Angela J. Holuba

Angela Josephine Holuba (nee Randazzo) 101, loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, died on October 25, 2022.  She was born on January 5, 1921 in Jersey City, NJ, the youngest of 4 children and a first-generation American.  She married the love of her life, Stanley Holuba on June 24, 1945. Together they built Stanson, a private label detergent manufacturer and raised two sons together, Stanley and Robert.   After her first husband’s passing and 41 years of marriage, she married Frank Montalbano in 1988 and enjoyed another joyful 16 year marriage until his passing.  She was a longtime resident of Closter, NJ and a devout Roman Catholic.  Holuba Hall, the indoor football practice facility at Penn State University, was named in honor of her late husband Stanley and funded by Angela’s philanthrophy.  Her vibrant personality, quick wit, big laugh, generosity, and love of food and cooking will long be remembered by all who knew her.

Angela, the matriarch of the Holuba family, is survived by her devoted son, Robert Holuba of Palm Beach, Florida and her beloved grandchildren Lauren Holuba, Robert Holuba, Frances Holuba Lanzone, Jack Holuba and Kurt Holuba.  Over the past twelve years, she has thoroughly enjoyed her eight great grandchildren, Alexander, Charlotte, Grace, Tristan, Haven, Tripp, Delaney and Gisella Mia, drinking countless cups of pretend tea and instilling in them her love of Italian family traditions.  She was predeceased by her son Stanley Holuba, husbands Stanley Holuba and Frank Montalbano, sisters Nancy Marcello and Sadie Angelo, brother Salvatore Randazzo, her father Salvatore Randazzo and her mother Mariannina Piscitello.

Angela is buried with her late-husband Stanley Holuba in George Washington Memorial Park Cemetery in Paramus, NJ.  Any condolences may be sent to Pizzi Funeral Home in Northvale, NJ and any contributions in her name can be made to ProMedica Hospice Memorial Fund at



    God has blessed us all with Angela in our lives. Her love and emotions for life, family and friends was amazing.

  3. Bobby, I’m so sorry to hear about your mom’s passing, a lot of good memories, sounds like she lived a full life. One of my memories was when we had our eighth grade dinner dance at the Norwood Public School. All the boys were wearing our white dinner jackets for the dance. A bunch of us we fooling around in the kitchen area, and I got hit with blueberry’s on my white jacket,lol. Your mom took me in the kitchen and got the blueberry stain out of my jacket. Sounds funny, but I never forget that act of kindness. Hope all is well with you and your family. I still live in Norwood, I worked for Norwood Police for 43 years, again, condolences to you and your family, Rick Sposa

      I remember us playing basketball. What a lasting impression Angela’s act if kindness left on you. It’s makes me happy to read your white jacket tale. 43 years a Norwood policeman. Impressive! I remember Sarge would open the jail cell when I delivered the Record to the Station in late ‘50’s. . How was Chief Sposa I remember the name related to you ? My Parents moved to Closter in 1968 and I moved to Florida in 2010. Thanks for sharing your memory of my mother with you.
      Best Always
