JOANN STANGEL [Cumberland]

CUMBERLAND — JoAnn Stangel, 80, of Cumberland, passed away on Thursday, March 28, 2013, at Allegany Health, Nursing and Rehab Center

JoAnn was born in Cumberland, on Sept. 13, 1932, to John Joseph Stangel and Katherine Elizabeth (Cheshire) Stangel. 

She was a 1950 graduate of Allegany High School, 1952 graduate of Potomac State College, and 1954 graduate of West Virginia University.

JoAnn taught at Beall High School in Frostburg, and moved to Ardmore, Okla. to teach, then moved to Dallas, Texas, and continued her teaching career, and then returned to Cumberland and taught at Allegany High School from 1964 to 1973. 

While at Allegany High School in 1965 she formed the award-winning Arrowettes Drill Team. She modeled the team after the Kilgore College Rangerettes where she had apprenticed with Gussie Nell Davis. She took great pride in this group; they numbered 70 plus and performed by request throughout the United States. 

In 1990, after teaching for several years in Pittsburgh, Joanne returned to Bishop Walsh High School and taught from 1990 to 2012. Another great source of pride and success was her involvement with the Spartan Theatre at Bishop Walsh School.  Stangel’s love for theatre started at a very young age, encouraged by her parents. Her father built a stage for her in their garage. She brought musicals to the stage at Bishop Walsh for over 20 years and loved every minute of it. 

JoAnn is survived by her brother, Gregory J. Stangel I of Cresaptown. 

A memorial Mass will be held at Bishop Walsh on April 17, 2013 at 10 a.m.

Scarpelli Funeral is assisting the family with arrangements.
