Mar 17, 1921 - Apr 06, 2016
Marjorie Sutterlin Angell, 95, died in her sleep on Wednesday, April 6, at Salemtowne. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, April 16, at the Smith Saal at Salemtowne. The family will receive friends there immediately after the service.

Born on March 17, 1921, Marjorie was the daughter of the late George Johannes and Gertrude Walters Sutterlin of Louisville, KY. She was a graduate of the University of Louisville School of Music, where she also did graduate studies. She taught violin, piano, and orchestra and played

In 1956, she and her husband, the late Dr. John William Angell, moved from the old Wake Forest campus to Winston-Salem, where Bill was a professor in the religion department. Marjorie taught violin and strings classes there and for 48 years played joyfully in the Winston-Salem Symphony.

She also taught violin and piano at their home on Belle Vista Court, where she enjoyed entertaining Wake Forest and symphony friends. Charter members of Wake Forest Baptist Church, Marjorie and Bill were active in many of its programs, including Meals on Wheels.

She is survived by two sons, John Angell and wife, Becky, of Greensboro, and George Angell and wife, Ann Evans, of Baltimore; four grandchildren: Eoin Angell of Greensboro; Lia Johnson, husband, Randolph, daughter, Orla, and son Rafe, of Shawnee, OK; Conor Angell, wife, Kerri, son Elias, and daughter, Miriam, of Upland, IN; and Sam Angell of Philadelphia.

Marjorie Angell was grace and patience to my imperfect piano student 8-year old self. And, she gave me a gift that I still use every day. I think of her often when I sit down to play.

I want to offer my condolences to the entire Angell family. Many years ago Mrs. Angell was my piano teacher. Also, I grew up going to Wake Forest Baptist Church. My grandparents knew Mrs. Angell's parents in Louisville (I assume it was because of the Seminary where my grandparents were students). You are in my thoughts and prayers. '

I have always admired the beautiful and talented neighbor, friend and violin teacher of my daughter. We lived very close to the Angell family and the boys were friends of my children. Marjorie's ever sweet smile and talent amazed me and I was so grateful for her playing at my husband Jon's memorial service. We will always be grateful.

What wonderful memories of Ms Angell! She was my piano teacher and with great style. Also wonderful as my friend, John's mother. Loved to see and hear her in the orchestra. My prayers to the family who were so fortunate to have her as a mom.
