Carol Salvagni Obituary

Herkimer - Carol J. Salvagni, 68, beloved wife of Robert Salvagni, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, March 20, 2022, at St. Elizabeth Medical Center, Utica, NY. 

She was born July 8, 1953 in Ilion, NY the daughter of the late Ernest J. and Violet  (Harter) Burns. Carol was a graduate of Ilion High School and later attended Herkimer County Community College. 

On April 6, 1974, Carol was united in marriage to Robert Salvagni at the Ilion Methodist Church. 

Carol was last employed at the former Evening Telegram newspaper in Herkimer. Prior to that she worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield in New Hartford. She also worked for the Schools Out Day Care and after School Program in Herkimer. 

Carol devoted herself to be a loving and caring wife, mother and grandmother. She always put the needs and concerns of her loved ones first. She was the happiest when she was surrounded by her grandchildren. In her leisure, she along with her husband Bob, enjoyed testing their luck at the local casinos. Carol enjoyed talking with everyone she ran into and especially having coffee talks on the porch with her sisters. 

Survivors include her devoted husband of 47 years, Robert; a daughter, Jennifer Salvagni; sons, Jason (Jessica) Salvagni and Jonathan Salvagni; sisters, Beverly (Joseph) Lopata, Linda O'Keefe and Colleen Burns; a brother, Jerry Burns; three cherished grandchildren, Dominick, Jordan and Isabelle Salvagni; in-laws, Barbara and Dominick Stagliano and MaryAnn and Gary Jones; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
