Constance Anne (Mundhenk) D’Angelo passed peacefully into eternal life on April 6, 2021, succumbing to complications of Alzheimer’s Disease three weeks shy of her 87th birthday. She lived out her final days at her home in Mahwah, where she and her husband made their home for over 50 years.
Connie, as she was known, was born to Louis Mundhenk and Jenny (Regina) Mundhenk in the Borough of Brooklyn, NY on April 27th, 1934. She attended New York public schools. After graduating from Flushing High School, she worked for the Wall Street firm of Merrill Lynch where she met the love of her life, John D’Angelo. They were married at St. Michael’s Church in Flushing, NY on May 24th, 1958. She devoted the rest of her life to caring for her husband and three children.
Connie was known for her congeniality, sense of humor, and her ever-present lovely smile. She was involved in her Indian Field Community, where she served as social chairman for 10 years. She was also an active parishioner of the Church of the Presentation in Upper Saddle River, NJ. While she participated in many community functions, she was especially fond of the church’s annual dinner celebrating the milestone wedding anniversaries of its parishioners.
Connie leaves behind her husband of 62 years, her sister Anna Watts of Cheshire, CT as well as her three children: Regina Birnbaum and her husband, Michel, of Singapore; Christopher D’Angelo and his wife, Lynn, of North Stonington, CT; Deborah Lineman and her husband, Randy, of Fredonia, NY; grandchildren E. Marshall Lauber, Tucker Lauber, Samantha Wiegel, Rebecca D’Angelo, Zachary Birnbaum, Remy Birnbaum, and Timothy Birnbaum; and great-grandchildren Vella Lauber, Nell Wiegel, and Lucia Lauber. She was predeceased by her parents, and her brother George Mundhenk.
Due to travel restrictions and other complications related to the current COVID pandemic, a memorial mass and celebration of her life will be held at a future date. The family requests donations in her memory be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, Valley Home Hospice, or a charity of choice.
