Following the reality star's death, we look back at her larger-than-life 55 years

THANKFUL UNTIL THE END

Despite the odds, Big Ang remained grateful in her last Instagram post, written four days before her death. "Today is a good day, it's my grandson Anthony's 1st birthday, and it's Valentines Day... I'm wishing you all love and well wishes. Thank you for your never ending support from little Louie and I," she said.
