Angela ‘Angel’ Collum, 46 of Jaffrey died peacefully while surrounded by her family on April 29, 2016 at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA after a long and courageous battle.
She was born on August 5, 1969 in Peterborough, NH, the daughter of David and Judylee (Pelletier) Quimby. She was a 1988 graduate of Conant High School.
Angel followed in her grandfather’s footsteps and was a beloved school bus driver in Jaffrey and Rindge for over 13 years until her health prevented her from working.
She loved her family and was devoted to them in every way. Angel knew her life would be limited by her illness, so she lived each day to the fullest and did all she could possibly do while she could. Angel enjoyed anything with Mickey Mouse and liked playing Bingo. She had a wonderful sense of humor, visited the ocean every chance she could and always loved her pets.
In addition to her parents, David and Judy Quimby of Rindge, Angel is survived by her 3 children, Kaitlin Collum of Orono, Maine, Catherine Collum and David Collum, IV, both of Jaffrey; her brother Ryan and his wife Tiffany Quimby of Fitzwilliam and their sons Logan and Marcus; her former husband and friend, David J. Collum, III of Acton, MA; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and countless close friends.
