Mary D’Angelo Reaches 100!
On May 10, Mary D’Angelo, a resident at Coachman Square at Woodbridge, turned 100 years young! A lifelong New Haven area resident, Mary has two sons, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She was married for 62 years to Bob D’Angelo until his death in 2014. He served on the board of finance for the city of New Haven and retired as vice president for Bank of America. They met on a blind date setup by her best friend and were married at St. Joseph’s Church in New Haven across the street from her house. After high school, Mary worked at Yale, Bullard’s Furniture Store and later, Connecticut Savings Bank. She was born in the Fair Haven section of New Haven to parents who immigrated from the Counties of Leitrim and Roscommon in Ireland. In fact, before she married, Mary’s mother worked as a domestic and cook for a number of prominent New Haven families. At one time, she even cooked for President Taft who praised her roast goose!
