Angelina “Angie” Eramo, 94, of Bristol, passed away peacefully at her home on Friday morning, June 9, 2017, surrounded by her family. She was the loving widow of Vito D. Eramo, to whom she was married for 64 years.
Angie was born on Feb. 17, 1923, in Holden, W.Va., daughter of the late Frank and Maria Venturo. She was an active, longtime member of St. Anthony Church, a member of their Rosary Society, a volunteer at St. Anthony’s Italian Festival for many years and up until very recently, a volunteer at St. Anthony’s Tuesday morning Bingo for over 40 years. Her greatest joys were her great-grandchildren and spending time with her family. Angie was an avid baker and an amazing cook and made the best pies you’ve ever eaten.
She leaves her only child, daughter, Mary O’Donnell and her husband, Tim, of Bristol; grandchildren, Christy Mitchell and her husband, Rob, of Bristol, Shelley Mendoza and her husband, Greg, of West Hartford; great-grandchildren, Emily and Lauren Mitchell and Matthew and Ryan Mendoza; sisters, Esther St. Amand of Bristol, Mary Lou Gualtieri of Boca Raton, Fla. and Rena Failla of Berlin; brothers, Steve Venturo and his wife, Joan; and Anthony Venturo, all of Bristol, along with several cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends. Angie’s kind heart touched all who knew her, and she will be greatly missed.
Calling hours will be held on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, beginning at 9 a.m. at O’Brien Funeral Home, 24 Lincoln Ave., Forestville until 11:30 a.m. when the procession will proceed to St. Anthony Church, 111 School St. for a Mass of Christian Burial at noon.
