Mrs. Angeline Clemente Hoggins, age 98, of Gloversville, passed away on Monday, February 17, 2014, at St. Mary’s Hospital, Amsterdam.

Angie was born January 9, 1916, in Gloversville, the daughter of the late John and Marianna Copobianco Clemente. A 1935 graduate of Gloversville High School, she worked in several glove shops and was an excellent waitress in the area, notably at the formers O’Conner’s Tavern in its hey-day, and at the Eccentric Club, Union Hall Inn and the Elms Restaurant. She was the primary caregiver for her parents, and following their passing she worked for ten years as a social worker for the Fulton County Dept. of Social Services. She was a real estate associate for Mary Chmura. She was also widely recognized in the area for her house and estate sales. Any sales advertisement with “Angie” attracted interest from far and wide.

She was a member of the Church of the Holy Spirit and the Sisters of the Holy Spirit, the Foresters Lodge, Gloversville and Johnstown Senior Citizens clubs and the former Fulton County Infirmary Auxiliary.

Angie was a very caring and generous person to everyone, even those she had just met. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by three sisters, Sally Manieri and Theresa DelCostello, both of Gloversville, and Jennie Parker of Lomita, California. She also leaves behind her companion of many years, Gene Acella of Amsterdam; and many nieces and nephews.

Angie was predeceased by her husband, Albert W. Hoggins, in 1990; and by two brothers and three sisters, Michael Clemente, Carmen Clemente, Susan Wheeler, Martha Crittenden and Madeline Vietri.
