Viola Caggiano Obituary

Viola Caggiano, lovingly known to her family and friends, peacefully passed away on October 18, 2023. She was the devoted wife of the late Michael F. Caggiano and a cherished mother to Sandra Caggiano, Corinne Barisano, and her late husband Ronald, Michael F. Caggiano Jr. and his wife Pamela, and Cammy Green and her late husband Charles. Viola was also a beloved sister of the late Frances DiStasi, Orlando Bossi, Anna Manfra, Domenic Bossi, and Carmella DiRienzo.

Viola's legacy extended through generations, as she was a doting grandmother to Michael F. Caggiano III and his wife Kelly, and Krysta Caggiano and her husband Robb Brooks. She took immense joy in her role as a great-grandmother to Gianna, Michael, and John, cherishing each moment with them. Her love and warmth were felt by many loving nieces and nephews.

Born on July 26, 1926, Viola spent her entire life as a proud resident of East Boston. In 1954, she married the love of her life, Michael F. Caggiano, embarking on a journey filled with love and cherished memories. Viola had a passion for spending time with her family, enjoying spirited card games, and evenings filled with bingo. Tuesday nights were reserved for poker with her closest girlfriends, and she reveled in hosting holidays, upholding traditions, and preparing Sunday dinners that brought everyone together.

Viola was known for her open-door policy, welcoming all with open arms. Her home was a place of warmth and hospitality, where countless cherished memories were created.
