Obituary of Frances Ann Galluzzo

Frances A. Cassalia Galluzzo, 98, a life-long resident of Syracuse, passed away in peace on June 3, 2020. Throughout her long life, she endeared herself to all she met through her vibrant kindness and love. Fran’s warm and friendly presence always made everyone she encountered feel welcome and cared for. She was a devoted and beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Early in life, she was an assembler at Easy Washer, a painter at Syracuse Ornamental, and a salesclerk at McCrory’s department store. She was a faithful communicant of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church and through the church, volunteered at St Joseph’s Hospital for many years. Fran enjoyed being with family at weekly dinners and family picnics filled with Italian music, bocce, and lawn darts. Other favorite activities included sewing, gardening, drawing and decorating her home. She also enjoyed playing Bingo at the American Legion, board games with friends and family, and occasional trips to the casino. Visitors to her home were lucky to enjoy her homemade Italian cooking and baking, which included her infamous cream puffs and pizzelles. Her humble, thoughtful and giving spirit came through in everything she did. She will always be loved and forever missed.
