Loving mother, grandmother, aunt and friend
Marilyn (Michael) Angelo, a longtime resident of Claremont, died on February 5, 2015. She was 86.
She was born on June 12, 1928 at Pomona Valley Hospital to Wilford and Edith Michael. She graduated valedictorian of her 1946 class at Bonita High School. She went on to graduate from Mt. SAC and Pomona College.
After working for Farmer’s Insurance and Coca-Cola, she took over her father-in-law’s printing business in the 1970s, Angelo Printing, which she ran until last year. Her office was in San Dimas, where she volunteered on many boards and made many friends. She was an active member of Pilgrim Congregational Church in Pomona.
Marilyn was an avid reader and loved to travel, but her favorite thing to do was spend time with family and friends. “She was a caring mother, grandma, aunt and lifelong friend,” family shared. “She loved God and country, and was part of The Greatest Generation.”
She was preceded in death by her husband Paul “Bill” Angelo, her sister Edith Allene and her brother Stanford. She is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Wilford Jr. and Jean; her sister-in-law Helen; and her daughters and sons-in-law, Michele and Bruce Drew and Marisa and Tom Wied. She also leaves her grandchildren Mallory and Tyler Roth, Hailey and Chad Scott and Connor and Alex Wied as well as many nieces and nephews.
Services for Mrs. Angelo will be held on Saturday, February 21 at 12:30 p.m. at Pilgrim Congregational Church, located at 600 N. Garey Ave. in Pomona. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The David and Margaret Home, veteran organizations or the “Stop Human Trafficking Program” of Soroptomist International San Dimas/La Verne.
