Angelica Lynn Bennett Prendergast, born on February 26, 1998, in Iredell County, N.C., gracefully passed away on April 8, 2024, in Nashville, Tenn.

Angelica was of the Christian faith and attended Macedonia Baptist Church as a child and later on attended Zion Chapel. She was known for her dedication to helping others through her work in childcare for Autism Behavioral Support. Angelica was also a proud member of the United States Army, serving as a 27D, Paralegal Specialist, and was a qualified sharpshooter.

During her high school years, Angelica was involved in the JROTC program, which laid the foundation for her future military service. She had a deep love for the ocean and marine life, horses, crocheting, playing the piano, and spending time with children. Her compassion extended to her fur babies as she adored her dogs and cat.

Angelica’s impact on those around her was profound, leaving a lasting legacy of kindness and empathy. Her presence will be dearly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

She is survived by her loving husband of five years, Sgt. E5 Daniel Prendergast; devoted parents Doug and Krystal Presnell Bennett; caring brothers Jordan Bennett (Adriana) and Jermiah Bennett; doting maternal grandmother Patricia Eldridge Presnell; and paternal grandfather John Curtis Rucker Jr.; as well as cherished relatives Lacindria Bennett and niece Everleigh Mae Bennett.

Angelica was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather Billy Wayne Presnell; paternal grandmother Margaret Rucker; and aunt Martha Louise Bennett.

A visitation in memory of Angelica will be held on Monday, April 15, 2024, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Macedonia Baptist Church followed by the funeral service at 4 p.m. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. Rev. Dan Spears, Rev. Taylor Pennell, and Rev. Glenn Millsaps will officiate. Jordan Bennett, Joeseph Brown, Lane McHargue, Mark Worley, Jermiah Bennett, and Ken Bennett will serve as pallbearers.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to American Diabetes Association in Angelica’s name, PO Box 7023, Merrifield, VA 22116

May Angelica Lynn Bennett Prendergast’s soul rest in eternal peace as her gentle spirit continues to shine brightly in the hearts of those she leaves behind.
