Francine Mandarino, age 78, sadly left us on February 13, 2024. She was a beloved wife, amazing mother, and adored grandmother who is survived by her husband Giuseppe – the love of her life and her best friend. She was happiest when he was by her side. She is also survived by daughters Maria (Vassilios), Lucia (Ken), and Daniela; grandchildren Thomas, Joseph, Sofia and Christian; and sister Michelle.

Francine was known for her gentility, talent, beauty, style, and extraordinary kindness. Her standard of excellence in everything is evidenced by the family she created. Her ability to laugh easily was contagious. Francine was loved by everyone who knew her, and she has left behind a legacy of love and goodness.

    There is never enough time. I am happy to have shared moments of my life with a special person, elegant in his ways, nice, respectable. I would have liked these moments to have been much more but…… There is never enough time, may the earth be light on you dear Aunt.
