Patricia "Pat" Lee Angelo Obituary

Gastonia, NC


Patricia Lee Angelo, 85 of Gastonia died May 15, 2024, at her home surrounded by her loved ones. She was born on May 28, 1938, in Geneva, NY, and was the daughter of the late William Lee and Laura Bailey Flaherty.


After a brief time at welding school, Pat began her career at Marine Midland Bank in Watkins Glen, NY. It was there in that small beautiful village at the end of Seneca Lake that she met, fell in love with, and married James J. Angelo. His career took them to Lancaster, Ohio in 1964 and this is when Pat began her second career as a stay-at-home Mom, raising four daughters known as the “4-K’s. Another career move and Jim’s desire to play golf 365 days of the year brought them to Gastonia, NC in 1980. She returned to the banking industry that she loved and retired from Wachovia in 2003. The Club Drive house became the epicenter for friends, family, and the occasional stranger. Mama Pat was the consummate hostess and although she was a very proud Irish woman, she was taught the fine art of Italian cooking and became known for her pasta dinners. It has been rumored that the house was also host to an occasional high school

party or two. We can neither confirm nor deny, but our sources are kids who attended Ashbrook High School between 1983-1994. Pat will be remembered most for her love of family and friends, her front door always being open to all, her generous spirit, her sassy sense of humor, and in the later years, her missing filter.


Pat is survived by four daughters, Kris McFadden and husband, Owen of Gastonia, NC, Kim Watson and husband, David of Belmont, NC, Karin Norman and husband, Jamie of Gastonia, NC, and Kathi Hamilton and husband, Todd of Gastonia, NC; seven grandchildren, Emma McFadden, Maeve McFadden, Jack McFadden, Nick Norman, Josephine Watson, Kennedi Hamilton, Spencer Hamilton; sister, Shirley Ormsbee of Waterloo, NY; sisters-in-law, Joanne McLaine and Laura Lee; numerous nieces and nephews and all those that considered Momma Pat a second Mom.


In addition to her parents, Pat is preceded in death by her husband, Jim Angelo; in-laws, James Angelo, Sr and wife, Jo Angelo; sister, Virginia Rondinaro and husband, Louis Rondinaro; brother, Dick Lee and wife, Ann Lee; sister, Barb Specchio and husband, Ted Specchio; brother, Bob Lee and brothers-in-law, Bill Ormsbee and Dick McLaine.


The family would like to express their gratitude to friends and family members for their unwavering support. A special thanks to Centerwell Home Health of Gastonia, Dr. Tambarella and Dr. Jarrett and all the nurses, CNA’s and techs who work on the 5 th floor of Caromont Regional Medical Center. You are all exceptional and truly amazing at what you do.


A memorial service will be on Saturday, May 18, 2024 at Founders Chapel of McLean Funeral Directors of Gastonia at 1:00 PM, with Pastor Joey Denton officiating. Immediately following the service, there will be a visitation at McLean Funeral Directors of Gastonia. Also, there will be a private interment for the family.
