Funeral mass was celebrated Aug. 6 at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church for Angela F. Scafidi, of Secaucus and formerly of Jersey City. She passed away peacefully at home on Aug. 2. She retired from Brown Brothers Harriman, NYC, after 40 plus years and was the administrative assistant to Anthony Enders, managing partner of BBH, and was affectionately known as “The Gate Keeper” around the office. She was his “wife” at work, handling both bank and personal affairs for the managing partner. Angela coordinated many Bank Quarter Century Club formal dinners and luncheons, as well as orchestrated Bank Partner events with the private personal partner’s chief from the “Partners Only” dining room.

Angela graduated from William H. Dickinson, class of 1962 and attended the Hudson County School of Culinary Arts. A recipient of the Hudson Dispatch Annual Best Recipe Contest (1978) with her winning Mocha Mousse Dessert recipe. For three consecutive years, Angela was selected to be one of the 24 finalists in the Best Recipe Contest, but declined the invitation for two years. On the third year she ran out of excuses!

Angela was a member of the Wall Street chapter of the Lioness Club, where she knitted baby blankets for local hospitals and was always an avid reader, she always shared her latest novel with friends who also read. Her biggest passion was baking, “She could make any recipe work after three attempts”. On the average she baked 1,000 cookies for Christmas for over 40 years and shared fresh baked cookies to family and those who helped us during the year.

Over these last years, Angela received many notes and cards from her work mates who knew of her illness. She fought a brilliant battle with an un-winnable disease. Angela was predeceased by her parents, James “Big Jim” and Mary DeFlippo; she was the wife of John N. Scafidi for 42 years; sister of Annette DeNunzio and her friend James Apella, Maria Glowacki and husband Richard. She was a sister-in-law to many and special aunt to numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and friends, especially the many friends at BBH. Services arranged by the Riotto Funeral Home, Jersey City.
