Angie was a woman of great character, a kind and gentle soul. She began her career early in life as a portrait colorist before the days of color film, she had quite an eye for color and the ability to blend them to perfection. as she moved in her career she became a manager in retail and worked in this field until she retired from Burlington Coat Factory at the age of 80, still running circles around the " youngins" as she used to say. She was a woman of fashion, with her stylish colors, always having to have earrings to finish off the outfit and never leaving home without her lipstick even at the age of 99.
In her retirement of 19 years she continued her fashion sense and heading up multiple fashion shows, she was a director of senior exercise, the chairwoman of the flower committee and later became the captain of the napkin folding club, She was always busy, lending a hand, giving a kind word and most of all, sharing her love with each and everyone she met, no one was a stranger., even in the last days of her life, she found that spark to connect with each and every family member and friend. We were truly blessed by her presence in life and now by her spirit.
