Sister Angeline was born April 2, 1903 in St. Peters, Kansas and began her formal training for Benedictine life in 1930 in Mount St. Scholastica Convent in Atchison, Kansas. She and her sister, Marguerite, made their vowed commitments August 5, 1931, and in 1954 both participated in the solemn ceremony of Consecration of Virgins at Mount St. Scholastica.

Before returning to the priory late in 1975, Sister Angeline had done paraprofessional work in Kansas and in the Colorado schools of Walsenburg, Denver, and Colorado Springs.

 

At the time of her death she was survived by four brothers, Michael Richmeier, Grand Island, Nebraska; Fred Richmeier, Hays, Kansas; William Richmeier, Great Bend, Kansas and Clem Richmeier , Denver and John of Camp Springs, MD and a niece, Mrs. Florence Still of San Diego, California.
