The 90 Day Fiancé world is mourning a tragic loss today. This member of the community lost a long battle with cancer, and fans have been quick to offer condolences.
This loss has come at a particularly shocking time, since the couple was planning to marry around the same time. Our thoughts are with them at this time!
Unfortunately, this tragedy occurred in Angela Deem‘s family.
As fans know, Michael Ilesanmi and Angela were denied the visa to get Michael over to the US. This included plenty of tears from Michael, who – after the cake, the fights, the general abuse – STILL has not been able to get his green card.
Anyways, on a recent episode of the TLC show, Angela claimed that she wouldn’t move to Nigeria or marry Michael in Africa. The two have pushed back their wedding several times, and she claimed it was because she wanted her family and friends to be there, and they can’t afford to fly in for the wedding.
Of course, when they do get married, it can still take a year to 18 months to get approval for Michael to come to the U.S., and the two decided to take the plunge.
According to the invites, the pair were married in late January. There have been hints on her social media page that she planned a mid-month marriage, and now it appears the two decided to tie the knot.
But a big thing that was standing in the way remained the fact that Angela wanted her family to be present for the wedding, which is what makes this recent passing much more upsetting.
Yesterday, Angela shared her mother’s obituary on the couple’s Instagram page.
Mrs. Glenda Faye Standridge, age 77, of Hazlehurst, died Saturday, February 08, 2020 at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Jacksonville FL.
Mrs. Standridge was born November 25, 1942 in Okeechobee FL. [sic] to the late Roy Hull and the late Louise Crosby Hull. She was a Homemaker and of the Baptist faith. She is preceded in death by her husband, Marcene Standridge.
Survivors include her daughter, Angela Deem and son-in-law, Michael Ilesanmi of Hazelhurst; two sisters, Patricia Barrena of Florida and Christine Gibson of Warner Robins; two granddaughters, Scottie Deem and Skyla Deem; six great-grandchildren, Marlee Burch, Sidney Burch, Larry Burch, London Deem, Ana Deem and Ariah Deem.
