Angelina

September 11, 1935 ~ May 30, 2021

Born in: Los Angeles, California
Resided in: Torrance, California

There are no words right now that can express our sadness and the huge loss that our family is feeling by the recent passing of our Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, and Friend. Angie went to heaven peacefully with her family by her side at Torrance Memorial Hospital in Torrance, CA. Angie was 85 years old. She was born in Los Angeles and was one of four children to Guiseppe Badalamente and Yolanda (LaPorta). Angie grew up in the Lawndale area and attended Leuzinger High School. She made many friends in high school and kept in touch with some of them for all these years. At an early age Angie worked at Pacific Semi-Conductor Electronics where she met her soon to be husband, Don.  After PSI, Angie regularly worked with the Elks Lodge of Hawthorne and then began working as a Matron Officer for the Hawthorne Police Department. During her time with the Hawthorne PD, she honed her shooting skills and became a marksmen sharp-shooter. After many years at the Hawthorne PD, she became a security supervisor at the Garrett AiResearch facility in Torrance. She would walk the facility at night with a 38 on her side. She was always known as a tough lady with a giant heart. She would help anyone that needed help, anytime she could.

After she retired from Garrett, she and Don began to plan their retirement. She became involved in her Leuzinger high school alumni committee and re-united with more of her high school friends. She was also very active in multiple bingo groups and made many lifelong friends through these get-togethers. Angie and Don  spent many of their retirement years traveling from Torrance to Laughlin, NV and to Lake Havasu, AZ where they enjoyed boating and fishing. They shared many family vacations at Lake Havasu with kids and grandkids and taught the youngsters how to bait a hook and catch a fish.

Angie was part of a large loving Italian family that enjoyed getting together and cooking, eating, laughing and hugging. She really looked forward to all holiday get-togethers where she would see her sisters, brother and all of her family members.  She was preceded in death by her loving husband Don and older brother Ben Badalamente. She leaves behind her sisters Josephine Musso, Florence Shaw, her daughters Sheryl Martinus and husband Fred, Linda Shapleigh and husband Ted, son Bob Lumley and his wife Fawn, ten grandkids, ten great-grandkids and one great-great-granddaughter.

Services will be Saturday June 26, 2021 at 4:00 pm at Lighthouse Mortuary, 5310 Torrance Blvd, Torrance with family invited to viewing at 2:00, and friends at 3:00. There will a reception following the service.

  1. candle 6Mom, thanks for all you have done for me. I am proud to be your son. My love and our great memories together will always be in my heart.
    Until we meet again…

  2. candle 8I am so sorry for the loss of ANGIE. She and I went to school together. Although we didn’t know each other well at Leuzinger we got together when I was putting our School Reunions together and remained in touch from then on. She and I would always take a day out of the week and go to lunch and have about a 2-3 hour lunch just talking about so many different issues. SHE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED. Angie was a gentle soul and loved life and was always willing to help anyone. Sending love and condolences to the family. Thank you Bob for letting me know.

  3. Mom, you’ve been the best Mom ever to me. Always there even if I needed to just talk, you listened and usually had the answers. I love your hugs, your special kisses and you. I hold you in my heart, missing you is beyond words… I’ll see you again Mom ❤

  4. candle 5Mom my Precious Mom she was an incredible Mother, I’m so lucky to have been your daughter. I’m not here to say goodbye but to thank you for everything and for loving me and always being there for me. My heart is broken💔 Love You Forever And Always
    ❤️ I Will See You Again ❤️

  5. candle 8Angie was a friend, co-worker and part of the Bingo bunch. The bingo bunch played together monthly for years and more importantly went through many of lives ups and downs together. Friends through sickness and health, through thick and thin. We shared many laughs and many tears. Angie attended celebrations and was a part of our lives for over 30 years. In my last messages with her she was positive and upbeat even though she was going through her own health battle. She ended the message by saying she loved me and my family which I have reread several times since her passing. Angie will be so missed and always remembered as a wonderful special and loving woman ❤️

  6. candle 1Nana the kids and I miss you and will love you always. You always made me feel loved and cared for. We know you are In heaven with papa Don now so as Linda said, this isn’t goodbye because we will see you again soon Angel Nana❤️

  7. Nana, we love you and miss you so much. I cherish all of the memories I have of you and Papa Don. Too many to mention here, but you alway made sure to give us a big kiss and tell us to “mangia mangia!” I am so very proud to be your granddaughter, and I talk about you often with Isabella and Carter. I’ll be sure to give them a hug and a kiss for you.
    Love always,
    Londi (Yolanda), Brian, Isabella, and Carter

