Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Violet (Cookie) Graziano Vullo, age 73, of Taylor, died at home surrounded by family Friday morning after an illness.
Born in Old Forge, daughter of the late James and Violet Evans Graziano, Violet was a graduate of Old Forge High School class of 1964, where she was proudly named “Miss Devilette.” Violet graduated from Lackawanna Beauty School in 1965 and worked as a beautician before beginning a family. While raising her four children, she worked at the Globe Store as assistant to the VP of operations and at Allied Services Heinz Rehab Hospital as assistant to the director of volunteers.
As a young mother, she was program director and her daughters’ coach for the Taylor Lions Junior Football Cheerleading team and a member of the Vullo Motors team of the Missy Mom’s softball league in Taylor.
Her family being the focal point of her life, Violet unconditionally supported her children in all their endeavors. She was a talented crafter and shared many mementos which are now cherished keepsakes. Violet leaves behind countless memories to be passed down through generations, ensuring her legacy will live on forever. She had a deep love for animals, especially her beloved furbabies, Mia and Shadow. She will always be missed. Violet took great solace in her strong Roman Catholic faith. She was a devoted member of St. Ann’s Basilica Parish, where she was also part of the church’s Rosary Guild.
She is survived by her loving family, four children, Kimberly Vullo and husband, Paul Benson, of Richmond, Va.; Tamara (Tami) Vullo and boyfriend, Ron Petrunich, of Taylor; and twin sons, Philip Vullo and wife, Kara, of Spring Brook Twp.; and Jamie Vullo, of North Abington Twp.; five grandchildren, Dominic, Lucas, Gabriel, Isabella and Scarlett Vullo; two siblings, Julie Ann Muth and husband, Fred, of Taylor; and John Graziano and wife, JoAnne, of Old Forge; and many nieces and nephews.
Two siblings, James (Jimbo) Graziano and Phyllis Manganiello, also preceded her in death.
With sincere and heartfelt gratitude, her family wishes to thank Dr. Pyone Myat Mon; the staff of Allied Hospice Services, especially Danielle, Barbara, Megan, Rebecca and Kelly for their collective kindness, care and compassion during such a difficult time; and dear friends, Patti Taylor, Carol Aulisio, George Aulisio and Julie Aulisio for the joy they brought to her life.
A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for Wednesday at 10 a.m. at St. Ann Basilica, 1250 Saint Ann St. in Scranton, to be celebrated by the Rev. Francis Landry, C.P., pastor. Private interment, Old Forge Cemetery.
Those wishing to say their goodbyes are asked to attend the Mass.
