July 30, 1926 ~ April 27, 2018
Angelina “Angie” Ferrandino, 91, wife of Luca Ferrandino, formerly of Norwalk, passed away peacefully in her sleep on April 27th in Naples, Florida.
Born July 30, 1926, in Norwalk, she was the daughter of the late Pasquale and Maria Buono Baldino.
Angie was the former Administrative Assistant to the Academic Dean at Norwalk Community College where she also spearheaded fundraising efforts for the Friends of NCC. She was a member of the Sons of Italy, the Ladies Auxiliary at St. Ann’s Club, the Columbiettes, and served as a volunteer at St. Joseph Church and St. Thomas Church. Angie, along with her beloved husband, Luca, made the most of her retirement, traveling the world to such places as Italy (especially to the island of Ischia), Argentina (her Mother’s birthplace), Kenya, India, the Panama Canal, Mexico, the Caribbean, Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada and to many parts of the U.S.A., including Hawaii, Alaska, California and Florida, where she enjoyed her winters in Naples. But most of all, Angie enjoyed the company of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and they certainly enjoyed and loved her.
