Angela Ng


Angela Lau Ng, age 68, of Ringwood passed away peacefully on November 27, 2017 while receiving the loving care of her family.

Angela was born and raised in Toisan, China to Chok and Waisin Lau. Shortly after graduating High School, Angela set out to the United States in search of a better life and the “American Dream.” Not long after arriving the United States, she was introduced to a young man named Newton Ng in New York City by a mutual friend. They’re first night out together was a double date with some friends. They dated for a short time and as fate would have it, they fell in love and were married on Mother’s Day, May 10, 1970. Soon after getting married they settled in Bloomfield, NJ. During their time in Bloomfield, the couple had their first child, Vivian. They lived there for approximately two years and then moved to Chicago, IL. Angela and Newton moved back to New Jersey again after a few years and this time settled in Lodi, NJ. Following their move back to New Jersey, Newton and Angela celebrated the birth of their second child, Edmund. It was shortly after Edmund was born, when Angela and Newton bought their home in Ringwood, NJ. They would call Ringwood their home for the rest of their lives together and would raise both of their children.

Angela worked after getting married but stopped after her daughter Vivian was born.  Angela then decided to put any employment that she had or money she could earn aside and devote herself to nurturing and caring for her family. Angela truly flourished as a Homemaker, she was always there for her husband and her children and would do anything for them. Angela remained a Homemaker for more than sixteen years, then courageously decided to return to the workplace. She earned a position as an Assembler at Maquet in Wayne, NJ. She worked there for twenty-five years until her retirement a few years ago.

One of the things that Angela loved to do was travel. She traveled to almost every corner of the globe, she and her husband Newton often traveled by cruise ship. Some of their most memorable vacations were cruising through the Panama Canal, a cruise around the entire continent of South America and their land tour of China. While traveling, Angela and Newton were often joined by Angela’s sisters and their families and friends. While traveling was one of her greatest passions, shopping was the other. Angela loved to shop, and it didn’t matter what she was shopping for, she truly enjoyed it. She was also quite a wonderful cook of American and Chinese food. Her husband and children knew every night there would be something delicious on the dinner table waiting for them. Aside from all of Angela’s talents, hobbies and passions, her greatest love was for her family. She was a devoted wife, cherishing forty-seven years of loving and loyal marriage with her husband Newton. She was also a loving mother and grandmother. Nothing was more important to Angela than spending time with her family. Angela was a very special person who touched the lives of many people, she will be sincerely missed by all who knew her.

Angela is survived by her husband Newton of Ringwood, her daughter; Vivian VanHorn and her husband Britton of Odenton, MD, her son; Edmund Ng of Nutley, NJ, four sisters; Shuet Ming Chin of New Milford, NJ, Lorna Mah of Edmonton, Canada, Julie Lee of Edmonton, Canada, and Feng Ming Eng of Bridgeport, CT, two brothers; Yen Ming Lau of New York City, NY, and Steven Lau of Morris Plains, NJ, and three grandchildren; Eric VanHorn, Nora VanHorn, and Shea Ng, one sister-in-law; Lanai Jung of Lehigh Acres, FL, and one brother-in-law; Martin Ng of Lehigh Acres, FL, and many nieces and nephews.
