Mrs. Angeline Bolden Loney was born on Aug. 14, 1913, to Maggie and Henry Bolden and is the seventh of 10 children. She departed this life on Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017, at her residence, 3130 Loney Lane, Dalzell.
She attended Rosewell Providence School in Dalzell. She accepted Christ at an early age and was a lifelong member of Hopewell Baptist Church. Her church roles were choir member, assistant superintendent of the Sunday School, president of the pastor's aide ministry for 33 years, and she was the mother of the church.
Angeline married Marcus McKinley Loney Jr. and shortly afterward they moved to New York, where she worked for 15 years in various capacities before returning to Dalzell. She continued to work in various jobs and even spent a short time as a beauty shop technician.
Her husband died on April 16, 1979. They had been married for more than 46 years.
During her younger years, Angeline took missionary work seriously as she would energetically drive throughout the community taking care of the sick and shut in. As her health failed, she continued her missionary work by writing letters and making phone calls.
Angeline was the oldest member of Catchall Chapter #315 Order of the Eastern Star, PHA, where she held the Point of Esther for many years.
Angeline attributed her longevity to working hard and having faith in God. Her favorite song was, "We've Come This Far By Faith," and her favorite Scriptures were Proverbs 3:5-6, Phillippians 4:13 and Romans 8:31.
She is survived by a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Angeline was preceded in death by her parents, husband and nine siblings.
