In loving memory of

Francine Ferrari
February 7, 1943 - May 8, 2022

Born and raised in New York City's Little Italy, Francine Ferrari eventually moved to Queens with her family. After high school, she met her husband, Bob, whom she married in 1963. After vacationing in Arizona in the 70s, they decided to move to Scottsdale. This past November, they celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary. Fran was a realtor, then transitioned into the mortgage industry. Together with her husband, they opened Adelphi Mortgage, where her son, Robert, worked as well. Additionally, she became president of the Phoenix Area Association of Mortgage Brokers. She enjoyed traveling, especially when her whole family could be together, which was often. Her favorite places to visit included Flagstaff, Coronado, and Hawaii. She was passionate about cooking for friends and family. The only thing bigger than her personality was her tremendous love and care for her family. A beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and cousin, she is predeceased by her father, Joseph, her mother, Lucia, and her brother, Leo. Survived by her husband, Bob, her daughter, Susan and son-in-law John, her son, Robert, grandchildren, Jake and Katie, her brother, Charles, brother-in-law, Richard, and the Ferraiuolo family. She will be incredibly missed by those who had the privilege of knowing her.

"Bob,Susan , Robert and family I met Fran in 1986. I was 21 years old our husbands worked together at USAirways. She was so warm, caring and friendly. We became friends immediately. Our husbands a little loud and rowdy . I know she would read my face she would say , Susan stick with me don?t mind them. I can hear her now , ?guys stop or enough.? I never saw the age difference, she was my friend . I looked up to her, admired her and love her dearly. We have too many memories to count and would not have that any other way. My family will miss her always. You are in our hearts and prayers. Love Susan Zacchio "

"Joe and I met Fran and Bob about 11 years ago. We were immediately attracted to their energy and humor. Bob would tell a joke and Fran would throw her head back, laugh, and then say,?Don?t get him started?. She would invite us to dinner and there would be 10 courses. She never ran out of food. We shared many meals. We went to restaurants, their house and our house. It was always a good time. I(we) will miss Fran immensely. She was in our close group of friends. We celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and just because days. We are very lucky to have known this exceptional woman and call her our friend. We thank her for all the great memories she left us. Love you Fran, later! "
