Angela worked at Milton Town Hall for more than 30 years. She will be sadly missed.

Angela moved to Dorchester from Greece when she was a young girl. She brought with her a great pride in her heritage and enjoyed preparing Greek food, listening to Greek music, and celebrating traditions with her family.

Her appreciation of fashion along with her fondness for hats and dangling earrings had her looking perfectly put together for any occasion.

She loved a good restaurant, an extra dry gin martini, and could track down the best fried clams in New England.

The love she had for her daughters, Nikki and Tina, knew no bounds. That unconditional love carried over to her grandsons. She embraced her role as YiaYia, spending her time playing cards, board games, and ball with Leo and Damon. When at their house, she shared a special bond with Jackson, the family dog, who followed her around everywhere and would lay at her feet whenever she sat

Angela loved to dance and enjoyed a good party. Her only ask for her services was that they be upbeat and light – a celebration of the life she lived!

He lived life to the fullest where every day was a new day, keeping a positive attitude right up until the end. He was a fighter, a warrior, a bright light, and a believer that dreams really do come true. Most of all, Ron was devoted to his family, actively supporting their many activities and accomplishments.
