Angela Renee Buck was born April 17, 1958, in Waterloo, Iowa, the daughter of Richard and Lorene (Crowley) Buck.

In 1970 at age 12, Angela was selected as the Evansdale Junior Miss, was a violinist in the school orchestra and also was interested in horseback riding.

She married Dwight Shelton in Waterloo, and the couple later divorced. Family and friends described Angela as a woman with a big heart who loved her four children.

On Friday, August 11, 1995, two men hunting for turtles discovered a body in a ditch near a creek on North Pilot Grove Road in Black Hawk County, Iowa. The body lay just below a short bridge in a wooded area about one and one-half miles east of Independence Avenue in Waterloo and south of Dunkerton. Officials identified the body as that of 37-year-old Angela Renee Buck of Waterloo, and believed she had been dead not more than two days. An autopsy determined cause of death as a single gunshot wound to the chest.

Prior to her death, Angela had been attending school in Madison, Wis., to become a radio announcer.

She was survived by two sons: Damien Spooner of Evansdale and Nathaniel R. Shelton of Marshalltown; two daughters, Renee R. Shelton and Korene C. Shelton, both of Marshalltown; her father and stepmother, Richard and Nora Buck of Waterloo; two sisters, Alana R. Buck of Waterloo and Amanda M. Tix of Rochester, Minn.; two brothers, Aaron E. Buck of Layton, Utah, and Anthony R. Buck of San Luis Obispo, Calif.; and two stepbrothers, Jeffery and Daniel Schatz, both of Waterloo.

She was preceded in death by her mother.

Memorial services were held at 2 p.m. on Thursday at the Waterloo Memorial Park Cemetery chapel, with burial in the cemetery. Visitation was held from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Kearns, Huisman-Schumacher Chapel on Kimball and for an hour before services Thursday at the cemetery.
