Angie was born and raised in Yonkers working as a seamstress at local garment factories during war time. She met and married the love of her life Mario J Vittoria in 1955 and had her children Joseph and Patricia. She was a homemaker who loved to cook for family and friends. She later went to work for her brother Jack and sister-in-law Alice at their luncheonette "Jackie's Hot Dogs" on Mt Carmel Place. She held strong family values and loved nothing more than to be surrounded by her very large and extended family. She adored her three grandsons and they adored her.
