Angela was a native of Fort Worth, a graduate of Paschal High School where in the 1950’s she drew its Panther mascot. In the 1960’s she drew technical engineering parts for General Dynamics. In the 1970’s her very large “Candyland” mural was on longstanding display at Cook Children’s Hospital. In the 1980’s many were motivated to shop after seeing her hand drawn, half page commercial ads for Monnig’s Department Store in the Star-Telegram. In the 1980’s she also drew covers for the First UMC Single’s Bulletin. All of the time, she drew and painted just for the joy of it.
She was a devoted wife to her dear husband, Frank, and they enjoyed 28 years of laughing and enjoying life together. They met in their retirement years and were living life to the fullest 24/7 and especially enjoyed trips to Vegas and meals with friends and family.
The family would like to thank Angela’s doctors and compassionate nurses at the Baylor Scott and White Vitas Hospice for their care.
Angela is preceded in death by her beloved daughter, Leigh Ann Pomykal; brother, E.W. Anderson, Jr.; and parents, E.W. Sr. and Ann Anderson.

Keith Pomykal of Dallas, Curtis and Idela Pomykal of Longview and Craig and Chris Pomykal of Fort Worth; loving step-son, Gerard Mansfield of Fort Worth; beautiful granddaughters, Hannah and Rebekah Pomykal; grandson, Justin Pomykal; treasured nephews, E.W.
