Angelica Marie (Hemming) Kostoff, age 32, gave herself over to the Lord after battling heart problems and other health issues. She left us in the early morning of April 13, 2013. Angel was born on January 2, 1981 in Mankato, to Danny L. and Debra R. (Harms) Hemming. She attended St. John's Lutheran School in Sleepy Eye. Angel was involved in cheer leading, piano and dance. She attended Minnesota Valley Lutheran and graduated from Sleepy Eye Public High School in 1999. She attended South Central College and received her nursing degree. During high school and college, Angel worked at various nursing homes and cleaned homes for the elderly. Taking care of others was her passion. She was a fun, loving, sweet person, always the funniest person at any get together. Angel married Stephen Kostoff on July 12, 2005. She gave birth to a handsome boy Xander Stephen and a few years later a beautiful girl Madisyn Rae. They moved to a home in New Ulm. From the day she was born she was my Angel sent from God with her big blue eyes. She was loving, caring and willing to do anything to help others. In doing so she didn't take care of herself. She has taken of piece of my heart with her and will be with me always. Angel "I love you, we all love you."
