A Model for Emily Post
ngela Susan Scheinberg epitomized class and grace, said her husband, Elliott Scheinberg.
"I would always tell her that I had no doubt that Amy Vanderbilt and Emily Post used her as their absolute guru before offering any advice on etiquette," he said.
The two had built a life together with their two daughters and Ms. Scheinberg's mother in a cozy house in Staten Island.
"One of the first things to win me over after we met was when I learned that her mother lived with her," Mr. Scheinberg said.
They met 13 years ago at a gym and had been together ever since. Ms. Scheinberg, 46, was a manager in the computer department at Empire Blue Cross and Blue Shield, on the 31st floor of 1 World Trade Center. "Angela and I had a storybook love and respect for each other," he said.
Ms. Scheinberg loved to cook for the holidays and each one required her to indulge her husband's idiosyncratic tastes.
"God, how she could cook," he said. "Although her holiday tables were visual delights that could have graced the covers of the finest journals, Angela would indulge me by allowing me to place a jar of peanut butter and jelly near my place setting because she knew that I loved peanut butter and jelly on hot turkey breast."
