Angeladea Marcantonio, of Moncton, passed away peacefully on September 4, 2022 at the age of 97. Born in Valle San Giovanni, Teramo, Italy, Angelina was the daughter of Egidio and Domenica Moranti.

In 1951, she married Emidio Marcantonio, the love of her life. Together, with their children Pasqualino and Evelina, they emigrated to New Brunswick with nothing but an immigrant work ethic and a dream of providing their children unlimited opportunities.

Angelina was known for her incredible cooking. She was proud of her 30 years working at Woolworth restaurant in downtown Moncton and she continued to make their memorable cheesecake after her retirement. Friends and family knew they were lucky when she gave them one of her freshly made loaves of bread or delicious pasta sauce.

To her family, she will be remembered for her unconditional love, quick wit, and larger-than-life personality. Angelina never let her lack of formal education limit her. She had a keen intelligence and her advice and counsel will be deeply missed.

Affectionately known as Nonna, she is survived by her children: Pasqualino and Evelina (John Thomas); grandchildren: Andrea Marcantonio (Clarke), Mario Marcantonio, Andrew Thomas (Melissa), and Christopher Thomas; great-grandchildren: Evan and Emily MacDonald, and Ari John Thomas; her sister, Nicolina DiDomenico; as well as many nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Emidio Marcantonio.

Her family would like to thank all the staff at Briarlea for the care, compassion and dignity that they showed her.

The family will receive condolences at Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, 88 Church Street, Moncton (858-1900) on Sunday September 11 from 2 to 4 pm only. The funeral mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Assumption Cathedral, 220 St. George Street, Moncton on Monday September 12 at 11 am. Interment will be at Our Lady of Calvary cemetery in Dieppe. In lieu of flowers, in memory of Angelina, a donation to the Alzheimer Society would be appreciated.
