Cangimila, Angelina “Lena”
(Donner, D’Ambra)
Gates: July 6, 2020, at age 97. Peacefully entered into rest at her daughter’s home. Lena was born on December 22, 1922, in Taranto, Italy to John and Emma (Narducci) Boffola. In addition to her parents, Lena was predeceased by her beloved husband of 56 years, Ralph A. Cangimila; her brother, Frank P. Boffola; stepbrother, Charles Iacuzzo.
Lena was the matriarch of 5 generations; survived by her devoted daughters, Cathie (Wayne) Donner, Carol (David) Childress; her adored grandchildren, Frank (Ann) D’Ambra, Steven D’Ambra, Jessica (Maya Thompson) Childress, Eric Childress, Christopher (Mitsuyo) Donner, Jonathan (Melissa) Donner, Amy (Tony) Moosey; precious great grandchildren, Amanda (Kevin) Beehler, Samantha D’Ambra (fiancé, Jacob Simmons), Frankie R. D’Ambra, Stevie, Caitlin, Gavin and Gianna D’Ambra, Lindzy and Kaydence Childress Thompson, Noah and Lindsay Donner, Toya, Shion and Aira Donner; beloved great-great grandchildren, Joseph, Logan and McKenzie Beehler, and Isabella D’Ambra; sister-in-law, Jean McDonald; many nieces and nephews. She also leaves her little “poochies” Max, Riley and Bailey.
Lena emigrated to the United States at the age of 8 years old, along with her brother to be with her father, as their mother had died years earlier. Lena graduated from Jefferson High School in 1942. She was on optical lens inspector at Bausch and Lomb retiring after 36 years.
Lena had a kind and gentle spirit, who gave unconditional love to her family throughout her whole life. She will be missed and loved always… no one could make sauce like gramma even though we all had her recipe!!!
Special thank you to her grandson Steve who lovingly and willingly provided her care for the last three years, allowing her to live in her own home until the last 4 months of her life; and thank you to great granddaughter Amanda, Heidi Habgood for their special care; and blessings to her son-in-law, Wayne, who along with Cathie, gently provided her hospice care,
Friends may call THURSDAY from 7-9PM at the DiPonzio Funeral Home, Inc., 219 Spencerport Rd., Gates. On Friday, July 10, all are invited to attend her Funeral Mass at 10:00AM at St. Theodore’s Church. Interment, Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.
