Raised in Newton, Angela devoted her life to caring for and advocating for children. A mother of 5, she and her husband Chris were foster parents for 13 years, and very proud adoptive parents. In addition, she worked in a variety of child-care settings, and for 10 years ran a family daycare from her home in Newton. She succeeded in her life's mission of making every child she cared for feel like a part of her family. She was, simply, a mom at heart.
A funeral service was held at the Congregational Church of Needham, 1154 Great Plain Ave Needham, on Saturday, July 21 at 11:30 a.m., followed by a burial service at the New Westwood Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Heifer International, one of Angela's favorite charities.
