Violet Masciandaro grew up in Brooklyn, New York in a large Italian household. Her parents, Giovanni (John) and Celia Randazzo did their best to always provide a loving, generous home for each of their seven children. In heaven, Violet has now been reunited with her family.

Born on December 24, 1926 she was an early Christmas present. Raised and educated in Brooklyn she was a very talented furrier and worked for years in the industry. She later worked in shipping and receiving at the Hazeltine Corporation in Greenlawn, NY. Violet and her late husband, Anthony lived on Long Island until they retired and moved to Florida where they lived many years and enjoyed Florida living in Pompano and Boynton Beach. Violet loved being with her family and friends, cruise excursions with Anthony and many good times on their boat.
