Obituary for Yolanda Marie Giovannone


Yolanda Marie Giovannone (nee Catallo), 84, passed away peacefully on September 9, 2018 at Center for Hope Hospice in Scotch Plains, NJ. Yolanda was born in Paris, France, on May 8, 1934, and also spent time in Italy before moving to the United States in 1955 with her husband Antonio.

She raised her family in Newark, NJ and Springfield, NJ, and retired from her job at Air Cast In 1999. She and her husband, Antonio, traveled extensively. They enjoyed taking cruises and visiting family in Europe.

Yolanda will always be remembered for her beautiful and infectious smile, kind heart, and dedication to her family and friends. She loved to bake cookies for every occasion, and made the most delicious homemade pasta and sauce for Sunday dinner. Yolanda loved parties, dancing and having fun. She also loved perfume, jewelry, and fancy scarves; but absolutely hated snakes (even on television).

Yolanda was predeceased by her husband, Antonio Giovannone and by her siblings, Laura, Attillio and Alfredo. She is survived by her daughter, Anna Christakos (husband, Jeffrey); her son, Dominick (wife, Noreen); her four grandchildren, Tara Cooper (husband, Dan), Andrew Christakos (wife, Christine), Olivia Giovannone and Sophia Giovannone; and her great grandchildren Antonio and Gemma. She is also survived by her siblings, Honore and Suzanne.

Visitation will be at Dooley Colonial Home, 556 Westfield Ave., Westfield on September 12, 2018 from 4-8PM. The funeral will be from the funeral home on September 13, 2018 at 9:15 AM followed by a 10:15 AM funeral Mass at St. Helen’s Roman Catholic Church, 1600 Rahway Ave., Westfield. Entombment will follow at St. Teresa’s Cemetery in Summit. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Susan G. Komen or Center for Hope Hospice, Scotch Plains.
