Memorial service and funeral arrangements for Mob Wives star Angela “Big Ang” Raiola have been set for this weekend. The Scarpaci Funeral Home in Brooklyn is hosting several visitations for the VH1 reality star, whose larger-than-life personality touched so many, on Saturday and Sunday before a formal memorial service at Basilica of Regina Pacis, also in Brooklyn, on Monday morning. Big Ang will be laid to rest at Resurrection Cemetery in her native Staten Island.
Ang’s sister, Janine Detore, told Us Weekly after Ang’s passing that “She was so at peace with death. She was OK with it. She said she didn’t want to live being on the medicine, doing all that. She didn’t want to do that. And she said, ’If it’s my time, it’s my time. Just tell me. I want to spend my time with the grandchildren and with my family.’ She wanted to be home and all that.”
