Viola E Prevete Obituary

Viola E. Prevete, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 6, 2024. She was surrounded by family who cherished her deeply.


Viola was born on October 19, 1953 in Staten Island, New York. As a teenager, she enjoyed being co-captain of her cheerleading squad at Saint Joseph by-the-Sea High School. Viola married her childhood sweetheart, Frank Prevete, on October 16, 1971. Both of them grew up on the same street in Staten Island; they were soulmates from the beginning.


Viola loved spending time with her family. She was the heart of our gatherings, always making sure everyone felt welcome and loved. Her home was a sanctuary of warmth and laughter where family gathered to share in her comforting presence with a side of feisty humor. Viola’s wisdom and guidance were invaluable; her selflessness and warmth were unparalleled. She placed the welfare of her family above all else, and remained the biggest advocate for our health, wellbeing, and happiness, even into her children’s adulthood. Her genuine concern was a staple of her love language. From our smallest accomplishments to our biggest mistakes, Viola was our loudest cheerleader. In 2017, Viola experienced the joy of becoming a grandmother, and shared a special bond with her grandchild, Keira, whom she adored beyond measure. Whether it was making pizza, gardening outside, or reading books, spending time with her grandchild was her ultimate joy.


Viola worked as an administrator at various school districts, most notably 27 years of dedication to the Bridgewater-Raritan Regional School District, where she held the role of Executive Assistant to the Principal at Hillside Intermediate School. She was given the Distinguished Service Award in May 2009 before retiring in December 2019. She was greatly loved and respected during her tenure and touched the hearts of all who knew her.


Together with her husband, Viola enjoyed participating in American Revolutionary and colonial reenactments and demonstrations. Her favorite pastime was colonial crafting, specifically 18th century fabric arts, such as spinning and weaving. She was immensely talented in making clothes, quilts, hats, scarves, table runners, embroidery, and much more. Viola also shared her beautiful talents with the world during events and educational programs, showcasing her passion for history and dedication to our country’s heritage.


Viola will be remembered by her deep faith; her unyielding devotion was a testament to her courage. Despite the challenges she faced throughout her life, she remained steadfast. We’re thankful her faith provided her comfort and strength even at the darkest times. She was always a fighter for what she loved and believed in, and her faith was no exception.


Viola is survived by her beloved husband Frank, her daughter Corissa and son-in-law JC and their daughter Keira, her son Douglas and his fiancé Nikole, and her son Thomas and his partner Michael. Her memory will forever remain in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know her.


Rest in peace, dear Viola. You will be deeply missed. Your legacy of love will live on in all of us.
