Obituary

IDA CAVIGLIA, age 90, a long-time resident of San Mateo, passed away peacefully on December 28, 2021 on her 90th birthday. She was dearly beloved aunt to Joanne Aiello (Vic Aiello, Vikki – Daniel – Jacob Wright, Jennine – Phillip, Nico and Lilly Pearson) and Godmother to Sandy Cardinale (Nicole Menefee). She is survived also by many cousins in the San Francisco Bay Area. She was preceded in death by dear "sister" Lillian DiPego.

She was born on December 28, 1931 in San Francisco to mother Argene Nutini and father Bepito (Benny) Caviglia. She worked 25 years at the Emporium in Stonestown, with Gloria, and was a top sales associate for all those years. Customers used to go in the Emporium to buy one shirt and walk out with 3 pairs of pants, 2 belts, 3 shirts and a pair of shoes. She was the ultimate salesperson. She was the "Rona Barret" of her time. Anyone that met her would instantly feel comfortable telling their whole life story to her. Her favorite pass time was watching football and talking to Al endlessly of what team was going to win the weekly match ups. Her track record was really good.

The last 5 years, Ida was met with the biggest challenge of her life, the demon dementia. In the early stages she fought it until it eventually got the best of her. The awesome care she received from Rosa, Fern, Razil and the last year at Peninsula Reflections found her with peace and harmony.

We will miss her, but her highly contagious laugh will live with us forever. Rest in Peace Ida and God Bless!!!
