Angelina ‘Angie’ Silipo, 103


Angelina “Angie” Silipo, 103, of Millsboro, Del., formerly of Trenton, N.J., passed away on Friday, March 29, 2019, at Atlantic Shores Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Millsboro. She was born Nov. 26, 1915, in Nicastro, Italy, daughter of the late Vincenco Catantaro and Concetta (Burrella) Catantaro.

Silipo worked as a seamstress for the Baxter Company in Trenton before her retirement. After moving to Millsboro in 2002, she became a member of Mary Mother of Peace Catholic Church in Millsboro and became very involved with the Indian River Senior Center. She loved to cook, play bingo, knit and crochet. She made and gave countless baby sweaters, baby caps and scarfs for those who were lucky enough to cross her path. Silipo lived on her own until she was 101 and then went into the nursing home. Her mind was still sharp, and she was crocheting and knitting until the end.

In addition to her parents, Silipo was preceded in death by her two husbands, Antonio Malerba, in 1941, and Louis Silipo, in 1988, and her three sisters and brother. She is survived by her son, Anthony R. Malerba and his wife, Louise, of Millsboro; two grandchildren, Anthony P. Malerba and his wife, Joyce, of Hulmeville, Pa., and Karen Abousselman and her husband, Joseph, of Bordentown, N.J.; two great-grandchildren, Mason Malerba and Zoey Abousselman; and several nieces and nephews.

A Mass of Christian Burial was to be held April 2, 2019, at Mary Mother of Peace Catholic Church, Millsboro, Del. Entombment was to be held at St. Mary’s Cemetery & Mausoleum in Trenton, N.J. Arrangements were by the Long Neck Chapel of Melson Funeral Services. Condolences may be sent online at www.melsonfuneralservices.com.
