Beloved nurse, daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother Anne Dolores Salvatore DeAngelo
passed away on June 8, 2021 at the age of 89 in Greenwich Hospital with family by her side.
Her family celebrates her vibrancy and the joy she brought to everyone she encountered.
Born in Greenwich on August 12, 1931 to Mary (Piccirillo) and Bert Ernest Salvatore, Anne
loved her older brother, Bert Jr., and her extended family. At Greenwich High School, she was
captain of the girls’ basketball team and an avid field hockey player, graduating in 1949. She
attended St. Francis Hospital School of Nursing in Hartford, Conn., and graduated as Class
President in 1952. She and her four suitemates remained devoted friends, getting together well
into their 80s.
Anne met her husband, Salvatore DeAngelo, at Bruce Park after a baseball game. They married
at St. Mary’s Church in Greenwich in 1956 and raised their three children. She was
predeceased by her parents and brother. She is survived by her husband of 64 years, her
children: Bob (Jan), Don (Carolyn), and Dina, and five grandchildren: Annie, Julia and Scott
DeAngelo; Béla and Inés Jankovich-Besan, all of whom she truly adored. Photos of her children
and grandchildren covered her walls and tabletops.
She held a deep and sincere devotion to her Catholic faith. She and Sal were charter members
of St. Agnes Church. Not a day went by without Anne asking the Blessed Virgin Mary, guardian
angels, and Saint Jude to watch over her family.
From the early days of bandaging her pet dog and teddy bear, nursing was Anne’s greatest
passion and life calling. Her 53 years as an RN included serving as the Head Nurse of the
5East-Medical-Surgical Unit of Greenwich Hospital and then at Greenwich Gynecology. She
helped countless couples, from conception to birth. Almost anywhere Anne went, women would
express gratitude for how much she had helped them during their pregnancies. ‘Til her last
breath, Anne loved the nursing profession and taking care of others.
Anne was active in the community and loved volunteering in the greenhouse of the Greenwich
Botanical Center from her retirement until less than two weeks before her death. She was a
long-time volunteer in the Bruce Museum store. She was also a member of the Greenwich
Women's Club, Friends of Greenwich Point, YWCA, Greenwich Audubon Center, Greenwich
Historical Society and the Bruce Women’s 18-holer golf club. She assisted with her children’s
cub and girl scout troops. Anne loved the outdoors, especially the Town beaches -- from riding
the Island Beach boat to swim as a young girl to later cherishing daily drives and walks at Tod’s
She loved welcoming people of all ages to her home, whether for planned parties or
spontaneous visits. The music of Andrea Bocelli, ABBA, and the Titanic soundtrack were
favorites to be played while cooking or dancing with her grandchildren. A devoted gardener, her
family and friends will lovingly think of her whenever they smell lily of the valley or eat string
beans and cucumbers from the garden. A firm believer that “you’re not old until you’re 90,”
Anne’s age matched her youthful spirit throughout her life.
We love you more!
In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make a contribution to the Greenwich Botanical Center,
P.O. Box 1600, Cos Cob, CT 06807. Private funeral arrangements are being handled by
Castiglione Funeral Home, Inc. in Greenwich. A celebration of Anne’s life will be planned later in
the summer.
