Angela Michelle (Osterberg) Towns, of Poplar Grove, Illinois, peacefully went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 7, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. The daughter of Robert and Valerie (Lambert) Osterberg, she was born in Rockford, Illinois on Wednesday, July 29, 1981. Angie graduated from Belvidere High School where she played volleyball and basketball and was an honor roll student. Angie attended Rock Valley College in Rockford, Illinois, where she obtained her Associates Degree in Phlebotomy. Angie became a mother to Savanna Rayne on October 15, 2004, and married Thomas Towns on Saturday, May 15, 2021. Those who knew and loved Angie will remember her loving and caring heart, her charming personality, and her beautiful smile. Angie loved meeting people, and all who knew her were drawn to her sweet and caring disposition, her lighthearted sense of humor, witty personality, and her perpetual optimism that could light up a room. Her selflessness was unparalleled, and she never hesitated to help anyone, even those she had just met. Throughout her life, Angie’s strong will, determination, and dedication positioned her to excel at everything she put her heart and mind to accomplish. She was an excellent flutist and performed solos at numerous sporting events during high school. Her radiant beauty shined brightly during high school as Homecoming Attendant and a candidate in the Boone County Fair pageant. Angie’s greatest accomplishment in life was becoming a mother to Savanna, whom she loved “to the moon and back.” Angie dedicated her life to raising and loving Savanna, managing multiple jobs while working on her degree as a single mother. For many years, Angie brought joy, smiles, and laughs while working at Timber Pointe. Angie never forgot a name or a detail about those she met and would always celebrate both big and small moments. She was a committed and dedicated employee for several years at Jack Wolf, and was most recently employed as a Claims Supervisor at Liberty Mutual. One of Angie’s favorite places was Leech Lake, Minnesota where she treasured spending time on the boat with her daughter Savanna. Angie loved listening to the Temptations while fishing with her family, which included her favorite song, “My Girl.” Angie genuinely adored her father, husband, children, sisters and brother, nieces and nephews, and grandson. She never missed an opportunity to spoil her family with handmade cards and letters, treats, and her homemade oils and salts that she made as gifts. An avid White Sox fan, Angie loved to watch baseball games with her Dad, and take walks together down Loveridge Road where she lived most of her life. Angie is deeply loved and will be missed by her husband, Tom; precious and beloved daughter, Savanna Osterberg; son, Tavis (Natalie Otwell) Towns; daughter, Teagan (Tevin Hernandez) Towns; sisters, Aami (Patrick) Molloy, Allison (Andrew) Mannino; brother, Rob (Megan) Osterberg; sisters-in-law, Tara (Jason) Kochheiser, Teresa (Ray) Wennmacher; brother-in-law, Trevor (Sue) Towns; adored nieces, Addison Grace, Madelyn Reagan, Delaney Rose, Falyn Mae (goddaughter), Samantha Ann, Iyla Mae, Hadleigh Rose; special nephews, Carter Montgomery, Maxx Thomas; grandson, Lateo Hernandez; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins; cherished dogs, Charlie and Lucy. Angie is also survived by her father, Robert, who was truly the love of her life, her hero, and her biggest fan. While we will forever miss our “Sunshine”, Angie’s loving family has found solace in knowing that she is with her mother, Valerie, who preceded her in beginning eternal life in Heaven. Angie was deeply proud of Savanna’s academic achievements and successes. In honor of Angie, a memorial college fund will be established for Savanna. Memorial donations may be made to the Benefit of Angela Osterberg through Blackhawk State Bank or sent to Belvidere Funeral Home & Cremation Service. The family would like to express sincerest gratitude to the team at Provena St. Joseph, Chicago, and the Rockford Swedish American Medical group for the stellar care for Angie. To allow her family time together to grieve the deep void left by her passing while celebrating Angie’s life, her memorial services will be private.
