Portrait of kensington park senior living resident angie e.Angie E. was born in Washington D.C. raised by one Italian parent and one German parent, taking characteristics from both. Some of her Italian roots shine through her good cooking while she credits her German roots for being meticulous and neat.

Angie was married for 61 years to Frank E. (‘Big Frank”). She is the mother of five, grandmother of 18 and great grandmother of 11 so her family definitely keeps her busy. She worked in her father’s dry cleaning business growing up and then became a homemaker and raised her family. Angie then managed the books for her husband’s cleaning supply company.

Growing up around dry cleaning business she came to love folding, cleaning, organizing, etc. She is always serving others and always willing to go the extra mile for others. Family has always been her number one priority and makes sure her family knows it. Angie is known for her ‘famous’ cooking especially her lasagna, pizzelle’s (Italian waffle cookies), and olio sauce. When Frank would say “Ange is putting on the sauce” everyone would come over to eat and stay late into the night. Frank would also invite all of his friends over to enjoy Angie’s Banana Splits. She loves to drive and would gladly drive everyone around.

She was frugal and resourceful, a bit of a MacGyver! She had her own tool box and would be a plumber, electrician, and handy woman when needed. When a problem was beyond her abilities she would give in and say “Ok, call the man,” regardless of what professional was needed.

Angie is a delight to have here at KP and we are so happy that she has shared so much of her life with us.
