Angela M. Davey
Feb. 10, 1942 - Sept. 4, 2020
Angela Mary Davey, beloved wife of Don Davey, passed away peacefully at Providence Medical Center Friday, Sept. 4, 2020 at age 78.
Born in the Bronx, New York to Angela and Salvatore "Sal" Cosentino, Angela graduated from Saint Thomas Aquinas High School then started a brief career as an executive secretary. Wanting a more fulfilling career, Angela found work at New York Foundling Hospital caring for newborn babies. Angela married her high school sweetheart, Don in 1963, and moved to Portland, Ore., loving its relaxed pace. Angela enjoyed raising her two children in the Laurelhurst neighborhood and was an active member of All Saints Parish. Graduating from Portland State, Angela worked as part-time faculty for Portland Community College (former) "Steps to Success" program. Angela was passionately involved in many support groups making lasting connections. A fierce and skilled lover of thrifting and estate sales, yoga, gardening, reading, Scrabble and long walks, Angela, most importantly, loved helping everyone she encountered — whether they needed health, nutrition, or emotional support. Angela will be missed and treasured always.
Angela was preceded in death by her parents, Angela and Sal Cosentino; son, Christopher; sister, Sally and brother-in-law, Douglas. Angela is survived by her husband of 57 years, Don; daughter, Carolyn Schweitzer (John); grandchildren, William and George; sisters, Carmen (Len), Anne (George); brother-in-law, Andy and sister-in-law, Eileen, member of the Holy Union Sisters.
Services at Holman's Funeral Home will be private due to Covid-19 restrictions. Donations in Angela's memory may be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, LLS, lls.org

I remember the sweet spirit of Angela. She will be missed

Angela was so kind and special. Her insights helped shape my own Rest I peace. Thanking of you also Don.

It has been a long time since I saw Angela. She was one of the first people to welcome us to All Saints' Parish. I remember her sharp wit and joyful laugh. There is a photo in our family album that always brings her to mind. I had just had my third child and we had just moved to our home in Cedar Hills. She, heavily pregnant, and Don came over to see our new "digs". Our two sons, ages 2 and 3 disappeared into their bedroom and Angela noticed that it was very quiet there. We...
