Angi was born on August 6, 1965, in Muscatine, the daughter of Don and Kathryn (McKay) Kiser. She attended Muscatine High School and in her younger years she enjoyed playing softball and swimming. She married Dennis Bermel in 1986 – they later divorced but had two children together.

Angi lived a life full of love, friendship, and adventure. She was known for her sense of humor and big personality. She was a proud bus driver for Muscatine School District for many years and worked at the Muscatine Y in the aquatics department for many years. In recent years, her passion was her pets and her family. Throughout her adult life, she always had dogs and cats who were beloved to her. She also enjoyed spending time outside – especially being near the river.

Angi is survived by her partner, Rhonda Buell; daughters, Beth Sharff and husband, Brian, of Urbandale, and Mindy Jones and husband, Cory, of Kokomo, IN; grandchildren, Landon Sharff and Emma Bermel; sister, Carol Anderson and husband, Pete, of Columbus, GA; and nephews, Michael (Samantha) Anderson, Stephen (Danae) Anderson, and Paul Anderson, all of Georgia; her stepfather, George Branson, of Keokuk, IA; step siblings, Gregory (Heather) Branson, Jeffrey Branson, and Gwyn Branson, all of California; and seven step-nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Kevin Kiser.
