Angela is a current member of SS. Anthony and Rocco Parish. She was a member of the former Christ the King Parish for more than forty years where she was a lector, CCD teacher, member of Altar and Rosary Society, and co-chair of the Annual Church Picnic.
She was a devoted wife incessantly supporting her husband Al’s school board campaigns and standing strong during his illnesses. She was a loving mother always busy as a Cub Scout Den Mother, Little League volunteer, President of the Schautz’s Teener League Women’s Auxiliary; and avid supporter of Dunmore High School’s PTA, athletic teams, and Crimsonettes and Twirlers. For twenty-three years Angela was employed at Mercy Hospital, Scranton, as the Front Receptionist and Volunteer Coordinator.
Angel was sweet and humble always putting her family before her own needs. She was faithful to her God and prayed the rosary daily. She loved her hometown of Dunmore and always enjoyed a delicious ice cream sundae!
The family is grateful to her dedicated and compassionate care-givers who are like family: Julie, Holly and Linda from HomeInstead. We also want to thank The Jewish Home of Scranton, Drs. James Sheerer and Ken Sebastianelli, and the staff and nurses at The Moses Taylor Hospital and Compassionate Care Hospice.
