Big Ang’s family has shared the final photos of the “Mob Wives” star resting in her hospital bed shortly before dying of cancer. As Gossip Cop reported, Angela Raiola sadly died earlier on Thursday at age 55 following a battle with stage four lung and brain cancer. If so inclined, see her last photos below that her loved ones posted.

Big Ang’s niece Sonnie Detore posted an Instagram photo of herself kissing her aunt on the cheek while visiting her in the hospital. “You have my heart forever,” Sonnie began her lengthy tribute. “I miss your voice and your smile and your beautiful brown eyes. Even bald you were a star.” She added, “All the great memories we have will never be forgotten you are permanently in my heart… Rest peacefully my auntie.”

Big Ang’s other niece Jeannie, who’s Sonnie’s sister, also posted an Instagram photo of herself embracing the reality star during her final moments, accompanied by a lengthy tribute. She wrote, “You are our beautiful angel that is bigger than life… You weren’t just an aunt to me, you were my big sister, my best friend, and a role model.”

Earlier on Thursday, Sonnie and Jeannies’ mom, and Big Ang’s sister, Janine, reported the death of the “Mob Wives” star. “At 3:01 my beautiful sister got her wings she’s with our mom & dad,” Janine wrote on Instagram, along with an old photo of herself, Sonnie, and Jeannie with Big Ang. She further expressed, “We would like to thank everyone for your prayers and support.”

It should be noted, Big Ang’s nieces deleted their photos shortly after sharing them, but Gossip Cop still has the images. While we will not publish them on the site, if one is so inclined to see the photos her relatives posted online, click here and here.
