February 07, 1943 - May 08, 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.
