Angela (Bang) Zurn died unexpectedly Thursday, June 20, 2013, at Wyoming Medical Center in Casper. She was 34 years old.
Her memorial service was at 4 p.m. Monday, July 27, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Casper.
Angela Bang was born Sept. 19, 1978, the daughter of Rod and Kathy Bang.
In 2002, she had a daughter, Lauryn, and she graduated from Gillette College in 2004 with a nursing degree. After graduation, she traveled to South Africa with other registered nurses who also graduated at the top of their class. She traveled to New Orleans to assist with disaster relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina, and she worked as a labor and delivery nurse at Campbell County Memorial Hospital until 2005 when she moved to Casper.
She met Kevin Zurn and his son, Riah, in 2005, and Angela and Kevin married on Aug. 5, 2006. The couple had three children together, Connor, Adalyn and Maleah.
At the age of 12, Mrs. Zurn dedicated her life to her god Jehovah as one of Jehovah's Witnesses.
Her family said she loved her family with all her heart and was the best mother, wife, daughter, granddaughter, aunt and sister anyone could ask for. She never stopped caring for those around her and was always there to lend a helping hand or listening ear, and she will be remembered for her quick wit and contagious laughter.
She is survived by her husband, Kevin Zurn; children Riah, Lauryn, Connor, Adalyn and Maleah of Casper; parents Rod and Kathy Bang of Gillette; maternal grandparents Delbert and Patricia McOmie and Phylis and Swede Quam of Lander; sister Cheri Bryan and her husband Josh and their children Paige, Alexis, Keyana, Rayna and Kayde of Gillette; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Lyle and Margaret Bang.
