On October 13, 2022, Angeline “Angie” Comperda, loving wife, mother, sister and grandmother, passed away peacefully at home in Colorado Springs after a courageous and very private struggle with pancreatic cancer.
She is survived by Jerry Comperda, her loving husband of 51 years, their daughters: Jenny Comperda of Grass Valley, CA, and Kelly Bennett of Colorado Springs, CO; son-in-law, Marty Bennett; and her two grandchildren: Claire and Isabelle Bennett. Angie is remembered lovingly by her younger siblings: Kevin Sutor, Patricia Bingham and Beverly Sutor.
She was born in Chicago, IL to the late Stanley and Dolores Sutor on September 22, 1948. At Steinmetz High School she met the love of her life, Jerry, and she loyally stayed by his side as he got drafted for the army. They wed in 1971, built their life together in Streamwood, IL and later in Schaumburg, IL, where both her daughters were raised.
Angie was known as a generous, kind and compassionate soul who loved the simple things, such as spending time with her precious family and friends and traveling, especially cruises, and has been as far as the Caribbean and Alaska. Many fond memories were made in Mercer, WI at their cabin in the woods where family time was valued and there were as many laughs as there were mosquitos.
In 2008, she contracted the rare and incurable Guillain-Barré syndrome and nearly left this life behind. Due to her remarkable recovery, she was able to continue her loving nature, with the help of her family’s caregiving and support. In 2013 Jerry and Angie sold their house in Schaumburg and moved to Colorado Springs to be near their beautiful granddaughters and have enjoyed every minute of watching them grow up.
As so many can attest to, Angie made friends wherever she went and was always someone who generously loved deeply, and offered to help those in need, despite her own challenging health issues. She will be greatly missed by her loving friends and family and remembered in their hearts forever. We are sincerely grateful to the many friends who have given us support and comfort during this time of great loss, and throughout the decades of friendship.
Angie will be laid to rest at the Shrine of Remembrance in Colorado Springs. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Ray of Hope Cancer Foundation or the GBS/CIDP Foundation International.
