  1. Angela, when I think of you I think of your smile, your warmth, your generosity, your love and laughter. All the best things, the real things, that we can share with one another.
    I feel so fortunate you came into our lives, a huge thank you to fellow artist Bob Leopold. Little did I know what a treasure you would become, not only to me, but also to my family. We all shared the love of our little dog “Theo”, with your beautiful mother too, and food. It was life at its very best. I loved your stories, and oh my gosh, your fantastic cooking! Especially… pasta and beans, zucchini, stuffed Fresno peppers, and more, and cookies…all made with the best ingredient of all…your love.
    You changed our lives by doing and being the best a person can be, so we take those lessons with us to share with others.
    We will miss our Angel Angela for the rest of our lives. Thank you for touching all of us so deeply. Diana, Rick, Trevor, Theo, and Millie.

  2. Kiki and Family. My deepest condolences on the passing of our beloved Aunt Angie. I cherish the memories of growing up with your family, comic books, 45 records then albums and visits to the farm and of course Aunt Angie working her magic on the Weber BBQ with chicken!
    So Blessed to have had you all in my life.

    With much love and respect,


  3. What a joy to have had you be a part of my life in these past few years. Your kindness,
    Caring and concern were a blessing dear Angie. I shall miss our chats, our little visits and our Thursday Subway Deli dates!

    God bless you always, rest in eternal peace and know how much you meant to my son’s and to me. Lovingly, Jackie

  4. She was a very sweet woman. I enjoyed her company. Now she is with Jesus for her eternal life

  5. Angela was such a strong , hard working, witty , and one of a kind woman. She was not only the mother to my best friend Karen in highschool, she was a good friend to my mother, Josephine Savocchi. I have wonderful memories of Angela growing up in our Northfield neighborhood. She was a caring, loving, no nonsense woman that I admired. She will not be forgotten, and I’m fortunate to have known her in my lifetime. God Bless her Beautiful soul in Heaven! Thank you Angela for your strength and love through the years. RIP ❤️🙏

  6. I have a memory of a time, it is dim and hard to communicate, but for the sake of my spirit it is a perfect memory. It is a house full of women: Angela, one or both of her daughters, her own mother and perhaps others. They fill the house with talk of their own memories, talk of Italian Cooking, Laughter and a Joy for the time they were sharing. I often feel like I’m on stage performing for others; I felt like this as a child too, but this place was a master class with a beautiful ensemble of characters who knew their craft. They practiced in Love, with knowing looks, and graciousness.
    I don’t recognize the house, I don’t remember the season or the occasion, but I do know that I was part of something special that day. A passion for life and family was on display and I’m grateful that I was able to capture even this partial snap-shot of it. I have many wonderful memories of Angie…
    I will miss and Love her!
    God bless her and her family
