Paulette DeAngelis

It is with great sadness we announce the sudden death of Paulette DeAngelis on Thursday, June 25, 2020 at the age of 73. Beloved wife of artist Joseph DeAngelis for 50 years. Proud mother of Joseph DeAngelis Jr. and wife Cora Miller. Loving Grandma of Gabriella, Jacob, Aden and Gabriel. Paulette was born in Dighton Massachusetts to parents Irene and Richard Whitmore, both pre-deceasing her. She is survived by her brother Ronald Whitmore (Jeanne) of Dighton Mass. and sisters Patricia Steadman of Palestine, Illinois, and Donna Cass (Peter) of Jacksonville, Florida, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Paulette was a graduate of South Eastern Massachusetts University with a degree in Medical Technology. She was a Registered Medical Technologist, and worked for hospitals in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Hotel Dieu, Windsor, and for many years at Gamma Dynacare Laboratories in Windsor. When she married Joe, she fell in love with art and took ceramic courses at the University of Windsor’s School of Visual Arts. She became quite a proficient potter, and for many years she operated a pottery studio in Lasalle called “The Potters Four”, with three other potters. Together, they gave pottery lessons and Paulette exhibited yearly at Art in the Park. She was a voracious reader, loved Elvis, as well as attending Jazz concerts at Mackenzie Hall with Joe and Grace. Paulette had a love of life, an infectious smile, and a great sense of humour, which was necessary living with Joe. She enjoyed telling stories, talking with family and friends, playing Mexican Train Dominoes and especially shopping. Paulette travelled extensively with Joe when he was teaching summer courses in Spain, Italy and France, and she even helped him with his sculpture in Chang Chun, China. One year while Joe was on sabbatical, they lived in Florence and Venice. Paulette especially loved cooking and entertaining her grand-children in the Cayman Islands. She was famous for her home-made pizza, served at many of Artcite openings. She will be greatly missed by many loving family and friends in Canada and the United States. Paulette was truly Joe’s “North Star”.

According to her wishes, cremation has taken place, and a celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

If you so desire, donations in Paulette’s honour may be made to the Arthritis Society, and would be appreciated by the family.
