Francesca Espinosa Obituary

We are saddened to announce the passing of Francesca Espinosa.  Francesca passed away into God’s loving arms after a lengthy battle with Corticobasal Degeneration.  She passed peacefully in her Fairview home surrounded by loved ones on February 10, 2024, at 78 years old.

Francesca was born March 13, 1945, to Antonio and Serafina Buonsanto in Molfetta, Italy. She was one of eight children.

Francesca was a seamstress for several years before finding her true passion in the beauty industry. She was a talented hairdresser and business owner for over 45 years until finally retiring in 2018.

Francesca was a loving and devoted wife to Rolando Espinosa for over 43 years.  They enjoyed each other’s company whether it was traveling, going to church or just galivanting about.

Francesca was truly one of a kind. Her spirit was uplifting to those around her.  She had a tremendous love for her family, especially her grandchildren, who held the key to her heart. Her sense of family was extraordinary.  She was a hard worker who enjoyed her career but was so much more. She touched so many lives with her many talents whether it was cooking Sunday dinners, sewing her grandkid’s costumes, singing with her voice of an angel, or painting her beautiful paintings.  She will be remembered always for all her kind heart, love, strength, faith, beautiful soul and wonderful smile.

Francesca had an unwavering faith in God, even in the most difficult times. She is now in God’s presence with her brothers, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, her parents and all her pups. She is survived by her husband, two loving daughters, two sons-in-law, seven beautiful grandchildren, two sisters, three brothers, twenty-four nieces and nephews and countless extended family members.
