Ms Angela was always kind to me- I worked in Watergate Salon for 17 years. Her cooking was phenomenal and very Italian. What always make me laugh, when I think of her, is she was always having a hot flash- she must have been in menopause for 20 years. She loved and adored her Grandkids and they are blessed to have known her for such a long time.
Sweet Ms Angela RIP.
