Angela Woods Frymire
Angela Woods Frymire
Class of 1981
Passed Nov 18, 2013
Angela Woods Frymire, known to most as Angie, died early Monday, Nov. 18 at age 50 surrounded by family and friends. Angie was born March 4, 1963, and was raised in Ashland, KY by parents John Wesley Woods III and Margaret Best Woods.

Angie graduated from Paul G. Blazer High School in 1981. She attended Centre College in Danville, KY, where she served as executive vice president, treasurer, and reference chairman for Delta Delta Delta Sorority and news editor for The Cento. Angie was a member of Omicron Delta Kappa, the economics honor society and also sang second soprano with the Centre Singers. She graduated in 1985 with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a minor in economics.

Angie was married in Ashland, KY in July 1985 to John Marlowe Frymire of Madisonville, KY, son of Richard and Phyllis Frymire.

Angie worked in banking until the birth of her first child. She then made her children her full time job, a choice she never regretted and her children appreciate to the fullest.

In her free time, Angie enjoyed reading, the daily crossword, needlepoint, playing and watching tennis, and cheering on the Kentucky Wildcats no matter the season. She was an active member of Throne of Grace Community Church and always took joy in giving to others. Angie’s faith was of utmost importance to her and throughout the years she served on the leadership team for Community Bible Study and played an active role in the church.

All that knew Angie will remember her bravery as she fought breast cancer in recent years. They will remember her constant faith in Christ. And they will never forget the way she gracefully and continually loved and cared for her friends and family over many seasons.

Preceded in death by her natural mother Margaret Elizabeth “Betsy” Woods Carter, Angie is survived by her parents, John and Margaret Woods of Louisville; husband, John Frymire of Louisville, brother, Robert Lowery Woods of Kokomo, IN, daughters, Marlowe and Margaret Frymire and son, John Wesley Frymire, all of Louisville.

Visitation will be Friday from 4-8 PM at Louisville Memorial Gardens Funeral Home East, 11601 Ballardsville Rd. A memorial service celebrating Angie's life will be held Saturday at 11 AM at Christ Church United Methodist. Memorial donations may be made to Samaritan’s Purse, Throne of Grace Community Church, or Gilda’s Club.

Notes from her friend Beth on Facebook. Angie Woods Frymire was voted most likely to succeed for the class of 1981 and she did just that. She raised 3 wonderful children, handled her illness with grace, and remained true to her God! I spent many nights at Cogan street for sleepovers. We laid out in a certain spot at Breezeland and listened to Aternoon Delight on a tiny transitor radio. She got me involved in The Ramey Review for charity. We muddled through Miss Jayne's AP English and Mr. Trabant's Political Science class together. I watched the Derby at a prom party at her house one year. I have notes from her tucked into my Bible. She fixed me up with the first boy I ever went steady with, her brother Lowery. I am a better person for having the privledge of having known her. I take comfort in knowing that she is now without pain and that my Mother was there to greet her.

Plane crash victim remembered as outgoing, full of life
By BOB WITHERS and DAVID E. MALLOY - The Herald-Dispatch

HUNTINGTON -- Highly motivated. A really fine young man. Well-liked.

Such were the words of praise offered Tuesday by those who knew Chip Lampe, one of the three people killed in Sunday?s air crash in Lawrence County, Ohio, and a former resident of Ashland.


Charles H. Lampe, 22, of Lexington, killed in Sunday's plane crash
Charles Hayden "Chip" Lampe, 22, was a sophomore theater major at the University of Kentucky when he died with his girlfriend, Ginny M. Young, 20, of Willow Wood, Ohio, and her father, Dr. Michael Young, 53, of South Point, Ohio, when their single-engine Grumman Traveler crashed and burned at Lawrence County Airpark.

"Chip didn?t know a stranger. He lit up a room when he walked in," said his mother, Betsy Lampe, a former Ashland resident who now lives in Lexington.

Betsy Lampe said her son was born in Louisville, but lived in Boston, Montreal, Washington, D.C., and Ashland. He spent a year with Up With People after he graduated from high school. He had also spent time in San Francisco studying screenwriting and editing.

"He loved sports," she said. "He loved to play the piano?. He wanted to be a playwright. He had no doubt he would be famous some day."

She described his girlfriend, Ginny Young, as a "beautiful, intelligent young lady. They both had such promise. It?s a terrible loss."

Chip Lampe?s many friends are also devastated following the crash.

Holly Hughes, a 1999 Blazer graduate, said she and Lampe "were like best friends. We told each other everything. He was full of life in every way."

She and her friend, Megan Green, spent Saturday night -- the night before the crash -- with Lampe and his girlfriend at the 20th Street Bar and Grill in Huntington.

"Everyone is just devastated by this," Hughes said. "It hasn?t really sunk in yet. I keep wanting to pick up the phone and call him."

Andy Ballash, principal of Paul Blazer High School, who was assistant principal when Chip Lampe attended, still remembers the young man with a promising future.

"I found Chip to be a highly motivated student," Ballash said. "He was well-liked and well-received by his peer group. He was a strong leader for us."

Lampe loved playing soccer, beginning in middle school and continuing through high school.

"He constantly worked on his game, and got better and better because of his work ethic," says Blazer Soccer Coach Frank Sloan. "By the time he was a senior, he was our second-highest scorer. He was one of the reasons we went to the regional finals."

Sloan says he saw Lampe four or five times after graduation.

"He had gotten into acting, which he really enjoyed," Sloan says. "He turned into a really fine young man."

Lampe spent some time with WorldSmart?s Up With People Program, which involved travel, learning, performance and service.

"He really enjoyed it," Sloan says. "I think it had a lot to do with him going into the field of acting."

Lampe, a native of Louisville, was a son of Stanford H. Lampe of Louisville, a spokesman for the Kentucky Department of Education in Louisville and a former spokesman for Ashland Inc. in Ashland and Covington, Ky. He had attended The Academy of Art in San Francisco, Calif., and was a member of the South Ashland United Methodist Church. In addition to participating in theater, he also was a member of UK?s ice hockey team.

Lampe?s funeral service will be conducted at Kerr Brothers Funeral Home, 463 Main St. in Lexington, at 10 a.m. Friday, with burial in Lexington Cemetery. Visitation is scheduled at the funeral home from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday.

Additional survivors include his grandmothers, Helen Schmidt and Phylinda A. Lampe, both of Lexington; and several aunts, uncles and cousins.

Memorial contributions are suggested to the UK Theatre Department, 114 Fine Arts Building, Lexington, KY 40506.
