Marion Constance Karaffa Obituary
Marion Constance Karaffa, 81, of Homosassa, Florida, passed away March 19, 2016.
Formerly of Tuckerton, New Jersey, she had resided in Crystal River then in Homosassa for 23 years. She was born April 11, 1934, in Bronx, New York, to the late Joseph and Irene Scotko.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 45 years Edward Karaffa, Sr., and two sons, Edward Karaffa, Jr. and Michael Karaffa.

Marion was also known as Moms or mommoms to all who loved her in New Jersey and Florida.
Words from her granddaughters: "Our grandmother was such a selfless person." If she thought we were mourning her, she would yell at us….. We were so blessed to have spent so many years with her. She is the reason that we have such giving hearts and there is no doubt about that! She was such an amazing woman and always put her children first. We can only aspire to be half the woman she was. We are sad she is gone but we are happy she's finally with her boys and the love of her life. We will never, ever forget you. We love you so much. She was our Angel on Earth and now our Angel in Heaven.
The family will receive friends at Strickland Funeral Home, Crystal River Saturday March 26th from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. with A Celebration of her Life starting at 2 p.m. Family and friends are invited to attend afterwards at the home of Tabatha Snook, 6409 Seven Rivers Drive, Crystal River, Florida 34429. Arrangements are under the direction of Strickland Funeral Home and Crematory, Crystal River.
