She was the nicest person. I also grew up Westwood park and ran into Angela a wedding. We had a lot in common. I new other family Members and went to St. Emydius, same class as Angela!
God bless!

Angela was one of the easiest, my supportive, caring, and creative people I've ever worked with. She gave me a chance as a musician early in my life to teach others about music and she supported me unconditionally through the whole time I worked for her. She has also indisputably been a member of our extended family and we never thought of her any other way. The Peterson, DeAngelis, Fernandez, and Jerrold families love you so much, dear Angela and we pray that you are resting in peace now. We're so grateful for the decades of love, joy, delicious food (especially the Pesto!), and support you showed to us. Our sympathies go to Brianna and Family.

Goodbye and rest in peace Angela. Thanks for all the years of friendship, love, and too many good times at the River, Napa, and esp. here in the City to list! I'll remember and cherish them all. Everyone was a friend and even family to Angela--and no one loved or participated in a celebration of any kind like Angela. She was expansive in her cooking, throwing parties & cooking meals, her love of friends and family, and life in general. A great character and wonderful person. I'll miss you always Hoddy. Until we meet again.

I have fond memories of visiting and hanging out with her in the Latchkey Office. She was very vibrant and could talk to anybody. She had a wealth of stories and expressive sayings and bold opinions. She shared many great craft projects and activities, some of which I use in my classroom now. Rest in peace, Angela! Wishing family and friends the comfort of good memories.
