Francine M. Allonardo (Iaccarino)

Francine M. Allonardo of Northeast Philadelphia died peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at Holy Redeemer Hospital in Meadowbrook, PA.  She was 95.

Born in Philadelphia, Francine was the beloved wife of the late Joseph R. Allonardo, daughter of the late Peter and Jean Castoria Iaccarino, sister to the late Anthony, Salvatore, Louis Iaccarino, and Jean Brehm, and mother-in-law to the late Richard Stansbury and John Salera.

Francine was deeply devoted to her faith and was an active parishioner at Maternity B.V.M. Church and member of the Legion of Mary.  She served as a Eucharistic Minister who not only shared the Holy Eucharist with those at mass but also visited with those that were homebound.  Francine worked for many years up until her retirement after her 90th birthday with PNC Bank.  During the leisure time Francine had, she enjoyed spending time with her beloved family.  Francine will be greatly missed, but forever cherished by everyone whose life she had touched.

Francine is survived by her loving and devoted daughters: Margaret Pilotta and her husband Nick, Jean Stansbury, and Jolyn Salera and her companion James Lesniewski.  She is also survived by her three loving grandchildren, two great grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend her viewing from 9:00am until her Funeral Mass at 10:00am on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at Maternity B.V.M. Catholic Church, 9220 Bustleton Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19115. Interment will be private at a later date in Washington Crossing National Cemetery in Newtown, PA.
