OAKLAND — Jen Angel, the beloved Oakland baker killed during a purse snatching last week, continues to give back even after her death by having her organs donated to potentially 70 different patients.
Angel, owner of Oakland’s popular Angel Cakes bakery, was mortally wounded Feb. 6 during a brazen daylight purse snatching in the parking lot of a Wells Fargo Bank branch. Police said a person broke her car window and snatched her purse; Angel then tried to retrieve her purse and became caught in the fleeing vehicle’s door, getting dragged more than 50 feet before falling off.
She suffered serious head injuries as a result of being dragged and was pronounced brain dead. She passed away on Feb. 9.
