Angela Michelle Pickett

Angela Michelle Pickett, of Charlotte, known to all as Angie, slipped from earth to her heavenly home on January 23, 2022, at the age of 44. Angie was the much-loved daughter of Penny (Van Skike) Pickett and Garth David (deceased) and Mike Pickett.
Born October 30, 1977, Angie lived a full life: Special Olympics (ten different sports), work (21 years at Subway) and adventure (bus tours and vacations). She graduated from Charlotte High School in 1997, and from The Learning Center in 2003. Angie also participated in the Adult Handicap Program for 28 years.
Angie loved her family, the color purple, her teammates, her cats, and her American Girl dolls. She traveled to Chicago, New York, Minnesota, and on the internet to purchase 29 dolls which she lovingly cared for—they were her “girls.” Angie never met a stranger. She had a beautiful smile that she shared freely, leaving handprints on the hearts of friends of all ages. To know Angie was to love Angie.
Angie is survived by her mother, Penny; close aunt and uncle, Brynda Filkins of Charlotte and Nathan Van Skike of Vermontville; many other special aunts, uncles and cousins; honorary brother, Martin Fabrik; her father, Mike Pickett and his daughter, Chelsea; grandmother, Patricia Van Skike. She was predeceased by Garth David, aunt, Gretchen Van Skike-Campbell, boyfriend, Mike Malerba, and grandfather, Bryan Van Skike.
Visitation with the family will be held at Burkhead-Green-Kilgo Funeral Home, 206 W. Lawrence Avenue, Charlotte, on Thursday, February 3, 2022, from 4:00-7:00 p.m. A memorial service for Angie will be held at the First Baptist Church, 1110 S. Cochran Avenue, Charlotte, on Friday, February 4, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. A luncheon will follow at the church. Memorial gifts, if desired, may be made to the Charlotte Community Library in Angie’s name. Angie was a beautiful soul, given by God, who made the world brighter just by being here.
