Nancy Cavallaro

(Mar 15, 1924 to Dec 18, 2011)

She was a strong woman in motion. She never ate a meal sitting down and her days weren’t over till all her family’s needs were met. Nancy lived an organic lifestyle long before it was trendy. The farm was practically self sufficient: they raised everything they ate and Nancy tended to a 6 acre garden. Nothing ever went to waste. Sundays started with her making gravy (using canned tomatoes from her garden) and gathering her family for dinner.rnrn She worked shoulder to shoulder with her husband on their Repaupo farm where you’d regularly hear her singing “Sweet Caroline” in the fields. Most would view her life as hard: for her it was pure joy. Later years found her snatching up her grandkids to give them hugs and kisses, caring for her cats, crocheting afghans and doilies and tending to her flowers.rnrn Nancy married the man of her dreams, the late Fred. Their 46 year marriage was blessed with 7 children: the late Tom, Lucy (Frank) Pennell, Nancy Ann Cavallaro, Fred Jr., Mary Leonardi, John, and Tina (Sal) Leonardi; 17 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Mary Godfrey and was pre-deceased by three brothers, Tom, Joe and Dan Coco.rnrn Come celebrate 87 family centered years Wednesday 9-10 a.m. at Daley Life Celebration Studio, Swedesboro, where there will be a 10 a.m. service. Interment St. Joseph’s Cemetery. Leave a story of Nancy at lifecelebrationstudio.com.rn

    What a beautiful tribute to a wonderful woman. My Grandmom Nancy inspired me my whole life to life up to her name and be as strong in my life as I remember her. She will be in my heart forever.
