Angie was born in Donalsonville, Ga on August 8, 1953. She graduated from Dublin High School in 1971, and then went on to work for Laurens Memorial Hospital. She later worked at the VA Medical Center and CHEP-AHEC, and then later went on to spend most of her life running Vick Thomas Electric. On August 22, 1971, she married her sweetheart Vick Thomas. She met him at the young age of fourteen and was smitten from the moment she met him in the Dairy Queen parking lot. From that day on, they spent a lifetime loving each other. They joyfully welcomed their son Jason in November of 1976 and were devoted to him from the first time they set eyes on him. He was and is their pride and joy. Angie loved being Jason’s momma. He was one of the best friends of her life. She often told stories of their little adventures together; just she and him hanging out and having fun.
One of Angie’s most defining roles of her life was that of Nana. If you knew Angie Thomas, then you knew that she absolutely loved her babies! When her grandchildren came into this world, she was there 100%. She adored anything that involved Evan, Kaitlin or Ian. If something made them happy then it made her happy, and she would move heaven and earth to make any of their wants or needs be met. She particularly loved watching Evan on the soccer field, her Kaitlin dancing, and little Ian as he drove circles around her house on his motorcycle or four-wheeler. She also loved watching Chase at his favorite place; the baseball diamond. Watching all her babies doing what they love gave her such joy in this life!
Angie had a wonderful life and was truly loved by so many. She loved all of her friends dearly and had a special place in her heart for her sorority sisters of the Beta Sigma Phi and was an alumni of Dublin Laurens Leadership. She was a fierce cook and often shared this gift with others when they were in a season of celebration or sorrow. Kaitlin often joined her Nana in the kitchen and loved to lick the bowl used in any of her delicious creations. Food was a beautiful ministry of Angie’s life. You could feel the love in her cooking. She loved to see those she loved gathered around a table laughing and loving each other over good ol’ southern favorites. Friends and family will carry many cherished memories of her gifts in the kitchen now and long into the future. Her family will forever hear their precious Angie say, “Go get you some more, y’all eat, there’s plenty.” That was Angie talk for, “I love you all so much, you’re my heart; my everything.”
Angie’s time on earth was cut short all too soon. Angie knew, and we know, that to be absent of the body is to be present with the Lord. She is with the Lord. She is no longer sick. She is healed and in heaven for eternity. Angie will be greatly missed by her loved ones, but we have the hope and we look forward to the sweet by and by when we shall all meet on that beautiful shore. We love you Nana!
