For many years, Angela was the Democratic Commissioner of the Oneida County Board of Elections. After her retirement in 2009, she continued on as a mentor. She was a member of the Women's Democratic Club and a lifelong member of the Oneida County Democrat Committee.

Angie was one of the loveliest ladies I knew, always meticulously coifed, always a lady! She and Moe were a power couple in the Democrat party. It was such a pleasure to know her!Condolences.

JoAnn and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Angela was a very determined woman, her strength and outwardness about politics always reminded me of my own mother. May God keep her close to His Heart, and may you all find strength and peace in our Blessed Mother.
