Leo Mangano, President of EBOA sent this out to all EBOA members...
"It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you of the sudden passing of Angie Celino, a long time member of the EBOA.
Many of you know Angie as a passionate, committed, and caring friend. She has given so much to the development of our young officials and has excelled on the court at the ACAC level. Her great smile will be dearly missed by all!
Our deepest sympathies are with Angie's family and friends. Please take a moment this Thanksgiving weekend to remember a great woman."
Bill Crowley, Canada West Supervisor sent this to officials throughout western Canada...
"Unfortunately, & very sadly, I must begin this morning by informing you of the very sudden passing of Angie Celino, a long time EBOA basketball official in Edmonton, and a great human being. Many of you would have met Angie at a basketball camp somewhere in Canada over the past number of years. She was a very hard working official, and although I did not know her really well away from the court, I am most certain that the charm that she brought to the class and the court were very prevelant in her every day life. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends."
Historically, Thanksgiving in Canada was celebrated early November, but since it sometimes conflicted with Remembrance Day, it was moved to the 2nd weekend in October. Maybe it's appropriate then that we can both remember Angie to reflect on a life taken too quickly and celebrate her bountiful contributions & service with thanks & appreciation.Joanna Wiegers & Kristen Kwiatek have created this page for those who would like to comment and send condolences: "A Memorial Page has been created for Angie Celino on the the ilasting.com website. Members are encouraged to share their thoughts, stories, and photos of Angie on this site: http://www.ilasting.com/angiecelino.php
You are also encouraged to send photos directly to Kristenkwiatek@gmail.com for the Tribute Photo Album.
Information regarding the Memorial Service will be forthcoming as soon as details become available."
