Angie D’Amato (1926-2018)
Angelina D’Amato, 91, of Cold Spring, died March 19, 2018, surrounded by her family.
Angie was born April 11, 1926, at home in Jersey City to Philip and Maria (Reale) Percacciolo. The family moved to Cold Spring in 1937, where her father opened a cobbler and shoe repair business on Main Street. Angelina graduated from Haldane High School in 1943. One of her fondest memories was playing the clarinet with the Haldane Band at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York. After graduation, Angelina attended the Peekskill Business School.
Angie worked outside the home long before it was commonplace for women to do so. After high school, she worked at Selleck’s Law Office on Main Street in Cold Spring. During World War II, she helped with the war effort by working in a rubber factory in Beacon that manufactured life rafts, for the Selective Service at Whitehall Place, and at West Point.
On Nov. 24, 1946, she married Antonio “Tony” D’Amato at Our Lady of Loretto, where she was a parishioner and a member of the Catholic Daughters. Later, Angie was employed in the butcher department at the Grand Union in Cold Spring. In the early 1960s Angie began working as a clerk at the U.S Post Office on Main Street, a career that spanned more than 30 years and made her well known through the Philipstown area.
She is survived by her sons, Anthony D’Amato (Cynthia) of Hopewell Junction and Philip D’Amato (Patricia) of Nelsonville; her grandchildren Maria D’Amato of Beacon and Philip James D’Amato (Melissa) of Norwalk, Connecticut; and a sister, Mary Massara of Fairfax, Virginia.
