Frances Capone passed away on February 14th, 2022 peacefully in her sleep at the age of 98. Frances was born on June 1st, 1923 in Eastchester New York the second youngest of 4 sisters. She would go on to meet the love of her life, Frank Capone, in 1944. They were married on May 8th, 1949 and they were together for 40 years before his passing in 1989. They had two sons Stephen and James Capone, both married to lovely wives, Steve married Cindy in 1985, and Jimmy married Barbara in 1981. She was a hands-on and very active Grandma to her loving grandchildren Jackie, Greg Capone, and Stefanie Galante. She was also a great-grandmother to 4 rambunctious boys James and Dominic Capone, and Matthew and Giovanni Galante.
Growing up Frances was the tom-boy of the family but loved being from a big family and often sharing many stories about herself and her sisters, Josie, Mary, and Betty. Growing up in the depression and World War II they had to be very creative to entertain themselves. The sisters and families stayed close celebrating many holidays together throughout the decades with their families.
Frances was an avid traveler often traveling with her husband and later her sons' families and friends. She has traveled all across the United States and internationally to Egypt, Israel, and Europe. She learned how to drive at 68 years old and was very independent after her husband's passing. She was always creative and had many projects brewing at the same time. Often sewing and making her own clothes and outfits for herself and her family. She had an especially excellent eye for finding the quirkiest jewelry to pair with her many outfits, often from the dollar store but that didn't matter she made anything look a million bucks. This love for jewelry only increased when she worked at her favorite job, as an employee at Saks Fifth Avenue warehouse for over 10 years.
She will be greatly missed by her family and friends, for her infectious personality and vivacious will for life. Often being the first and last one on the dance floor at family gatherings. This last dance is for her. Rest in Peace Frances the best grandmother, mother, sister, wife, and friend.
