Angel Marie Lawson was born on November 15, 1978 to Greg Wriston and Cindy Lou Wriston. She gained her angel wings on May 17, 2021 in Bluefield, WV at the age of 42.

Angel is survived by her father Greg Wriston; her two sons Cody Newhouse and Jojo Butler; her oldest brother Michael Wriston and her youngest brother Aaron Wriston; along with extended family members that will miss her. Angel was welcomed to heaven by her paternal grandparents Glen Wriston and Goldie Lurabell Wriston; her maternal grandparents William “Sappy” Toney and Roxie Newhouse; her mother Cindy Lou Wriston; and her uncle William “Frankie” Toney, Jr. Angel had a bright smile that could light up any room.

She had friends and family that loved her dearly. Angel enjoyed collecting Raggedy Ann dolls. Her brother Michael has fond memories of them spinning in circles to the song “Super Freak” by Rick James when they were kids and thinks about it often.
