Geraldine (“Jerry”) D’Angelo—dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother—passed away peacefully Jan. 16. She was just a couple weeks shy of what would have been her 94th birthday. She leaves behind a well-lived life full of family and fond memories.

Jerry was survived by five of her children—Barbara (Bob), Patricia (Mike), David (Lisa), Nancy (John) and Donna (Tom) as well as 11 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. Jerry was also “mother” and “grandmother” to David Sipos (Diane) and daughter Annabelle. She joins her husband, Richard D’Angelo, and her eldest son, Richard D’Angelo Jr., in death.

Jerry was known for loving her family above all else. She would spend hours at the sporting events of her children and grandchildren, always their biggest cheerleader. For her daughters, she would sew outfits for them—and for their dolls. Later, she would go on to sew outfits for her granddaughters’ Cabbage Patch Dolls, too.

She was always crafting. Jerry made beautiful and treasured Christmas ornaments for all her friends and family. Her creations live on the trees of many each year. She was often in the craft fairs at St. Elizabeth Seton Church where she donated much of her time and talent for years.

Her children and grandchildren remember fondly her cooking—she was a fantastic cook and an even better baker. Everyone she knew loved her desserts—her Christmas cookies were legendary among family and friends. She never missed a birthday, holiday or anniversary and was notorious for always sending cards to every member of her large family on special occasions.

Jerry was always on the go—she had to be doing something all the time. She spent much of her time reading, doing crossword puzzles, watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, cheering for the Arizona Cardinals and Buffalo Bills, and playing Scrabble. She was a Scrabble champion—and played the game into her nineties. Earlier in life, she traveled the globe, going to Hawaii, London, Germany, Austria and Italy, just to name a few locations.

Family was everything to Jerry, she opened her home to everyone and anyone—and anyone who crossed her doorstep was met with warmth and love.

She lived a full and beautiful life and will be missed by her loved ones dearly.
