Even at 103, Angie never failed turn heads. Not a day went by without someone commenting on her ageless beauty, glamour or her show-stopping silver hair. She was a true Greek Goddess. But of course her loving, witty, kind, adventurous soul will be remembered most.
The family would like to extend a special gratitude to Maria Kounalis for her friendship and support of Angie. Also, thanks to the staff at The Ridge Senior Living Foothill for providing such good service. She especially loved “happy hour” at the Ridge. Her nightly glass of red wine kept her going to 103! Everyday she completed the crossword puzzle in the newspaper.
Due to Covid-19, her service and burial will be private. Her final resting place with be Mount Olivet Cemetery. When it is safe to gather, there will be a celebration honoring the life of Angie—an extraordinary woman!
