In Loving Memory of Angela (Moran) Williams, Angela Williams traveled to heaven peacefully on Wednesday, January 6th, 2021 in Rohnert Park, CA. Predeceased by her father and mother, Mario and Concetta Norselli, brothers, Joseph and Anthony, sisters, Mae and Raymond Buonaugurio, Laura and Samuel Buonaugurio, Ida and Cosmo Capobianco, Mary and Samuel Petruso, Gilda Norselli, and Eleanor Geffert. She is survived by her sister Joanne and Roy Vinci Boas, her children: Laura Moran, Kathryn Moran Estines, John Moran, Robert Moran and Mary Moran Heller; her grandchildren: Monica Kelly, Jessie Moran, Lyle Moran, Marcel Moran, Mitchell Reddick, Tess Reddick, Bobby Moran, Ryan Heller, Britany Moran, Kate Heller, Maya Moran, Dylan Heller and great grandson Patrick Kelly Danyo, and many loving nieces and nephews. Angela was born in Rochester NY on June 21, 1934. She married Dr. William J. Moran in 1957 in Brooklyn, New York and had five children by age 30. She was a wonderful, loving Mother, who created beautiful, life-long memories for her children and grandchildren. She lived in Belmont for thirty years and moved to Northern California later in life. She believed that the nursing profession would be a wonderful way to express her love for God by relieving the suffering of others. She earned a bachelors degree and a Master of Nursing and became certified as a Clinical Licensed Nurse Specialist (CLNS) in psychiatric nursing. In 2006, Angela was honored as "Nurse of the Year" at her 50th class reunion from Elmira School of Nursing for her pioneering work with hospice patients suffering from HIV. She officially retired at 65, but she spent the next ten years as a full-time infant care nurse and doula. Angela shared her love and compassion freely with everyone she met, and said she never met a person she didnt find beautiful. Angela leaves this world a better place with a legacy of service, joy, love and compassion. Join us in celebrating her life by considering a donation to her beloved Sisters of St. Josephs.

My mom never met a person she didn’t find beautiful. After five minutes in her presence, you felt like the most important person on the planet. She was there for me at every challenging moment in my life. She instilled in us a love of people of life and of the world around us. She was a larger than life character that made life magical. She was serious, had a great justice sense and an insatiable intellectual curiosity, but she was also the funniest person I have ever known. She told the best jokes, but she was even funnier when she wasn’t trying to be. She loved Jesus and read the Bible every day of her life. She truly lived in imitation of Christ in her compassion to all people. I remember seeing that Compassion when I visited her at the HIV hospice, where she worked - all the patients lit up when she walked into the room as if she were their personal Angel(a). Her love lives on in all of us that she touched, and we are better for it. Sending all my love to everyone posting here and all the rest that knew and loved her. Her last words to me were, it’s been a great life, I’m going to see Jesus now See you later. Love you Mom and see you later...

I am so grateful for the outpouring of love and appreciation for our Mom. She was truly an inspiring person who taught me so much about service, compassion and social justice. She showed me how to appreciate and celebrate life at a young age. She would put all five us children into the station wagon to take explore all the greater Boston area had to offer including museums, music, historical landmarks. We loved the extended family she created for us in Belmont with the Johnsons, Gibsons, and many more while also keeping us connected to our loving and amazing cousins in NYC and Rochester NY. I was lucky enough to travel with my Mom and daughter Monica to Italy when she was 70, and experienced the joy of her singing all the old Italian songs with our extended family in Gaeta by the sea. May she continue to sing and dance with the Angels looking over us all from heaven. Love you Mom.

We have lost a ray of sunshine. I have so many memories for our almost 60 years as an extended family. So many places - Raleigh Road, Warwick Road, Common Street, Pleasant St, and the cape. I alternate between a smile and a tear. Mom has lost her "sister". Love goes out to all the Moran "kids".
