Obituary

Angela Mascia left this Earth and was reunited in heaven with her loving husband Luigi on April 9th, 2020. She was born on June 22nd, 1934, in the town of Colle Sannita, a provincia di Benevento in Italy. Angela grew up in this beautiful town with her parents and 3 sisters, Libera, Erminia, and Luigina. In 1960 at the age of 26, Angela married her beloved Luigi and joined him in America. They settled in The Bronx, New York, and had two sons, Joseph (1961) and Angelo (1962).

Angela’s new home in the Bronx was a vivacious and happy one. It became even more so when her sister, Luigina, married Luigi’s brother, Angelo, in 1965 and moved into the same house. For several years there were 3 generations of Mascia’s living under one roof, spread out over three different floors. A home truly filled with love, joy, and laughter. In 1973, a third sister, Erminia, joined the family making the trip across the ocean from Colle.

Angela was a seamstress by trade. An active member of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union, she worked at various dress factories and alteration departments in The Bronx and Manhattan until eventually retiring in the mid 1990’s.

Angela, Luigi, and family moved to Westchester County in 1984, where they bought a home less than a mile from Luigina and Angelo. Countless bbq’s, parties, holidays, and Sunday dinners occurred in this home. Angela loved to host and have people over. She loved to cook (and was very good at it). She loved that her family lived so close to one another. She would not have had it any other way.

Not only was family life extremely important to Angela, but she was a friend to so many in the Colle-Decorata Society. There were countless picnics, events, and Christmas dinner dances where Angela loved to get on the dance floor with Luigi. Almost every year, Angela and Luigi would travel back to Colle Sannita and spend a month in their beloved hometown. Often this was coupled with trips to other countries in Europe, even once a trans-Atlantic cruise.
Life was wonderful for Angela, and then she became “Nonna.”

Her first grandchild came in 1990 and 3 more followed in 1993, 1996, and 2000. Her grandchildren became her life after she retired. Two of them lived around the block from her, and the other two came every, single weekend from Staten Island to have some of her Sunday cooking. Countless memories were made when her grandchildren visited, and many life lessons were learned.

In 2010, Luigi passed away leaving a hole in Angela’s life that was never truly filled. Until her death, she spoke about the day when she would see him again. As a family we can take solace in the fact that the two of them are finally together again. As one of her nephew’s put it, “I don’t know who is happier, your grandmother or your grandfather.” As much as it pains us here to see her go, we will always remember her fondly, deeply, and forever. Knowing they are reunited and dancing away puts a smile on our faces as we say goodbye.

Wife, mother, sister, aunt, friend. The chief.

Angela is survived by her son Joseph and wife Luisa, her son Angelo and wife Beatrice, grandchildren Luigi, wife Jillian, Nicholas, wife Cristiana, Sara, and Matthew; Sisters - Libera, Erminia, and Luigina and countless extended family too many to list – just as she always preferred it.

On Holy Thursday April 9th the world lost a great person in my mother in law Lina Mascia. Words cannot express the pain and grief I feel. There is a huge hole in my heart which will never be repaired. I look to fond memories and prayers to held me cope with the emptiness and loneliness. What comes to mind when I think of my mother-in-law? Goodness, honesty, selflessness, generosity and kindness and so much more. She was truly one of God's angels and we were blessed to have her in our lives. She always placed others first before herself and she had a great love for life. Her memory will live on forever. Two quotes I find to be true: "unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality" and "there are no goodbyes for us Mom, wherever you are, you will always be in my heart forever". I love you always and forever and ever.
