Our condolences on the loss of Franca. Sad to learn that she has passed. We always enjoyed sharing a greeting in the neighbourhood. She will be missed by neighbours on Crawford.

My deepest condolences to you on the loss of such a lovely woman. Francescina, as I know her was a good friend to my lovely mother Gina and Aunt Franca who just lived a few doors down on Crawford and have since passed away. Not one mass would go by or a visit to my aunt's home when I wouldn't see her beautiful face and she was always quick to say hello and how are you. She indeed will be remembered by many with great fondness.

Jerry and Family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Franca, I remember throughout the ‘80, ‘90’s and beyond, an Icon at St.Frances, and the neighborhood. She will be missed BUT never forgotten.

Our deepest condolences to you all...Franca was our neighbour when we lived at 495 Crawford and she would always invite us over for coffee. She would often leave me beautiful things from her garden. Our prayers are with you all. Romina and Matthew Eaton
