Angie was the wife of preach­er Ed­win Will­ard Chap­man, and mo­ther of three child­ren.

She helped her hus­band co­ver sev­er­al rur­al cir­cuits of the Free Me­thod­ist move­ment, and as­sist­ed on ev­an­gel­ism tours. in 1866, she and her hus­band were work­ing in Spar­ta, Mi­chi­gan, and helped found the first Free Me­thod­ist Church in Grand Ra­pids, Mi­chi­gan, around that time. She pub­lished her first hymn, Thou Shalt Rest at Eve, in 1882.

About 1888, fol­low­ing an ev­an­gel­is­tic tour of Kan­sas, they moved to Lin­coln Town­ship, Is­a­bel­la Coun­ty, Mi­chi­gan. Dur­ing the next few years, An­gie wrote se­ve­ral hymns, most of which were pub­lished af­ter her death.

Her daugh­ter Ad­a­belle Chap­man Dil­la­baugh pub­lished a book of her own po­ems, Com­fort and Cheer; on pag­es 76 and 77, she in­clud­ed Mo­ther’s Un­fin­ished Hymn.
