After graduation, Angilee taught six years at area one-room school houses. On May 6, 1945, Angilee was united in marriage to her high school sweetheart, Galen R. Neher. The happy couple moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where Galen worked for Union Wire Rope Company. In 1946, she and Galen purchased forty acres that was previously owned by Galen’s grandfather. Later they sold that farm and bought their present farm, eight miles northwest of Mountain Grove. Angilee and Galen had one son, Stan, and one daughter, Karen.

She received her Bachelor of Science in Education with a minor in Art in 1976 from SMSU in Springfield, Missouri, with honors of Summa Cum Laude and earned a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education in 1981. Angilee enjoyed teaching sixth grade at Mountain Grove Elementary School. She retired from teaching in 1989.

Angilee was an excellent seamstress. She also made beautiful cakes for all occasions. Angilee loved to draw and paint, always working to improve with each piece of art. She loved to cook family recipes and do crafts, home décor, and holiday party planning. Angilee was a perfectionist and an inspiration to everyone around her.
