Angela D. McIver

September 3, 1978 – August 26, 2023

Angela McIver, 44, of Omaha, Neb. died with her family and priest by her side on Saturday, August 26 at Methodist Hospital.

Angela Dawn McIver was born on September 3, 1978 to Matthew McKnight and Anita Spillers-Lowry in Fayetteville, Arkansas. She grew up in West Fork, Arkansas, where she was surrounded by much of her family. She was particularly close to her grandparents, Jerry and Carolyn Spillers. She was precocious with a zest for life at an early age. She was drawn to the arts, especially music, and had a love for nature and animals of all types.

While she held many occupations, from modeling and acting to health care administration, she most treasured her role as a mother. On March 6, 2009, Angela married Dusty Lee McIver in a private ceremony outside St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, Louisiana. With two older children, Noah Truelove and Emagen Truelove, Angela wanted to expand her role as a mother and had two additional children, Ramona McIver and Arthur McIver. She will be remembered most for her endless love for her children.

In 2017 she moved to Omaha, where she found her true home. While she loved to travel, she found peace and friendship in her adopted city. She was an active member of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, where she served on the board of directors (Vestry), Episcopal Church Women, St Monica’s Guild, and Vacation Bible School. Her passion was serving others through Sunday morning coffee hour.

Angela was truly fearless and was led by her heart. She will be truly missed by all those who came into contact with her.

She was preceded in death by grandparents, Betty and Norman Wasson.

She is survived by her husband of 14 years, Dusty; children: Noah Truelove, Emagen Truelove (Andrew Farley), Ramona McIver, and Arthur McIver; mother, Anita Spillers-Lowry; father, Allen Wasson (Missy); sister, Brooke Lowry; brother, Drew Wasson (Julie); grandparents Jerry and Carolyn Spillers; aunt Janice Harrison (Steve);  many nieces, nephews, and other loving family members and friends.

A visitation will be held at 10 a.m. followed by a memorial service at 11 a.m. on Thursday, August 31st at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, located at 925 South 84th Street Omaha, NE 68144.

    Saddened to hear of a nice soul taken to early. Will always remember the early years in high school when we all young and had our whole lives ahead of us. It’s a sad reminder that life is short and cherish all the time we have and not take it for granted. You won’t be forgotten Angela.
