Bonnie Ann Savino, 67


Bonnie Ann Savino, 67, of Millsboro, Del., and formerly of Yorktown Heights, N.Y., passed away at home on July 15, 2018.

Born in Peekskill, N.Y., to the late Edgar Nathanael Davey and Doris May Gaudinier Davey, she earned a technical certification in computer operations from the state’s Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES). Shortly after graduation, she began working for AT&T as a data processor. She immensely enjoyed her career and left only to care for her growing family.

In 1971, she married Emil P. Savino Jr. of Mahopac, N.Y., and began a loving marriage that lasted more than 47 years. Together they raised four children before eventually following their retirement dreams to Delaware.

She is fondly remembered for her remarkable and warm ability to strike up a conversation with anyone she encountered. She enjoyed baking, loved her feline friends and adored her two granddaughters, Emily Savino and Natasha Savino.

Savino is survived by her husband, Emil; her children, Jamie Savino of South Padre Island, Texas, and Robert N. Savino-Caraballo and Nelson Savino-Caraballo, both of New Windsor, N.Y., Rebecca Savino of Millsboro, Del., and Michael and Sue Savino of New Fairfield, Conn.; a brother, Robert Davey of Peekskill, N.Y.; her aunt and lifelong friend, Cheryl Ford; a large, beloved extended family; and many friends.

A memorial service and celebration of Savino’s life was scheduled for, July 19, 2018, at Watson Funeral Home in Millsboro, Del., with the Rev. James Van Der Wall officiating. Flowers are welcome. Memorial contributions may also be made to Delaware Hospice; 100 Patriots Way; Milford, DE 19963. Condolences may be sent online at www.watsonfh.com.
