Obituary for Veronica M. George

Veronica M. George, 105, of Batavia passed away on Monday March 11, 2019 at Wyoming County Community Hospital. She was born on July 9, 1913 in Perkinsville, NY to the late Frank and Rose (Azzi) Schiavi. She is preceded in death by her two husbands Joseph Repicci and Robert George; brothers Egidio “Jiggs”, Frank and Charles Schiavi; sisters Pearl Monteau, Clara Albanese, Ann Barcelona and Gloria Scoto.

Veronica “Ronnie” was the oldest of eleven children with 7 sisters and 3 brothers, the Matriarch of the family. She was like a mother to many of her siblings and to a special nephew, Charles Schiavi. A business woman in Batavia for many years, her first beauty shop was above the JJ Newberry building on Main Street. She started in her early twenties and continued well into her seventies as it evolved into various business enterprises during her career including owning and operating the Triangle Motel and the Town Manor Motel with her husband Joseph. Ronnie was on the board of the Zonta Club, an organization with the mission of advancing the status of women. She was a lifetime member of St. Anthony’s Church. Veronica will be sorely missed by her family and all those who knew her.

Mrs. George is survived by her sisters Rose DiLaura, Lorraine Hoffmaster and Loretta Lamendola; along with many nieces and nephews.
