On November 9, 2003, ANGELA JANTJE LYMBERG (nee Trip) ascended to her heavenly home. She was born Engeltje Jantje Trip on November 1, 1913 in Groningen, Holland, the ninth child of Hinderika Munneke and Geert Trip. In 1918, the family moved to Hull, England, where she was raised. In 1933 she married Bartholomeus Lijmberg and returned to Holland. She survived the German occupation of Holland during WWII. In 1947 she immigrated to Baltimore, MD, where she resided for the next 55 years. She was very active in Church and her community, involved with Civil Defense, Scouting, and the Ladies Civic League. She was involved in several churches in the Baltimore area, Armistead Gardens Presbyterian, Joppa Gospel Tabernacle, Northeast Baptist Church, Central Christian Assembly and New Life Assembly of God. She loved the Lord and spreading His word, through her book and card ministries at various churchs and visiting nursing homes and shut-ins in the community. She was a member of the Maryland Bible Society, and a family at the Christian Book Store on Charles Street in Baltimore. One of her most cherished memories was meeting Corrie Ten Boom at the Mayor's Prayer Breakfast, in Baltimore. Corrie was the author of numerous books, most notably "The Hiding Place", the story of Corrie and her family's internment in the concentration camps after hiding Jews in Holland during WWII. In October 2002, she moved to Mechanicsville, VA to be with family.

Numerous family members (nieces, nephews and cousins) and friends in Holland, England, Norway, Canada and the US also survive her. She was the last surviving sibling of 14 brothers and sisters.
