The Niagara Falls Review - - Local -

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.
