On August 8, 2019, after a courageous battle with cancer, Angela Denise Druker, 44, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by so many of her beloved family and friends.
A service will be held at 2 p.m. Aug. 17 at Penn Yan Methodist Church. Immediately following the service there will be a celebration of Angela’s life at the Keuka Restaurant on Main Street in Penn Yan open to all those close to the Druker family.
Angela is survived by the love of her life, Chad Druker (husband), Sean Stape (son), Dylan Stape (son), Anthony Damien Druker (son) and Jessica Druker (daughter), who were the most important people of her life. She also leaves behind Vonda Knapton (mother), Lisa (Joe) Soucy (sister), and Tracey (Gary) Thompson; along with so many other aunts, uncles, nieces, cousins, and her grandson Brayden Johnson (Jessica). Angela looks forward to seeing her son Chad Druker, father Frank Knapton, grandparents Betty and Erwin Dinehart and Charlotte and Roy Knapton at the gates of heaven when she arrives.
Angela was born Nov. 14, 1974. She graduated from Penn Yan Academy and then continued her education at FLCC in their nursing program where she fulfilled her dream of becoming a Registered Nurse. Angela was a devoted and passionate nurse who cared deeply for helping others.
Aside from nursing, Angela’s number one passion was being a mother to her amazing children. She was not just a mother but a friend, a coach, a confident and their biggest cheerleader on the sidelines. Most importantly to her children, her home was always open and she became a mother to all of their friends.
Angela married Chad Druker on August 21, 2004. She loves the life they built together in Penn Yan. She loved being on the water, whether it be in the pool or on the boat on Keuka Lake. She loved spending time with friends and family and was the beautiful centerpiece that held us all together. Her smile, laugh, passion and love will be engraved into our lives forever. She will be deeply missed by all who know her.
