Age 81, Noreene passed away at home on February 2, 2021. She was born in Kalamazoo on June 7, 1939, the daughter of the late Larry and Dorothy (VanGennep) Angel. If you knew Noreene, you knew she dedicated her life to her family and above all else, they came first. Having two sons at a young age, she worked multiple jobs to make sure her family was taken care of. Never did she think of herself first. Noreene also touched many, many lives outside of her family and it was well known that she would help anyone at any time. Noreene worked until she was 80 to make sure she was positioned to help when and where she could. Her two sons and family were truly blessed to have the best mom and grandma anyone could ask for. Noreene is survived by her sons, Larry Bailey and Mike (Brenda) Bailey; granddaughters, Mallory and Kelsey Bailey; great-grandson, Connor Cook; brother, Bill (Uma) Angel; former daughter in-law, Kelly Kenney; cousin, Alice Dunfield; special friends, Dorothy Martin, Shirley Smith, Irene Fletcher, Sharon Butcher, Ursula Morey and Donna Heighton and the father of her children, Don Bailey. Besides her parents, Noreene was preceded in death by her brother, Don Hentschel; her husbands, Jim Walsh and Paul Crouch; and her grandson, Michael Bailey, who was her pride and joy.
