Angie Abbatello 1929-2010 SHAFTSBURY Angie Abbatello (a/k/a Angeline May Abbatiello), a resident of Old Depot road in Shaftsbury, passed away peacefully Saturday October 23, 2010 at her home.

Angie received her education in East Meadow schools, graduated from Hempstead High School in Hempstead, L.I. and Packard Junior College in New York City. Her career started as an Executive Secretary on MADEMOISELLE Magazine in New York City, then Executive Secretary to the President and Publisher of EVERYWOMAN'S Magazine in New York City. She was assistant to the General Manager of the Garden City hotel, an historic landmark in Garden City, Long Island. Before retiring she was employed at Avis, Inc. for 15 years, starting as Administrative assistant to the Senior Vice President of General Councel; became Executive assistant to the Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. She was appointed to assistant Secretary of Avis, Inc. and Avis Rent A Car System, Inc. In this position she traveled extensively through Europe and the United States. In 1985 Angie moved from Long Island to Shaftsbury, Vermont to the home of her parents bought in 1955. She became actively involved in the community, with the town Republican Committee (their newsletter THE TRUNK LINE was her idea). She was Vice President of the Board of Trustees of the Shaftsbury Historical Society. Through her efforts the historic site marker was installed at the Governor Jonas Galusha Homestead in 2006.

In 1993 she was elected Lister and served in that position for 17 years, making her the longest serving Lister in the town. She enjoyed that distinction as well as the position itself.
