Angela Consolo Mankiewicz Obituary
May 26, 1944 - March 7, 2017

Award-winning poet Angela Consolo Mankiewicz died March 7, 2017.

Born May 26, 1944 in Brooklyn, New York, she was "dragged" to Los Angeles as a ninth grader. It was a family move, and she always regretted it.

After graduating from California State University, Los Angeles, she had two distinct careers. The first was in Information Technology at United Merchants, Los Angeles Stock Exchange, Warner Brothers and Xerox Computer Services.

A financial windfall enabled her to devote herself to her second career, her true loves: poetry and theater. She was author of numerous published poems and poetry books, including "Cancer Poems," "An Eye," "Wired" and "As If." She received several awards for her poetry and was twice nominated for the Pushcart Prize in poetry. She also wrote a play that later became the libretto for "One Day Less," a one-act opera. Most recently, she had works published in the "Women's Review of Books" and "Voices de la Luna."

Angela married Richard Mankiewicz, the "luckiest man ever" in 1972, though they began their love in 1968. They moved to the Melrose district in 1978 and have been companions to several cats since then.

A memorial service will be held on May 26 of this year, where her ashes will join those of her beloved cats.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to in Angela's name.
