Edith DeAngelo, age 101, passed away peacefully at Providence Place Senior Living Community early Tuesday morning.

Born April 30, 1919 in Hazleton, she was the daughter of the late Candido and Mary (Rossini) Baronio.  She was a lifetime member of Queen of Heaven Parish at Our Lady of Grace Church, Hazleton, where she attended daily Mass while she was able.

In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband John A. DeAngelo, to whom she was married 63 years at the time of his passing in 2012.  Sisters Madeline Belletieri, Christine Lotito, Carmella Serrano, Angeline DePoalo, Lorraine Petrilla, brother Anthony Baronio, five other siblings who died as young children and her son in law Jody Houser.

Surviving are her children Nancy Houser, Cathy Gasper and her husband Joseph, Hazleton, John J. DeAngelo, Allentown and Marc and his wife Irene, Conyngham.  Her Grandchildren Krysten McGovern (Michael), Gina Johnson (Jimmy), Allentown, Jeffrey Houser (Erica), Lauren Houser, Cory Houser (Felicia), Hazleton and Matthew, Christian and Nekeya DeAngelo, Conyngham and 6 Great Grandchildren.  Her sister Vilma Scaran, sister in law Joan Baronio and several nieces and nephews also survive.

Edith was employed in the local garment industry in her younger years.  Once married she was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and proud homemaker.  Her culinary skills were legendary and were well known for her homemade ravioli and pineapple squares, a family favorite and a popular request at the parish festival bake sales.  Family Sunday dinners at her home were always the highlight of the week and included homemade pasta and cake.

Due to restrictions, private burial services will be held in Our Lady of Grace Cemetery, Hazleton.  A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at a later date. 

Joseph A. Moran Funeral Home, 229 W 12th St Hazleton, is in charge of arrangements.
