Her home was always full of love for all who entered. She loved to spend time with her family, pray the rosary, cook, bake, garden and knit. Saveria was a devout Catholic who prepared her entire life to meet her savior Jesus Christ.

She is survived by her daughter Liliana (Eric) Waters; grandchildren: Jena (Andrew) Blize, Bailey Waters, and Nicholas Waters; great grandchild, Lily Blize; Brother, Vincenzo Scorpiniti of Terravecchia, Italy; and many nieces and nephews in Italy and the United States.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; daughters, Isabella and Domenica Bonanno; brothers, Domenico, Antonio and Francesco Scorpiniti.

The family would like to sincerely thank the devoted caregivers from Kavanagh House that touched her life, with kindness and love. Memorial contributions may be directed to Kavanagh House.
