Angeline Theresa Cangelosi quietly passed away following a brief illness, early on All Saints Day, November 1, 2019, in Sugar Land, Texas. Born January 15, 1924 in Highbank, Texas, Angeline was the seventh child of Joseph Falsone and Frances LaBarbera Falsone. She went to a one-room school in Highbank, and graduated from Reagan High School in Reagan, Texas. In 1941, after graduating, she married Anthony Charles Cangelosi and moved to Stafford, Texas. The couple was happily married for 57 years having three children. Together, Angeline and Tony owned and operated the Cangelosi Grocery Store in Stafford until 1974. After selling the business, Angeline briefly worked at Battlesteins in Sharpestown and later in the Fort Bend ISD Tax Office. Angeline was a devout Catholic, and a parishioner of Holy Family Catholic Church for over 75 years. She was active in many church organizations including Catholic Daughters of the Americas, Holy Family Altar Society, The Saint Joseph Altar Organization, and The Golden Friendship Group, holding office in many of them. She enjoyed ceramics, bowling, doing handwork, and reading. Angeline and Tony very much enjoyed traveling, especially cruising, with friends and family.

Angeline was a warm, loving, and outgoing person who enjoyed people. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. For many years, Angeline carried on the Italian family tradition of hosting family spaghetti dinners every Sunday at which children and grandchildren were expected.

Angeline was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Frances Falsone, her husband, Tony Cangelosi, two infant children, brothers Jim, Robert, Tony, and Joe Falsone, sisters Frances Reistino, Mary Dicorte, Benetta Wenning, and Rose Denena.

She is also survived by her sister, Camella Scamardo of Bryan, Texas, as well as numerous nieces and nephews throughout Texas.

As much as we are all sad and we know she will be dearly missed, we must all rejoice at Mrs. Cangelosi's life, her contributions, her sacrifices, her friendship and support. She is like a second Mother to us (Olga and Joe). She and Tony are the reason that we purchased and settled in Stafford back in 1975. She worked at Fort Bend ISD with Olga. Her counsel and love was extraordinary. She introduced Olga to the Catholic Daughters and helped us at the birth of our two boys. We will always keep her in our hearts and minds for her genuine goodness. We love the Cangelosi family and rejoice with them at Angeline being called up to heaven to be with Tony. Joe, Olga, Joey & Gabriel Longoria
