Angeline Agnes Pavek was born the daughter of John W. and Mary (Adams) Pavek on Jan. 25, 1923 in Waubun. Angie, along with her nine brothers and sisters, was raised on a farm southeast of Waubun. She went to school in Waubun, graduating with the class of 1942. Angie attended Bemidji State University and later worked as a cashier for Blanding Department Store in Detroit Lakes.

On June 29, 1950 Angie married Edwin Blomseth and the couple made their home in Mahnomen. Angie worked as a bookkeeper for B.C. and later for Solar Gas Company, both in Mahnomen. In the early 1960s, she became employed with Mahnomen County Human Services as a social caseworker. She continued in this position until her retirement in 1989.

After Ed's death in 1992, Angie remained in her own home until 2007, when failing health caused her to move to the Mahnomen Health Center Nursing Home.

She had beautiful gardens in the summer, but tenderly cared for her flowers all year round.
