Obituary

Angela Galella Halbgewachs, (103 years old) went home to the Lord on September 30, 2020. Born June 28, 1917 in Manhattan, to Catherine and Vincent Galella. Although born in Manhattan she grew up in the Bronx in Westchester Square and later spent most of her adult life in Westchester County.

Angela married her first husband, George Justie in 1945, who predeceased her. George managed the horse stables for the NYPD. She was also predeceased by her second husband, Henry Halbgewachs who was a barber. They resided for many years in Continental Village. Later in life, she reunited with her childhood sweetheart Charles Terrico and they were married in 1995. Charles owned and operated a gas station in Long Island. Charles passed away in 2003.

Angela was one of ten children, nine of whom are deceased. She is survived by her loving sister Geraldine Silvani of Texas, sister-in-law Gloria Galella of West Islip and many nieces and nephews who adored her. Her siblings included Catherine (Paul) Rieckhoff, Vincent (Mary Jo) Galella, Phyllis (Joseph) Plevik, Joseph (Stella) Galella, Raymond (Gloria) Galella, Marie (Vincent, Arthur) Houston/Maxwell, Geraldine (Harry) Silvani, Peter and Anthony Galella.

Angela resided in Cortlandt Manor and spent many winters in Florida with her siblings and their spouses. She enjoyed playing cards with family members and traveling. She was an adventurous woman who took many trips with her family and friends, a most notable trip was to Spain. Angela enjoyed cooking and took pride in making her mother’s famous birthday cake for everyone.

Angela was an active and independent woman who worked at numerous places as a bookkeeper and office manager. She had always been tech-savvy and was active on Facebook. She was very stylish and enjoyed a good party. Her family hosted a party for her when she turned 100 years old which was well attended and most recently Angela was honored with a visit by the Continental Village and Mohegan Lake Volunteer Fire Departments to celebrate her 103rd Birthday. Angela was a true blessing in the lives of everyone who knew her. She will be truly missed.
