Obituary for Violette Fargo

Violette (Violet) Fargo nee Farrauto, passed away on July 26 in Staten Island at the age of 83.

Violet, a longtime resident of Staten Island, was born in Brooklyn to Salvatrice (Salvaggio) and Salvatore Farrauto on May 15, 1937. Salvatore, Salvatrice, Violet and her brother Leonard moved to the Lower East Side of Manhattan on Eldridge Street where she attended grade school at PS91 on Stanton Street and junior high school at PS65. She was a communicant at what is now the Church of the Epiphany, Roman Catholic Church on 2nd Avenue in Manhattan.

The family moved to Bensonhurst when Violet was 15 where she attended and graduated from New Utrecht High School. Violet married Charles Johnson in 1959 and moved to Great Kills in Staten Island 10 years later where she has since resided and raised her sons Eric and Gregg.

Violet was a Bookkeeper and Administrator in the automobile industry for over 50 years. She worked for Alpine Pontiac in Bay Ridge Brooklyn and Woodbridge Lincoln Mercury from which she retired in the early 2000’s. Violet loved to travel especially to her favorite cities – Paris and Italy. She even named her 2 year old cat – Paris. In 2013, Violet, her brother Leonard and sister in law Beverly, traveled to Italy and the family hometown of MonteDoro Sicily to visit with many first cousins and Farrauto family members and had a wonderful time connecting with them.

She is survived by her son Gregg, daughter in law Andrea and grandchildren Gregg Jr., Dean, and Kelly Grayce Johnson of Old Bridge NJ; grandchildren Nicholas, Benjamin, and Xander Johnson of Gainesville Fl; her brother Leonard Farrauto, and sister in law Beverly of Westhampton NY; step-children Eddie Farkouh and Lisa Mannarino as well as numerous cousins and extended family both here and in Italy.

She was small in stature but had a huge personality - she often told the younger members of the family to unapologetically be themselves.

Violet was very social and will be dearly missed by her many friends from her early days in Brooklyn and later years in Staten Island.

Violet was celebrated by family on July 31, and Rests in Peace at Forest Green Park Cemetery in Marlboro NJ.

Dearest Violet
After my mother passed away I met your son Eric in Turks and Caicos. Two Days Later Eric showed up at my office and Three sons and 20 years later was such a love story. But when I met you, Violet I felt like I still had my own mother with me. You helped take away the hurt from my mothers passing. I will always be grateful to you for that. will treasure all the time,laughs and conversations we had. I have missed you these past few years and I am sorry that we didnt get a chance to reconnect. I loved you like my own mother and will keep you in my heart alway.

Violet, what can I say? You were a beautiful individual in so many ways. You knew just how to light up a room when tensions were high or how to grab center stage to give others a good laugh with your witty jokes and sense of humor when the situation called for it. Although I knew you for about nine years, I feel like you were my long lost friend and like a mother to me. We grew especially close in the past few months when Marty became ill. We just had that connection that would normally take many people years to develop. Violet, you will always be very special to me because we consoled each other at a difficult time in both of our lives. I will always think of you as a confidant and dear friend. I love you and will remember you forever. Rest In Peace dear friend until we meet again. God bless you!

Violet, your presence will be sadly missed at our yearly get togethers.
You always had a smile on your face and a snarky comment to follow.
I love you and will miss you terribly.
