Angela was so happy being around her family & friends.  She loved flowers, spending time in the kitchen (possessing an incredible talent for cooking), fashion/jewelry, and getting her nails done (her favorite color pink).

Her hobbies included passing time watching her favorite daytime soap operas, game shows like jeopardy, gardening and doing crossword puzzles.   She decorated beautifully for Christmas, Easter, and other holiday’s, and kept a beautiful home.  Hosting family and friends made her very happy.

Angela cherished spending time with her grandchildren.  Her home was filled with beautiful photos of her children and grandchildren which filled her with so much joy and happiness.  She was a very hard worker and spent 30 years at Lederle Laboratory in Pearl River, NY.

Angela was truly loved by all and will be highly missed. Always with a smile, she was vibrant and energetic throughout her life. She had a strong faith and belief in God, and sure she is brightening the heavens with her love.  She is our angel.
