Angeline married Harvey Halla in 1954 and together they made their home on a farm north of Yankton. To this union, three sons were born: Gary, Gregory, and Grant. She worked hard and did an excellent job keeping everything all together. She was proud of her sons who completed military careers and followed into postal careers.
