Edna (Adenah) M. (Capone) DeAngelis-Leventhal of Stoneham passed away on Tuesday, May 4, 2021 at the Blaire House in Tewksbury. She was 86 of age.
Edna, the loving daughter of the late Edward and Marie Capone, is the beloved wife of the late Jerry Leventhal and former spouse of the late Bill DeAngelis. She is the loving mother of Bill DeAngelis and his wife Karen and Lisa DeAngelis. The cherished grandmother of Cassy DeAngelis and Alicia Silvestri, Edna is also the caring stepmother of Michael Leventhal and his wife Lily, their two sons Aaron and Jonathan, and Randy Leventhal. She is the dear sister of Edward Capone and his wife Janet and Joseph Capone. Edna is predeceased by her sisters Marie (Mimi) and Irene. She is also lovingly survived by many nieces, nephews and friends.
Edna spent her younger years in Somerville. She attended Somerville High School, where she was always on the honor roll and enjoyed learning. Edna made a lot of close friends, some of which she stayed in contact with all her life.
Edna started work at Lincoln Labs after high school then later worked at IBM as an executive secretary for over 40 years. She formed many close friendships. She also became very proficient in shorthand. Edna worked in an office of IBM responsible for developing future technologies in computer software and hardware. Because of this she got to see many of the new inventions and was one of the first to use text messaging, word processing, and emails. Edna enjoyed learning new things and was proud of the people she met and the technology she was privileged to see.
Edna enjoyed traveling with Jerry and got to see many places around the world. She also enjoyed animals and staying at home with her beloved black Labrador Pepper. After Pepper passed, she became very close to her cat Leo (which she often called Bozo).
One of the places she enjoyed the most was the Berkshires in western Massachusetts. She and Jerry had a time share unit in Lee, Massachusetts that they visited frequently with Pepper. Edna enjoyed visiting the local museums, small shops, country stores and eateries. What she loved the most was the mountains and the fall foliage. Edna also enjoyed frequenting the Norman Rockwell Museum and spending time in Tanglewood.
Edna was also very good at sketching and working with modeling clay. When she was younger one of her drawings of Pinocchio was published in the local paper. She also enjoyed reading and writing poetry.
