Angela R. Monteleone (nee Ricciardi) 83, of Wood-Ridge, formerly of Jersey City, passed away peacefully on Thursday September 26th 2019. She was co-owner and operator of Monteleone’s Bakery where she worked side-by-side with her husband Carmine for 42 years. Retiring in 2003, she continued to be a presence in the bakery, warmly greeting and speaking to customers daily until her passing.

She was dedicated to the wonderful works of Hudson Hospice. Angela loved going to shows at the Arts Center with her husband, and trips to Cape May, NJ and Lancaster, PA with her family. She enjoyed NJ lottery scratch–off tickets, TV ‘Lawyer’ shows and the NY Yankees.
