Former regional councillor Anne Angelone dies at 61
Anne Angelone, a former regional councillor who made a bid to return to regional council during the recent municipal election, has died.
The Niagara Falls woman, who received 2,630 votes on Oct. 22, died Tuesday at the age of 61.
In a candidate profile which appeared in The Review in the days leading up to the election, Angelone said her top issues were employment, seniors, transportation and housing.
“A vote for Anne is a vote for real integrity, accountability, transparency and honesty,” she wrote. “I can make a difference.”
Angelone also ran for regional government in the 2014 municipal election, earning 3,270 votes.
She sat on many boards over the years and previously served as a regional councillor.
She founded the Coats for Kids program in Niagara Falls and sponsored the Schools in Bloom program. She also jumped out of a plane in support of the Niagara Falls Boys and Girls Club’s Partners in the Sky fundraiser.
She established an endowment fund with Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority and was also involved with the Business and Professional Women of Niagara Falls and was a member of the League of Women Voters.
A funeral mass will be held Nov. 13 at 10:30 a.m. at Our Lady of the Scapular Church.
