Angela Gwen-Gutierrez March 8, 1965 to March 2, 2023
Angela was born an optimist with an innate love for humanity. Her love and concern for others always put the interest and needs of others first. She makes it all about “you,” as her children will testify.
Angela loved life to its fullest. She invested in lifelong learning through education, seminars and as an avid reader of all things spiritual, natural and fitness. Angela read books from all perspectives on healing the body, mind, and spirit. Her knowledge spanned far eastern healing techniques and practices to western healing practices. She advocated for listening to the heart and body while using all that nature has to offer for healing. Angela worked as a dedicated mother at home and as a health advocate professional and women’s coach. In addition to her professional pursuits, Angela’s love and joy were felt by countless individuals through her community and church related service.
Although she could not find physical healing to cure her ovarian cancer, she felt healed in every other physical, emotional, and spiritual respect. Angela declared in her final draft of her last book, “ Despite never physically recovering from ovarian cancer I stand Fully Integrated and Triumphant in my life’s journey having HEALed on a level that transcends all physical limitations and finished my life with pure PEACE and JOY.” Angela left two nearly completed manuscripts that will be published posthumously under her pen name Angela Gwen.
Her family expresses gratitude to her many naturopathic and allopathic doctors, nurses, aids, and cancer advisors. Angela was considered by many caregivers as the ideal patient.
Angela’s family celebrated her life with her prior to her passing. Her cremated remains will be laid to rest under a freshly planted sapling Aspen tree where she will give back to Mother Earth for generations to come as she awaits her glorious resurrection in Christ when her spirit will join her perfected body never again to be separated.
Angela is survived by her husband Brian of nearly 37 years, her five children, Michael Gutierrez and his wife Emily, Amanda Mitchell and her husband Cody and their three children Alder, Oakley, and Goldie, Zach Gutierrez and his wife Sylvia and their son Elias, Jane Hope Gutierrez, and Faith Gutierrez as well as her mother Donna Horton and father Bart Horton, and all but one of Angela’s dear siblings.
