Angela "Nan" Albano age 93 of Stow, formerly of Brooklyn, NY passed away on Wednesday, December 28, 2015 at Concord Health Care Center.
Born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on June 20, 1922 she was the daughter of the late Matthew and Marina Petruska. Nan married and soon moved to Brooklyn.
Nan was first and foremost a mother and homemaker. Family and friends recall her delicious home-cooked meals and festive atmosphere during the holidays. She supported her husband's clothing manufacturing business and volunteered at the local elementary school, where she helped children improve their reading skills.
Nan was an avid gardener, an accomplished seamstress, and a voracious reader. She enjoyed spending time with family, neighbors and friends of all ages. Later in life, she managed a delicatessen and catering business.
In 2010 she moved to Stow to be closer to her daughter. Her warmth, energy and outgoing character made friends out of strangers wherever she went. When she moved to assisted living, management praised her for her ability to draw quieter residents out of their shells by engaging them in poker games, conversation, and walks.
Nan is survived by her children Demi Albano of Brooklyn, Sondra Albano of Stow and David Albano of Scotts Valley, CA. She is also survived by five grandchildren (Gina, Daniella, Angelica, Joshua and Kaitlyn) and three great-grandchildren.
Family and friends gathered to honor and remember Nan on Wed. Dec. 30 from 5:30-7:00 pm in the Concord Funeral Home 74 Belknap St., Concord. Her funeral service followed at 7:00 pm. Interment will be private.
