Jean Colangelo, 91, of Weirton, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 27, 2023, at Serra Manor.

She was born on March 14, 1932, in Pittsburgh, PA, one of three children born to Philip and Santina Pulia Randa.

On July 20, 1953, she married John J. Colangelo. Together, they were blessed with two sons, John N. (Joyce) and Philip M. (Cathy) Colangelo. In addition to her sons, Jean leaves behind a legacy of family that includes two grandchildren, Renea Cherepko and Johnny Colangelo, as well as four great-grandchildren, Brooklynn, Bella, Rocco, and Norah; and her two brothers, Tom and Sal Randa.

Jean’s family was her pride and joy, and she cherished every moment spent with them.

She was a devoted member of Saint Joseph the Worker Roman Catholic Church and the Christian Mothers.

Jean was also a former member of the Pleasant Valley Country Club, where she enjoyed pursuing her passion for golf. Her talent and dedication to the sport were evident in her remarkable achievement of recording two holes-in-one.

Jean was not only a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother but also a talented homemaker. Her culinary skills were renowned, and her delicious meals brought warmth and happiness to family gatherings. She also had a green thumb and took great pleasure in gardening, cultivating vibrant flowers and tending to her garden with love and care.

On April 29, 2017, Jean faced the loss of her beloved husband, John. Though their time together came to an end, their love and the memories they created together live on in the hearts of their family and friends.

Jean will be remembered for her unwavering faith, her love for her family, her passion for golf, her culinary talents, and her green thumb. She leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, and dedication that will continue to inspire those who had the privilege of knowing her.

  2. John, Phil, and Colangelo Family,
    Your mom was a fantastic lady who lived a wonderful life. She (and your dad) were always kind to all of us. She was always happy and full of life. May God grant you all comfort, but I’m sure you’ll relish the memories your folks provided. With our love,

  3. Johnny and Phil,

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Your mom was an amazing lady that I loved dearly. So many great times at your house growing up and Jean could not have made us feel more welcome. She is the only person in my life that called me Danny and I will always remember that. Such an amazing sense of humor and just a joy to be around. I always so looked forward to stopping by and saying hello when I would visit Weirton. I pray that the many happy memories help you during this difficult time. With all my love, Dan Manack
