Angela Lucia (nÈe Ciotti, Grove) Greear, 67, of Bowling Green, Missouri, formerly of Kincaid, Illinois, passed away on March 25, 2023, at Parkside Manor in Bowling Green, Missouri.
Angela was born on August 19, 1955, in Pekin, Ill., daughter of Tullio and Mary Dorothy (Bateson) Ciotti of Kincaid. She married in 1979 and later divorced. She married Stanley Greear in 2005, who preceded her in death in 2008.
She graduated Kincaid High School in 1973, graduated as an LPN from St. John’s School of Nursing in 1975, and earned her Associate’s Degree in Health Care Administration from Lincoln Land Community College in 2000. It was her calling in life to care for others any way she could, whether as a nurse at Taylorville Care Center until she retired in 2004, or through crafts. She loved sewing, knitting and crocheting blankets, clothes, hats, scarves, and gloves for family, friends, and anyone who needed them. She was a member of St. Rita’s Catholic Church in Kincaid and a member of the St. Rita’s Altar and Rosary Sodality until she entered assisted living in 2008. During her daughter’s youth, she was also a Girl Scout Troop co-leader and served on the Board of Directors of the Sangamon Valley Youth Symphony Orchestra. Most of all, she loved visiting and talking with family.
Angela is survived by her brother: Martin Ciotti; daughter Sarah (Matt) Porter; nephew Tony Ciotti; granddaughters: Hope Porter and Joy Porter; great-nieces and nephews: Richard Casarez, Autumn Casarez, Camille Howard, and Forrest Howard; and several cousins. She is preceded in death by her parents; husband; niece Erin (Ciotti) Howard; nephew Ryan Ciotti; and sister-in-law Flo Ciotti.
The funeral Mass will take place at 11:00 A.M. on Thursday, March 30, 2023 at St. Rita Catholic Church in Kincaid with Fr. Piotr Kosk officiating. Visitation will be held from 9:30 a.m. until the time of the service, in the church on Thursday. Burial will take place at Oak Hill Cemetery in Taylorville.
