Angela 'Big Ang' Raiola's Life in Pictures

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


Raiola's son Anthony Donfrio married Gabriella Celestino on Aug. 28, 2015, in New York City. The mother of the groom told PEOPLE the luxe ceremony was "a wish and a dream come true. This was a once in a lifetime wedding," she said. "It was something out of a magazine. The flowers, the table setting, just the room itself. The feeling that I had. I can't even describe it. It was overwhelming."
