Mrs. Dusheke lived her entire life in Jefferson City, MO except for brief periods at Centertown, MO after she was born and Lexington, MO after her husband died. As a high school graduate, she didn’t have a career, but had a most interesting work history as she was employed at a large variety of businesses all over Jefferson City. Early employment was at F.

She worked several years at the Department of Agriculture in data processing and for the State Auditor’s Office, as part of an audit team, working in many state offices including the Departments of Health and Revenue to name a few. In the seventies, she did the payroll at Charles E. Still Hospital. She retired from Scholastic, Inc. Office where she worked at various positions. She always said, “I never got a college degree, but I got an education because of my varied work history.”
A member of St. Peter Catholic Church, she was a devout Catholic and was a member of St. Peter Ladies Sodality, St. Ann Quilters, St. Peter Prayer Line and the Ave Maria Rosary Group. She participated in Perpetual Adoration for many years, and most recently, was a Prayer Angel.

Angie enjoyed many interests and activities over the years including sewing, crochet, embroidery, quilting, flower gardening, genealogy, painting, stamp and postcard collecting and traveling. She enjoyed special friendships with her card club and enjoyed celebrating anniversaries with four other couples who were married on the same day in Jefferson City.
