Date of Death: September 10, 2019
Angelina Doyno was born on May 17, 1922 in New York City. As a girl, she moved with her family out to Elmont on Long Island, NY. Angie was the eldest of four. She had twin brothers (August and Carlo) and a baby sister Antonette. Angie graduated from Sewanaka High School in 1939 and got a job as a secretary at the Franklin National Bank in Franklin Square, NY. On December 7, 1947, Angie married Rocco Bozzi, and they raised a family of four in Elmont and then Huntington Station NY – also on Long Island. Angie’s children were Patricia, Carol, Janet and John. Once the children were grown, Angie returned to work first as a secretary and then as a teacher’s aide for a BOCES (Board of Cooperative Education) school for children with special needs. After retiring in 1986, Angie and Rocco moved to an apartment in Moriches NY. There they enjoyed having family gatherings and entertaining their eight grandchildren – Kristen and Brian (Patricia & Leif Birkeland), Kim and Bobby (Carol Bozzi & Jon Heytota), Matthew and Victoria (Janet & Ken Anderson), Dominick and Rhianna (John & Nancy Bozzi). As the grandchildren got older, the family expanded with the addition of two great-grandchildren, Abby and Lucas (Kim & Mike Kelly). Rocco passed away in 2000, and Angie remained in the apartment in Moriches until 2015 when she moved to the Bristol Assisted Living in Sayville NY. She moved out to Anthem AZ in November of 2016. She lived with her daughter and son-in-law, Janet and Ken Anderson, for six months. She was one of the first residents to move into the brand new Merrill Gardens Assisted Living at Anthem in May 2017, where she made many friends and enjoyed living independently up until her recent illness. Angie was a generous soul. She gave freely of herself to those in need – donating to many charities, supporting the Catholic Church, offering rides and assistance to friends who needed help. She was a role model of Christian charity. Angie’s table was always filled with delicious Italian dishes, and the extended family gathered often around it in Huntington and Moriches to laugh and play poker. Angie was an attractive woman and always dressed meticulously – her beauty shining through. Even as she reached her old age, she always coordinated her outfits with a scarf, necklace and earrings. She was never without a fresh tube of lipstick in her favorite color. Angie was a hearty soul. She loved to do yardwork more so than housework. She took up golf at age 72 and played it until she was 90. She powered through two hip fractures in her mid-90’s to get back up and walking. She moved out to Arizona after 94 years of living on Long Island and adjusted to Arizona with great gusto. She loved the mountains and the wide scenic vistas. Angie loved her grandchildren – she found great joy in their antics and accomplishments. Angie will be remembered for her smile, her beautiful eyes, her generous soul, and her concern for others above herself.
