April 27, 1938 - August 30, 2023


Angela Diane Gattuso was born on April 27, 1938 and passed away on August 30, 2023.

To say that Angela, our beloved wife, mother, nanie, aunt, cousin, and friend, cared for us would be an understatement. Angela was the epitome of a loving wife for 60 years to Donald and a devoted mother to her children, David and Daniel, and their partners, Susan and Lisa. Being a grandmother was a source of immense pride and joy, and she cherished every moment with her grandchildren, Evan and Alec.

Angela was kind, selfless, and delightful. She was the foundation upon which her family stood and strengthened those around her. Blessed with an infectious spirit, Angela was the life of any gathering. Angela enjoyed reading, sewing, making sentimental crafts for family and friends, dancing and a sweet lemon drop martini or two.

Laughter and celebration always filled Angela’s home, like how her delicious spaghetti, lasagna and tiramisu filled the bellies of her guests. She blessed us with having a song or saying we never heard before, for every situation that we will remember forever. She had a special touch when it came to the holidays, making them unforgettable, always playing the role of Santa to perfection.

She was a dedicated attendee and volunteer at Corpus Christi. Her commitment to her faith and community was unwavering, and her service was a testament to her profound commitment.

Angela was revered, cherished, and deeply respected by all who had the pleasure of meeting her. Rest in peace, dear Angie. Your joy, love, and compassion will live on forever and continue to inspire us all.

    I was so sad to hear you were sick and in the hospital. I kept you in my prayers and asked our Heavenly Father to hold and comfort you. I know you loved Jesus and now you are in heaven.

    I believe I was about seven years old when I first met you when playing with my little school buddy Dave. Over all those years you were so good to me. I will always remember how sweet you were and will never forget your smiling face. Thank you for always being so kind to me.

    You did a wonderful job raising two boys that grew up to be strong, hard-working good men. I’m sure you were welcomed into heaven and told excellent job, good and faithful servant! Until we see each other again I ask our Heavenly Father to watch over your husband Don, your sons David and Danny as well as the rest of your family. 💗✝️💗

    Dearest mom, words can’t describe how much I miss you. I’m crying as I write this now. These six years having you in my life was such a blessing. Thank you for welcoming into your beautiful family. I will miss getting pedicures, eating your yummy dinners, desserts and playing cards. Thank you for raising my best friend to be an amazing man. I will do my best to take care of him and dad. Till we meet again in Heaven. I love and will miss you dearly everyday.
