Dedicated Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Businesswoman. Angelina Falco, in her 94th year passed peacefully at home from this world into the next on the most glorious day of Spring, the 12th of April surrounded by her family in Madison, New Jersey the town she loved and lived in for 71 years.
Born in Bloomfield, New Jersey in 1925 to Caraddio and Anna Romano who raised her sisters Henrietta, Frances, Josephine and brothers Pat and Joseph. Angelina then moved to Madison in 1948 upon marrying her beloved husband Joseph Falco who preceded her passing 10 years prior, a match that was made in heaven.
Angelina (the little angel) was exactly as her name translates. She was an excellent cook and loved entertaining her family and close friends with classic family recipes. She dedicated her life to helping her family in every way. She lived a selfless life and wished the best for everyone. She was devoted to her husband with whom she worked side by side for 60 years at their esteemed business, Rose City Jewelers/Gemologists in Madison. She was very proud to work until the age of 89.
One of her favorite pastimes was reminiscing about her summers at her family's home at the shore and meeting her husband playing miniature golf on the boardwalk in Long Branch. They were married a year later in a double-wedding with her sister Frances.
Angelina is survived by her son Joseph and daughter-in-law Cynthia Vieser Falco who were her loving caregivers along with their children, Francesca and Joseph III. Also, son Philip Falco, grandchildren Gina Becker, Lisa Guidice, greatgrandchildren Gianna & Joseph Becker and beloved brother Joseph Romano of Houston, Texas.
A private celebration of her life will be held at Burroughs, Kohr & Dangler Funeral Home in Madison, New Jersey for invited family and friends.
