Obituaries » Edith (nee-DiMenna) Dallavalle

Edith Dallavalle (nee-DiMenna) was born in Newark on June 24, 1918 to Nicola DiMenna and Serina DiMenna.

The family moved to East Orange in 1930 and Edith graduated East Orange High School in 1937. In 1946, she married Charles Dallavalle, upon his return from European battlefield during WWII. Their union resulted in the birth of two children, Charles and Denise, who were raised in the Ivy Hills section of Newark. Edith was a remarkable intelligent woman with a tremendous work ethic, which she passed along to her children.

She managed the Personnel Department in Ohrbach’s Department Store in Newark for many years, before retiring from Howard Savings Bank in Livingston in 1984. In retirement, she enjoyed gardening, sewing and craft work for which she was famous at St. Ann Church’s Annual Craft Show. She had a talented pair of hands and there was nothing she couldn’t make.

She was extremely proud of raising and educating her children after the death of her husband in 1966.

Edith is survived by her children Charles and wife, Vivian and Denise Probst and husband John; as well as her five grandchildren Charles Dallavalle and wife Maria, Danielle McAuley and husband Ben, Anthony Dallavalle, John Probst Jr., Karen Hunt and husband Thomas and 12 great grandchildren.

Special thanks to her wonderful caregiver of 6 years, Keji.

She will be missed but what a wonderful ride she had.
