Angela Marie Chiappelli also known by her stage name, Anjelia Pelay was born on Dec 31st, 1985 and lived all her life in Toms River, New Jersey before her career took her to Los Angeles, California. She was a graduate of Toms River High School East class of 2004. She was also a communicant of Saint Justin’s Church.

She made her name as a contemporary country pop singer described as, “Janis Joplin sings country.” Her songs were songs of strong women with fierce personalities battling unhealthy relationships while simultaneously exposing their vulnerability. Gifted from an early age she was a piano virtuoso at the age of five. She was also an accomplished choreographer who danced from the age of two. This multifaceted multitalented SAG actress appeared on tv shows, commercials, films and concerts. Described as exciting, ethereal, and heartbreakingly talented she was said to have the comedic timing of Goldie Hawn and the heart and warmth that Marilyn Monroe and Judy garland possessed. Joseph Chiappelli, was not only her father but her, muse, as well as the most important influence in her life. Their love of music became a dream realized when they formed their own band together called Anjelia and The Boy. Angela was a bright light in an otherwise dim world who truly touched the lives of everyone she met. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Angela is pre-deceased by her maternal grandparents Alice Banasiak (nee Rainey), and paternal grandparents Maria Tartaglia and Florido Chiappelli and Father Joseph F. Chiappelli. She is survived by her mother, Mary Chiappelli, her brother Joe, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Visiting hours will be Thursday, Jan. 16th, from 6pm to 9pm, at the Mastapeter Memorial Home, 270 Atlantic City Blvd., Bayville. Funeral Friday, 8:30am at the funeral home or meet at St. Justin’s Church, 975 Fischer Blvd., Toms River to celebrate an 10am Funeral Mass.

To the family of Anjelia,
I met her through a mutal friend, Alyson. She was so talented and beautiful. Anjelia and I had a good laugh watching Alyson sign her name on three 20 year old boys at a bar in Philadelphia when she posed for a calendar. Angelia will live on through her music.

Dear Mary and Joe,

I’m so sorry, and I have been beyond devastated over Angela’s untimely passing. Still, I’m struggling to process, that Angela is no longer with us. We all loved her dearly. Even fans, whom had never known her on a personal level, could feel her sweet, magnetic presence.

I admired Angela for the fact, that she never gave up on chasing after her passion, her music. She was an undeniably kind-hearted and talented spirit, who had possessed a glorious beauty, which not only illuminated from the outside, but also from deeper within. She always tried to instill confidence and hope within me; regardless of how many times our chronic diseases had affected us both. And with those matters between us, we had related to one another. I’m so sorry that I couldn’t make it there.

Each and every day, she will missed. May she be reunited with her beloved father, Joe.
Granted, Angela was too good of a person for this universe; however, she did not deserve to leave it behind.

With deepest sympathy,
Andi Viviano

40+ years in the music biz and I never met anyone more talented and nicer than Anjelia Pelay.

From the first time we saw her as Anjelia and The Boy at Val's in Rumson in the early 2010s to her return to the Asbury area music scene just recently, she was a bright, shining, charming ray of light who stood out in a scene that had many bright lights.

I did get to perform with her a couple of times and see her several times and she always left us wanting more.

A lot has been said of her beauty and talent, and while those are indisputable, they are not the first impressions that come to my mind when I think of her. You meet more than enough attractive looking people, and many who are talented.

I think mostly of her kind and gentle disposition, and thats what hurts the most, because those traits are what are most missing in this biz.

RIP Anjelia- your light will shine in the hearts of those who knew you forever.
