Angela Marie Van Ness, age 47, of Overland Park, KS, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017, at Liberty Hospital. Angela was born May 26, 1970, in Cameron, MO, to Jerry and Rhonda Sprouse.

Worth, TX and Kristen Van Ness of Omaha, NE; parents, Jerry and Rhonda Sprouse of Polo; sister, Janie Dyhouse (Tim) of Gladstone; nephews and niece, Evan, Clay and Amanda Dyhouse; grandmother, Ellen Sprouse of Smithville; and many aunts, uncles and cousins, all of whom loved her very much.

Cremation has been entrusted to Stith Family Funeral Home in Polo. A private memorial service will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to the Christ’s Cupboard Food Pantry in Polo or Show Me Christian Youth Home in LaMonte, Mo. An online guestbook may be accessed at
