Read more about the life story of Margaret “Margie” and share your memory.
Margaret A. “Margie” (nee Salamone) Santangelo-Lombardi 93, died peacefully on August 15, 2023
at her residence in Spring House. She was born on December 29. 1929 in Norristown and is the daughter of the late Clarance (aka Nicolas) and Grace (Pitts) Salamone. She was preceded in death
by her late husband, James (Jazz) D. Santangelo in 1981, her brothers: John, Anthony,
Alfred and Joseph, her sister Phyllis (Heffron) and her second husband Frank Lombardi.
Margaret is survived by her daughter Barbara currently of Lansdale, her son James (Jamey) and his wife Jenny of East Norriton, her grandchildren: Barry Raeburn (Sheri) of Phoenixville, Alyssa Johnson (MJ) Pottstown, Gabrielle Santangelo- Catanzaro (Michael) of Rochester, NY and James of East Norriton.
She was the great grandmother of Michael, Madison, Margo, Julianna Merric, Jason, Carter, the
soon-to- arrive Addison. Aunt Margie was a favorite aunt to many of her nieces and nephews.
Margaret loved to dance and listen to music. On any given day you could hear her singing a tune from the wide repertoire of songs from the big band era to present-day pop, or humming along
while her grandson James played the piano for her. Of late, her favorite tunes were “I Just Called to Say I Love you” (Stevie Wonder), “Please Release Me” (Engelbert Humperdinck) and “Hey Jude” (The Beatles). She undoubtedly was a ‘chocaholic’. Anything chocolate was always a welcomed snack, treat or dessert. She has a particular panache for Hershey’s kisses and chocolate ice cream.
She was ahead of the times as a “fashionista” for her era and was a regular patron of the Valley Forge Shoppe in Norristown. Her nieces always admired her flair for fashion, especially her high-heeled shoes and hats.
She loved spending time with her three sisters (Anna Mallozzi, Phyllis Heffron and Lucia Salvo) and enjoyed time road trips ‘down the road’ with them to the shore and the casinos.
Margaret - Granny to her grands and great-grands - would always have time to play or participate in
fun activities whether playing ball, roller skating at a birthday party or driving matchbox cars on the floor with her boys and spending time cheering for them from the sidelines
Margie left an indelible mark on the people she loved.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend a memorial service to celebrate her life on Monday August 21, 2023 at Volpe Funeral Home, 707 West Germantown Pike, East Norriton, PA. Visitation will begin at
6:00 pm with a service scheduled to start at 7pm.
