Mob Wives star Angela "Big Ang" Raiola has died due to cancer which she has been battling with for since 2015.

Feeling pain in her throat last year, Big Ang was diagnosed with strep throat and was given antibiotics, but when the pain continued she saw a throat specialist who found a tumor. She underwent surgery two times to remove said tumor and lymph nodes and was thought to be cancer free, but back in December it was revealed that the cancer returned. The cancer then spread to her lungs and brain.

By January, the chemotherapy was having no effect, Big Ang has stated that the casue of her cancer was her 40 years of smoking, "If you're smoking, quit now and if you've never smoked, don't start." She later passed at the age of 55 on February 21, 2016 with the presence of her husband, her children, and her six grandchildren.

The VH1 star has filled our homes with laughter and now tears. She will be remembered as a woman who took life head on. Starring in three different reality-tv shows, (Mob Wives, Big Ang, and Miami Monkey) I have compiled a serious of gifs in commemorate her and to have her make us laugh one last time.

Here she is putting a "b*tch* in her place.

Throwing some shade at a fellow cast member.

When told she should be drinking more water.

Here she is perfecting her tennis swing.

Finally, a last good-bye
