Angelena Sciortino "Angie" Ortego

Angelena Sciortino Ortego (Angie) passed away at Slidell Memorial Hospital surrounded by family and friends on Sunday, July 7, 2019, from complications of staph infection at the young age of 34.  She was born on December 14, 1984, in New Orleans, Louisiana and lived in Slidell, Louisiana for the past four years.  She is survived by her beloved husband, Jeremy Michael Ortego, of 13 wonderful years and four beautiful and adoring children: Payton Ortego (10), Jonathan Ortego (9), Bailey Ortego (2 ½), and Braydon Ortego (2 ½).

Angelena was the daughter of Michael Sciortino and Linda Jennewine Sciortino, the sister of Michael Sciortino (Cassie Sciortino) and Christina Sciortino Leal (Lucas Leal), and the half-sister of Toni Riser (Charlie Riser). She is survived by a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, family, and friends who loved her dearly.

Angelena (Angie) had a beautifully infectious smile that lit up the room. She had a fun-loving spirit, and enjoyed parties, family outings, and spending time with her loved ones. She was always the first one to say “I’m in” for whatever idea or get together. A part of our heart and soul left on July 7, 2019.  She is loved and will be sadly missed by all but never forgotten.

Relatives and friends are all welcome to attend the Celebration of Life Memorial on Saturday, July 20, 2019.
