Angelina L. Kearney (Angie) died peacefully on September 19, 2019 just two weeks shy of her 89th birthday. She was a widow for one week less than a year, and is reunited in heaven with her husband of 68 years, Richard L. Kearney Sr. (Dick).
Angie was the daughter of the late Donatangelo Luongo and Innocenza Godio. She had seven older brothers, all deceased; Nicholas, Gabriel, Mario, Theodore, Alfred, William and Robert. She was the mother of Richard Jr. (Mel), Michael (Teréz) and Dennis (Floss).
Angie was known as Mom-Mom to grandsons Kevin (Stephanie), Ryan (Kelley), Timothy (Carolyn) and Dennis Jr, as well as granddaughters Cara (Ricky Haug), Krista, and Boglárka. She had eight great grandchildren.
Angie was a devoted wife and mother. She dedicated her life to raising her family and running the household, yet she found time to be a volunteer. In her younger years she was with Junior Aid, an organization providing financial assistance to charitable organizations with a focus on women, children and health related issues. She was also a Cub Scout Den Mother and was very active in the Lynnewood School PTA. Later she became a volunteer at the Liberty USO, spending one day each week at their airport facility helping US servicemen and women for over forty years. She was an auxiliary member of the Destroyer Escort Sailors Association and the Navy League. For many years, she worked at the polls on election day. For a number of years, Angie served as a companion for an elderly lady who needed help in her home.
Dick and Angie loved to dance and danced many Saturday nights at the Philadelphia Naval Base Officer’s Club. When the Naval Base closed in 1995, Angie kept the club patrons together by organizing and running dances at various venues in the Philadelphia area.
In addition to being a bridge player, Angie was in a bowling league for over fifty years. In the 1970s she won an award for making a near impossible “4,6,7,10 conversion”.
Family and stability were important to both Angie and Dick. They lived in the same Havertown house since 1954 and sat in the same pew at Sacred Heart Church for over sixty years. They loved their sons, daughters-in-law and their families and the love was returned. All three families settled within three miles.
Relatives and friends are invited to her Funeral Mass 11:00 A.M. Friday, Sept. 27th at Sacred Heart Church, Manoa & Shelbourne Rds, Havertown, PA 19083 where friends may call 9:30-10:45 A.M. at the church also. Interment Saints Peter & Paul Cemetery.