  8. candle 7Nana,
    I gave you that name…”Nana,” because I was your first granddaughter of many. I miss you so much already. You were always my “Italian Nana,” as I would tell my friends. I am so very proud to be your granddaughter . You were always there for me through everything growing up. You let me live at your house while I went to college and I learned so much from you and Papa Don. My memories are immense and too many to mention here. All I can say is you are and have always been my favorite “Nana” EVER. I will love you forever and always. 💚🤍❤️

  9. candle 5Aunt Angie,
    As hard as this is for those of us still here, I know you are in your new place, with the love of your life, Uncle Don. I’m sure you were welcomed by your Mama and Daddy and your brother, Ben, and I know my Dad has paid you and Uncle Don a visit or two.
    I miss you is an understatement, but I know you’ll be with me always. Walk beside your sisters as they are hurting with the loss of their sister. This is not a goodbye but a see you later. Love and hugs always.
    Your Niece, Debbie 💗

  10. candle 5Aunt Angie,
    As hard as this is for those of us still here, I know you are with the love of your life, Uncle Don. I’m sure you were welcomed by your Mama and Daddy and your brother, Ben, and I know my Dad has paid you and Uncle Don a visit or two.
    I miss you is an understatement, but I know you’ll be with me always. Walk beside your sisters as they are hurting with the loss of their sister. This is not a goodbye but a see you later. Love and hugs always.
    Your Niece 💗

  11. candle 3Angie: I’ve really only ever known her as “Nana”. She is the loving grandmother of my wife Trina, and great-grandmother of my children Luke and Eden. The very first time we met we went to Lomelli’s, and she watched, amazed, as a non-Italian kid mopped his plate with bread; I was instantly part of the family. I’m already missing her, and the loss is hard to bear.

  12. candle 7My spouse Shirley is Fawn’s (aka Annie) sister and Bob’s sister-in-law.
    I will always remember the sincere warmth and love that Angie always exuded when we met.
    That is not always displayed by words. It can be displayed by feelings.
    My mom and Shirley’s parents don’t speak much English. But when Angie got together with us, no words were necessary. You could see and feel the sincerity and warmth that Angie truly loved our parents…as well as us. The love is likewise. We miss you. But we know you are happy with Don at your side.

  13. candle 6Thank you for the love and kindness you always showed me. You are loved and will be missed by all who were blessed to have met you. It will be difficult not to chat with you and be able to share all our recipes and stories. Thanksgiving will not be the same and now anytime I eat meatballs they will definately have a different feeling. Lots of love

  14. Hard to believe that she is gone, Aunt Angie was a kind and loving woman. Always there with a laugh and a hug to let you know how happy she was to see you. She will be missed. The solace in her passing is in the knowledge that she will be in heaven with a lot of family that loves her as much as we will miss her. Bob. Linda, Sheryl, and all the many grandchildren please accept our prayers and love in you moments of grief.

  15. candle 2Sis you will be missed. You are forever in my heart ❤️. At this time I really don’t know what to do without you. You gave me strength when I needed it. I appreciate all of the things you did for me. I am really going to miss you.
    Your Loving Sis Flo

  16. candle 4Such a special lady who I will miss. You will be forever with us in our hearts and memories. Thank you for our many pleasant conversations and being all that you were. My love to Bob, Fawn, Sheryl, Linda and family as they find strength and courage in the days ahead. ♥️ Joanne Jackson

  17. candle 8Angie was such an incredible person. We met at Garrett years ago where she was actually my boss. We had so many fun times together. We played bingo for years with our bingo babes. Those were some of the best memories I have with her. We all laughed so much. I was very happy the last time I spoke with her I told her I loved her very much. She was a very special person and I will always have fond and loving memories of her. ❤

  18. Mom, I tried to come here but it wouldn’t let me in. So I asked Bob and he told me how. I haven’t been since my first and only time here. Today I wanted to hear your voice, I know that sounds strange, but I did. I haven’t ‘stopped’ thinking about you, you’re on my mind day and night, and in my heart. I try to keep a strong upper lip, so to speak, but missing you is so, so deeply an ache that I can’t explain it. I miss Dad sooo much too, but
    you Mom… I’ve never felt this heavy
    hearted in my life. I love you❤
    I miss you❤ Love Forever and Always
    Sheryl

  19. To Angie’s family, The last time I saw Angie and Don was in 2004, when we celebrated my 80th birthday in Florida. Angie loved the festivities, enjoyed meeting all my friends, and added to the fun for everyone. In just those few days Angie became good friends with Cindy, my son’s wife, and they continued their friendship. Such priceless memories that I love remembering.
