Angie Bell, a Colorado Springs resident and mental health counselor, died unexpectedly due to complications from COVID, at the age of 47. Angie is survived by her mother Susan Bell Smith and stepfather Ken Smith of Sun City West, AZ, and Colorado Springs; her brother Alexander Bell and his children Madison, Morgan and Macy Bell of Fort Collins; her aunt Patty Howley and cousin Kaitlin (Nick) Barrett of Colorado Springs; her aunt Penny (Gary) Streich, and cousin Michael (Jessica) Streich; her cousin Michael Risinger, also of Colorado Springs; her step-sister Stacy (Bill) Austin and nephew Grayson, of Bainbridge Island, WA.
Angie is predeceased by her father, Ray Bell.
Angie graduated from Air Academy High School. She received a B.A. from UCCS (1997) and a M.A. in Community Counseling from the University of Northern Colorado (2003). She owned Angie Bell Counseling, LLC.
Angie was devoted to her family and friends. She dearly loved and advocated for her nieces Maddie, Morgan and Macy Bell. Angie was a compassionate friend to many, problem-solver, and counselor who took on troubled clients, many of whom were military veterans suffering from PTSD. She was also involved with the State Domestic Violence Summits. She was an animal lover and leaves behind her beloved dog Dublin and cat Netiryi, both of whom were rescue pets. Dublin served as her right hand as he "worked" with her in the office and provided comfort to her many clients during their counseling sessions. Because of Angie's love of animals, her family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region to help provide care for local animals in need. Donations may be made in Angie Bell's name to: https://www.hsppr.org/donate/tribute-giving/

A private Celebration of Angie Bell's Life will be held by the family at a later date.
