Violet (Malinowski) Cavanna, born September 13, 1919 in Passaic, and known to many as Aunt Vi, died peacefully and surrounded by family on Saturday, June 17, 2017. Violet spent much of her youth at the Connie and Piela shore cottages at Camp Osborne. She inherited these from her father, enabling her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and many others to experience the same wonders of the Jersey Shore she loved so much. She adored children, and will be missed by several generations whose lives she touched in some way. Violet is fondly remembered for her pierogi, stuffed cabbage, and chicken cutlet with lemon…and we can’t forget the incredible smell of cookies baking at her home always. Going to visit her guaranteed you would be fed very well, and come home with pie. She spent her free time crocheting, and left behind many beautiful blankets, scarves, and shawls for her loved ones to enjoy. Violet was preceded in death by her siblings, Alfred Malinowski and Matilda Sebeck, and her loving husband of 74 years, Anthony Cavanna. Anthony cherished her with every cell in his body, and we all take comfort knowing they are reunited now for eternity, as they were an amazing example of true and devoted love. She is survived by her children, Anthony (Don) Cavanna, Judith Peretti, and Thomas Cavanna, as well as her 8 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren, and 4 great-great grandchildren. Violet was a true lady till the end. Come celebrate her long and blessed life with loving family at Megaro Memorial Home in Belleville. Viewing Tuesday 4-8pm. Funeral 8:30 am Wednesday. Mass 10 am Immaculate Conception Church, Newark. Interment Holy Cross Cemetery, North Arlington. Flowers are welcome and appreciated. Violet absolutely loved all flowers of any kind.
