Mary E. Cavallo of Williamsburg, Virginia passed away peacefully at the Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center on November 17, 2023. She is preceded in death by her parents Michael A. Cavallo Sr. and Sara Cozza of Chicago.
Mary was born on November 26, 1930 in Chicago, Illinois and years later graduated from Lucie Flower High School in that city with an interest in medicine that she pursued successfully her entire life. Mary earned her MT (ASCP) at the Wesley Memorial Hospital School of Medical Technology in 1953. She later earned a B.S. at Roosevelt University, Chicago (1977) to keep pace with her profession as it entered the age of computer science. Her urge to learn never stopped and when she finally joined Northwestern Memorial Hospital her responsibilities grew quickly from Technologist to Supervisor roles in four major laboratories within that large hospital!
When her 40 year career in medicine finally ended, it was time for Mary to retire and she moved to Williamsburg to join her younger brother, Michael Jr. and his wife, Mary, here in Williamsburg. Here her activities centered around her nieces, Pamela, Patricia, & Susan and their 8 children. Mary was also an active member of The Williamsburg Methodist Church, and a lover of five dogs that over the years have filled her life. She has many friends here in Williamsburg who can join our family in a celebration of life service at Bucktrout of Williamsburg on Friday, December 8th at 1:00 pm.
In lieu of flowers please donate to the Heritage Humane Society in memory of Mary E. Cavallo.
