Angeline Grace (Manduke) Spena, 108, died on Saturday morning, Feb. 6, 2021, in the comfort of her own home in Palatka, FL. She was the mother of the late Catherine Marie Tamburro, and the Grandmother of Nancy Witz, Angela Lomaglio, Cathy Munley, Frank and Patrick Tamburro. She was the Great Grandmother of eight grandchildren. She was recently predeceased by her son, Frank Spena who died in October. Born in Shenandoah, PA, she moved to CT and met her husband, Pasquale Spena. With her son, the family moved to FL where she resided until her death. Angie always worked, meeting many people, and making many friends. While in CT she worked at Landers. In FL, she and her husband owned a restaurant/lounge which she was a hostess. She was a volunteer for many years at her local hospital receiving recognition for her hours of service. She was an active parishioner of St. Monica Church in Palatka, where she was a lector and referred to the parishioners, as her “church family.” These wonderful people were very instrumental to Angie in the last few months of her life. Angie will be remembered as a fashion icon, and for her youthful spirit. A lover of God, life, fun, and people, she leaves many friends to mourn and remember her.
