Angela Deem was the one taking care of her ailing mom around the same time 90 Day Fiance was being filmed. The reality star had to juggle her time shooting for the series and looking after Glenda.

Unfortunately, Glenda’s health goes from bad to worse throughout the season. Angela Deem was forced to go home immediately after her wedding to Michael Ilesanmi in Nigeria. And on February 8, Glenda passed away.

90 Day Fiance star remains positive

Despite her loss, Angela Deem still remained positive for the sake of her family. The 90 Day Fiance celeb tried her best to move on from the painful experience. Although she’s doing well now, Angela admitted that she still “has not totally grieved” for Glenda Standridge.
