The Northeast News has learned that longtime Kansas City Historian, Author, and Historic Preservation Advocate Dory DeAngelo passed away early this morning.

Born in 1932, DeAngelo was raised on Windsor Avenue. She was a staple in the Kansas City history community for decades and was active in a number of preservation efforts including the Liberty Memorial prior to its multi million dollar renovation that was completed in 2000.

DeAngelo also had a number of local history books to her credit including Voices Across Time, Passages Through Time and Kansas City Style, a work dedicated to Kansas City’s lost architecture, co-written with Jane Flynn.

DeAngelo also penned a column in The Northeast World, a community newspaper published by Jim Murray between 1986 and 1988.

In recent years she battled Alzheimer’s & Dementia. DeAngelo was 88 years old.
