Evelyn Viafora, 89, passed away on Friday, September 20, 2019. She grew up in Staten Island, NY and was a long-time resident of Edison, NJ for almost 55 years before moving to GA in 2018.
Evelyn was born in Chicago, IL to the late Peter and Anna Landvogt. She is predeceased by her husband Douglas K Viafora (d.2017), her sister Laverne Ryan, and brothers Donald and Robert Landvogt.
She is survived by her children, Robert D. Viafora and his wife Karen of Allentown, NJ; Janet L. Mannasse and her husband Paul of Rivervale, NJ; Douglas G. Viafora and his wife Kim of Pittsburgh, PA; and Kenneth J. Viafora and his wife Janet of Alpharetta, GA; eight grandchildren including Daniel, Bobby, Michael, Tommy, Sam, Joseph, Matthew, and Rachel; her sister Virginia Johnston of Three Bridges, NJ, and well as many nieces and nephews.
Evelyn loved all types of activities especially golf, swimming, ice skating, bike riding, and taking trips to Cape May, NJ. She was also a regular bridge player and formed many close friendships through the years. However, most of all, she loved spending time with her eight grandchildren and watching them grow up. Evelyn was a very special person who will be sorely missed by all, but we are grateful to have had such a wonderful, kind, and caring mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Francis Cathedral, Metuchen, NJ on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 10:15 am. Entombment will follow in Franklin Memorial Park, 1800 Route 27, North Brunswick, NJ 08902.
