Angeline Ann Milto, 85, of Indianapolis, passed away Saturday, June 6, 2015.
The ninth of 12 children, Angie was born March 22, 1930, in Indianapolis to Philip H. and Josephine (Miceli) Caito.
She grew up across the street from Holy Rosary Catholic Church and attended Holy Rosary School, where she met her childhood sweetheart and husband of nearly 62 years, Philip Milto Sr. They were married on April 30, 1950.
An excellent student, Angie graduated from St. Mary’s Academy and Indiana Business College and then worked in her family’s business (Phil Caito & Sons Produce) as a bookkeeper.
After marriage, she worked in sales and kept the books for her own family’s produce company (Phil Milto Produce) and in 1970, with her husband, founded Meridian Place Laundromat & Dry Cleaners (known as Milto Cleaners since 1988).
Angie cherished her family most of all and took great pride in caring and cooking for them. She will be remembered for her wonderful Italian meals, quick mind, fun-loving nature, keen business sense, strong faith, generosity, warmth and admirable style.
Angie is survived by her five children, Joanna Milto-Bergin (Kevin), Jodi Milto (JD Miller), Tony (Angela) Milto, Rose Milto and Philip (Tricia) Milto Jr.; and eight loving grandchildren, Anthony, Sophia and Paul Milto, Dominic St. Peters, and Nathan, Nicholas, PJ and Joey Milto.
She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; and her siblings, Magdalene, Philip Jr., Roy, Gus, Mike, Salvatore, Mary Jane, Providence (infant), Josephine (infant) and Providence Caito and Anna Rose Copeland.
Angie was a charter member of St. Barnabas Catholic Church.
The family would like to thank her loyal and loving caregivers, Jacinda and Amber, who have been a big part of her life for nearly 10 years.
