Alice Franceschina (Nee Schneider) 1925-2020 passed away on Wednesday July 8th at 7:25AM in her home with family at her side. Born January 29 1925 in Brooklyn, New York, Alice was raised in Flushing Heights, Queens County, New York and attended P.S.163, and Bayside High School. Alice won her B.A. Degree at Queens College of the City University of New York in 1946. She was a member of Alpha Lambda Omicron Sorority. Married in 1949 to Peter H. Franceschina , she became a stay-at-home mom until 1969 when she joined the Long Island Savings Bank as Sale and Service Supervisor for Savings Bank Life Insurance. In 1988 Alice and Peter came to Hernando County where she became secretary of the Rainbow Woods Homeowners' Association for over twenty years as well as Secretary of the New York State Club for almost as long, as well as Founding Member of the Ladies of Rainbow Woods Luncheon Group. She was predeceased by her husband Peter, brother Arthur and son Geoffrey in 2001, and is survived by her sons Peter,(Teresa) and David,(Lora), as well as grandsons Jeffrey, Joseph, and Christopher. Internment will be in Florida National Cemetery, in Bushnell, Florida on Wednesday July 15th 2020 at 1PM.
Friends of Alice no doubt know her to be a “driven” person with steadfast principles and a love of life, always striving to make every moment of her existence meaningful and productive. Family members, on the other hand, knew her to be the most loving, caring, and unselfish wife, mother and grandmother who readily sacrificed for any of us at the drop of a hat, who raised her children and grandchildren to know and understand discipline, respect, manners, morals, personal responsibility, love of country and again – a love of life.
Bon Voyage, Alice! Until such a time as we can meet again, you will be sorely missed.
Visitation will be on Tuesday July 14, 2020 at 2:00-4:00PM and 6:00-8:00PM at Pinecrest Funeral Chapel in Spring Hill FL with Service on Wednesday July 15, 2020 at 11:00AM followed by burial at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida at 1PM.
