Born and raised in Haskell, Angelina was the daughter of the late Samuel and Mary Destito.

Angelina loved spending time with her family and was a wonderful cook who enjoyed making homemade holiday meals. She had a wonderful memory, never forgetting a birthday or special occasion, and was loved by all who knew her.
Angelina is survived by her brother, George Destito and his wife Hilda; and many nieces and nephews.
