            Betty Jane “Cookie” Vivona, 75, passed away peacefully in her home on April 28, 2020 after a long battle with cancer surrounded by her loving family. She was born on July 17, 1944 in Staten Island, New York to William and Norma Bradley. Betty was married to Frank Vivona, who preceded her in death in 2013.


            Betty lived her childhood in Staten Island, and graduated from New Dorp High School. She met Frank through his sister, Josephine, and the rest is history. They married in Staten Island in November 1963 before moving to Southern New Jersey in 1971.


Betty worked as a long-time employee of Video Vision in Bridgeton, NJ, where she met and befriended many. At the close of the store, she went on to work for Cumberland Insurance until recently. She enjoyed cooking for her family, playing cards, and doing crafts. Her greatest joy was being a mother, a grandmother, and a great-grandmother.
