Angie was born to Nathaniel Owens and Josephine Mae Owens (née Cobb) and raised in Toledo, OH as the youngest of their six daughters. Her father was an ordained minister of the First Church of God – Toledo, OH, which is where she maintained her membership and affiliation. She graduated from Libby High School in 1958 where she met and married the late Ronald L. Warren, Sr., who later became a Bishop when he accepted the call to ministry. The two married in 1957 and from their union came four children, Ronald Jr., Roland, Gayle and Keith. She was a committed mother, so when she tragically lost her oldest son at age 10, she was determined to raise her remaining 3 children in the best home possible.

She was a daughter, mother, entrepreneur, guide, and to so many a teacher of life lessons, as education was extremely important to her. She was always willing to open her door to her family, personal friends and those outside of her family. There were many who only knew her as “Grandma Angie.” One of her favorite things to do, with her daughter and granddaughters was to prepare a huge meal on a Sunday afternoon and allow them to invite whomever they wanted to come. Somehow there was always more than enough food, and often leftovers to send home with the college students her granddaughters invited. Her earthly challenges are now behind her and the struggle is over. She is with God now, looking down on us with a loving smile, bidding those of us who loved her so much to be strong and move on with our lives and “get on the good foot”. For she knows, in due time, and with God’s grace, she will see us all again.
Those of us who were blessed to have had her in their lives will miss her. However, we take solace in knowing that she is with God now, and has been reunited with her loved ones that preceded her arrival in heaven. She will be watching over us, waiting patiently for the day when she will see us all again.
