Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, the “Mob Wives” star who died on Thursday at age 55 after a battle with cancer, will be remembered at a funeral service on Monday.

According to a Book of Memories page set up for Raiola, her service will take place Monday at 9:30 a.m. at Basilica of Regina Pacis in Brooklyn, after which she will be buried at Resurrection Cemetery in Staten Island.

Four visitations are set for this weekend at the Scarpaci Funeral Home in Brooklyn, two each on Saturday and Sunday.

Raiola, who joined the cast of VH1’s “Mob Wives” in 2012 and soon became a fan favorite, was diagnosed with stage 4 brain and lung cancer last month.

According to a statement on Raiola’s official Twitter account by family spokesman Vinnie Medugno, Raiola died at 3:01 a.m. Thursday “surrounded by nothing but love from her immediate family, and closest friends.”

Raiola was the niece of the late Salvatore “Sally Dogs” Lombardi, a captain of the Genovese family.
