Angela A. DiOrio (Sormanti),  of Johnston, RI passed away peacefully in her home on July 21, 2019, at the age of 97 surrounded by love.  She was the daughter of the late Theresa (Sanchirico) Sormanti and Joseph Sormanti.  Angela was the beloved wife of the late Lawrence DiOrio for 68 years, and they were each other’s soulmate.  She was the adored sister of the late Ann Cinquegrana and Robert Sormanti.
