NEW YORK — As “Mob Wives” star Big Ang is laid to rest Monday, her final wish has been revealed: that fans wishing to honor her memory would donate to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

This according to her verified Twitter account, which thanked fans for their love and support in the wake of the 55-year-old reality TV star’s death last week from stage 4 brain and lung cancer.

Born Angela Raiola, the New York native and larger-than-life personality was remembered by her neighbors as “incredibly kind,” and countless celebrities and fans have shared stories painting her as a generous individual.
