Angeline M. Jines

Angeline M. Jines, nee Callico, 87, of Swansea, IL, born Sunday, August 19, 1923, in E. St. Louis, IL, went to heaven on Thursday, January 6, 2011.

Angie was truly one of a kind! She loved her family, old movies and had a heart the size of Texas. She would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. She was a hard working Italian girl who always persevered. She was a loyal wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She was the only person in her family to graduate from high school and her name is etched into the cornerstone of St. Theresa's Academy.
