Angela Jean “Angie” (Morgan) Wenyon
August 13, 1960 - December 9, 2022
Angela Jean “Angie” (Morgan) Wenyon, age 62, of Newark, DE, passed away on Saturday, December 9, 2022.
A native of Thomasville, Alabama, she was born on August 13, 1960 to Nathan Terry Morgan and Geraldine Morgan, and the youngest of her siblings. Angie lived in Newark, DE for over 20 years. Prior to moving to Delaware, the family lived in Atlanta for several years. She graduated from the University of South Alabama. Angie went on to have a long career in real estate and mortgage lending. She worked for over 10 years at Wilmington Trust as a Banking Officer in the Residential Mortgage Lending department.
Angie lit up every room she entered. She had a zest for life and took the opportunity to learn about everyone she ran into, whether in the grocery store or on the street. Angie would make new friends just about everywhere she went! She deeply loved her friends and family and was always chatting on the phone or over text. She ended every conversation with “keep in touch.” Angie was very outgoing. Her husband tells the story of how they met when they were both working at Macy’s in Birmingham, Alabama. She would secretly leave notes on his car and always ask him to help with tasks at work, even when he was definitely not needed. Angie knew he was the one, and that the only way Leonard would date her was if she quit her job at Macy’s (as he was not going to break a rule about dating a co-worker.) So, she did just that, and let him know that she was going to work at a competing store so they could now date. He says, “I supported my wife’s choices, because I am one of them.”
Being a wife and mother was Angie’s greatest joy in life. She was very active in Sarah’s school communities, Immaculate Conception School (ICS) in Elkton and Padua Academy in Wilmington. Sarah’s numerous extracurricular activities included ice skating and rowing with WYRA. Angie was extremely proud of Sarah’s academic accomplishments and especially her involvement with the University of Delaware Emergency Care Unit. One of her proudest moments was seeing Sarah receive her white coat as a medical student at Thomas Jefferson University.
Travel was a passion of Angie’s. She loved exploring Europe and the Caribbean and also enjoyed visiting friends and family in Alabama, New England, Florida, and California. Angie had sun in her bones and would choose the beach over any other vacation – she never met a beach that she did not like! This summer, she was able to travel to England to see her daughter graduate with a master’s degree from St. Edmunds College at the University of Cambridge. She also enjoyed reading and cheering for University of Alabama football – ROLL TIDE!!!
Angie is survived by her beloved husband, Leonard; and loving daughter, Sarah Catherine; siblings, Sandra and Rick Moody, Eddie and Ginger Morgan, and Taylor and Angie Morgan; sister-in-law, Kathy and Dave Wallace; brother-in-law, Bob and Ronda Wenyon; sister-in-law, Karen Wenyon; brother-in-law, Arnie and Desiree Wenyon; sister-in-law, Colleen and Matt Lewis; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 11 am on Saturday, December 17, 2022, at Holy Family R.C. Church, 15 Gender Road, Newark, DE. Interment will be held privately.
