new outlook on life. Her new goal in life was to make sure her two boys knew Jesus, as well as anyone else that she met. Angela had a dream of starting “Time Served Ministries” and had the privilege of speaking at several churches, as well as North Lenoir High School. She played a crucial role in both of her sons finally accepting the salvation offered through Jesus Christ. Angela used every opportunity to tell family and friends her life testimony; and boy did she have one! In 2015 she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which she defeated with ease. Unfortunately, she spent the next 5 years fighting it in other parts of her body. No matter how sick, or how much pain, she never blamed God and never stopped telling people about His love. She used the last of her time here on earth making sure her family and friends thought about their eternal future, which often comes unexpectedly! Angela spent her final week here on earth at Kitty Askins Hospice Center of Goldsboro surrounded by her family and friends. At 5:45 a.m. on June 19, 2020, Angela peacefully transitioned into her eternal life of joy with our King Jesus. Angela is now awaiting the arrival of those reading this obituary. We as a family pray that you know Jesus like Angela did or decide to make the important decision of knowing Him as your Lord and Savior.
Angela is survived by her sons, Steven Miller and wife Jessica, Joshua Pate; mother, JoAnn Carter; grandchild, Kailey Lowman; brothers, James Carter, Ronnie Moody and wife Amy, Mark Moody, Matthew Moody and wife Elizabeth; sisters, Christy Moody Smith and husband Clint, Rhonda Moody and special friend Ian Jones; and dogs, Ally and Tucker.
A Memorial Service will be held at Neuse Baptist Church at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 with Pastor Gregory Kincaid officiating. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service.
