Angie loved her house on Avenue A and enjoyed gardening around her home, cooking her secret sauce and meatball recipe, walking around Watervliet and watching her children and grandchildren’s sporting and school events. She enjoyed the simple things like sitting at her dining room table drinking coffee and talking for hours with her friends and relatives. She also loved music and dancing. She was always dancing with her grandchildren and singing to them and never missed a chance to “jitterbug” at any event she went to.
