Born Sept. 7, 1920, at Westside, Iowa, Angie Pauline was a daughter of Paul B. and Angie J. (Johnson) Freese. She spent her younger years in the Westside area and graduated from Westside High School in 1937. Angie then received a degree from St. Anthony School of Nursing. On Oct. 22, 1951, married Joseph G. Schwarzkopf at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Carroll. Following their marriage the couple made their home 9 miles northwest of Breda on the farm where Joe was born. Throughout her working career Angie was employed as a private-duty nurse for several local hospitals and worked at Carroll Medical Center before raising her family. Her last place of employment was at Twilight Acres Nursing Home.

In 1991, Joe and Angie moved to the Carroll community. In their younger years they enjoyed ballroom dancing and also spent many winters in Arizona. She enjoyed baseball as a result of Joe's strong persuasion and was an avid Cubs fan. Angie dearly loved her family. Her greatest joy was when all could be together for holidays or any other event that would bring all her kids home. She was a very active member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church, St. Anthony Nurses Alumni Association, St. Anthony Hospital Auxiliary and Breda American Legion Auxiliary.

Survivors include her children: Dan Schwarzkopf and his wife Rhonda of Grimes, Paula Papenfuss and her husband Kurt of LaCrosse, Wis., and Dick Schwarzkopf and his wife Jeannie of Wall Lake; five grandchildren: Joel Schwarzkopf, Matt Schwarzkopf, Nick Papenfuss, Jimmy Papenfuss and Laura Papenfuss; one sister: Bernice Sievers of Lake City; her in-laws: Lucy Brooks of Chicago, Philip "Chick" (Betty) Schwarzkopf of Adel, Catherine Schwarzkopf of Milwaukee, Wis., and Ruth Schwarzkopf of Carroll; as well as many special nieces and nephews.

Her parents and her husband Joseph preceded her in death.
