Angie Poole obituary, funeral arrangements

Published 1:37 pm Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Angie’s effervescent joy permeated everything she did. When she walked into a room, everything lit up, and we were all better people for being near her. She mothered her five children with a fierce and deep love. Angie was the one that her family and friends turned to first in times of sorrow and happiness because she had a great gift for listening compassionately and responding with generous care. Angie loved cheering on the Ole Miss Rebel football, baseball and basketball teams, and she was always up front and center.

Not only did Angie support Ole Miss and her kids’ athletic endeavors, she was also a great athlete herself. She woke up at 5 a.m. to work out with her husband, Austin, and she loved spending hunting season at her home away from home, Merigold Hunting Club.

After graduating from the University of Mississippi, Angie was a remarkable business woman and she ran her husband Austin’s dental clinic in Clarksdale, Mississippi. She played an active role in Tri Delta sorority, Junior Auxiliary and Grace Bible Church. Her energy has left an impact on many lives, and her love will always be remembered.
