On Friday, May 3, 2019, Violande “Micki” Acowitz, loving mother of four children, passed away at the age of 83.
Micki was born on November 13, 1935, in Mamaroneck, NY to Raphael & Jennifer DiRoberto. She was married twice and raised two sons, Scott and Todd, and two daughters, Dawn and Pyr.
Micki lived most of her life in Rye, NY where her passion for the beach was exceeded only by the long walks she shared with her friends and family. She also enjoyed singing in the church choir and teaching young children who often found solace in her care. Unknown to many, Micki was an avid fan of Southern rock, and she left many wondering who this Lynyrd Skynyrd fan is.
Micki was predeceased in death by her parents, Raphael & Jennifer, and her brothers John, Jerry, and Robert. She is survived by her sister, Florence, her loving children and grandchildren, Joseph, Robert, William, and Stephen.
A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, May 8, 2019, at St. Augustine’s Church in Larchmont, NY at 10:00 AM.
