Our family is remembering the long and well lived life of Aurora, accountant, educator, wife, mother, sister, aunt, friend, Grandmother and Great-grandmother.
Aurora was born in Brooklyn New York to Mary and Joseph Savoy; the second of four girls. Aurora attended New York City Public schools, graduating High School and starting college at age 16. After graduating college, she became an account for U.S. Rubber company and later took a job at Bankers Trust Co.
Aurora met and married Daniel Larocca after being invited to a welcome home from World War II party by her friend Geri, Daniels only sister. Aurora later had three children, Daniel Jr., Joseph, and Mary. At age forty-four Aurora returned to the workforce as a teacher and quickly advanced her career becoming a District-level administrator.
After retiring, she enjoyed playing bridge, traveling, playing golf, and watching her grandchildren.
Aurora is predeceased by her husband of seventy years and her son Daniel Junior. She is survived by her son Joseph (Eileen), daughter Mary (Bill), six Grandchildren, and two Great Grandchildren.
She had a great run......
In lieu of flowers, the Larocca family has asked that donations be made to one of Aurora's favorite places in her later years:
