“Loving Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother (Gigi), Great-Great-Grandmother, Aunt, Sister, Friend and Child of God”
Angeline (nee Bolea) Ryan Antin went home to be with the Lord at the age of 89, on November 26, 2021. She was born on December 8, 1931, to Italian Immigrants from Prezza, Italy, the late Angelo and Francesca (Spadorcia) Bolea, in Niagara Falls, NY. Angie was the youngest of nine, having had three older brothers, Samuel, David, and Noah (all predeceased) and five older sisters, Rebecca, Rachel, Mary, Anna, Virginia (all predeceased). Angeline worked in her teenage years to help support her family during hard times. At a very young age, Angie discovered that she had a God-given talent for the piano. She never had lessons.
On October 4, 1951, Angeline married John M. Ryan (predeceased) of Niagara Falls, NY. They had three children, John Kenneth, Patricia Ann, and Faith Annie. Faced with the challenge of being a single parent, Angeline continued to put her full faith and trust in God that He would never leave her nor forsake her as she worked multiple jobs to provide for her family. Her favorite bible verse was Psalms 27:14 (KJV), which she relied on, “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.” Her favorite sacred hymn was, “Great is Thy Faithfulness.”
Through the years, Angeline served in ministry at Niagara Falls First Assembly of God (Currently The Bridge). In addition to being the church pianist, she also served as President for the Women’s Ministries, lead the Women's Ministries Young Prayer Partners, and taught classes for new believers. Angie served in the Church Nursery in her younger years, and cooked many meals for church functions and events. For years, Angeline played the piano for Women’s Aglow Fellowship of Niagara Falls.
Angeline remarried on November 19, 1977 to Rev. Edwin Antin (predeceased). She moved to Enola, Pennsylvania to begin her new role as an Assembly of God Pastor’s wife at West Shore First Assembly of God. While in Enola, Angie supported her husband in ministry. When Edwin retired from full time ministry in 1983, Angeline moved back to Niagara Falls, NY with her husband. Angeline continued to support her husband in ministry when he served as Interim Pastor at Niagara Falls First Assembly of God, Lewiston Assembly of God, and Walnut Avenue Christian Church, Niagara Falls. Rev. Antin and Angeline were married for 36 years when he went home to be with the Lord on May 17, 2014. Together, Angie and Edwin read the Bible cover to cover every year of their marriage, 36 times.She enjoyed reading God’s Word, playing the piano, shopping, crocheting, cooking, baking, word searches, socializing with friends on Facebook, and spending time with her family.
Angeline is survived by her son, John Kenneth (Sharon) Ryan and two daughters, Patricia (Brian) Franke and Faith (Randy) Ezzo. Also surviving are 8 grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandsons. Angie is also survived by two step-sons, Ernest (Norene) Antin and Rev. Steven (Patti) Antin and two step daughters, Carolyn (Rev. Ted) Heaston and Joyce (Rev. Thomas) Rutherford. Those who had the privilege of knowing Angie will remember her spunky personality, infectious laugh, piano playing, and most importantly, her love and devotion for her Lord and Savior.
