I feel so blessed to have great memories of Frankie from the wonderful years I spent living at Que’s house on Maranda Street! I’ll never forget the beautiful jigsaw puzzles she made and framed of Elvis (Nancy’s heart throb) and Marilyn Monroe and other greats that hung all around the “pool room” where I spent most of my time. We all had some fantastic times together, and Frankie never held it against me that I’m American. I am 100% convinced that there is no ending to our consciousness when our bodies pass, and I’m sure Frankie will be sitting on our shoulders forever, rooting us on to find peace and comfort in the knowledge that she’s surrounded by pure, positive energy and joy. I know we’ll meet again. Meanwhile, we’ll miss all the wonderful things about her that we all wish we had more of in ourselves. And if we close our eyes, we’ll see her beaming smile. Sending my huge hugs and love to Nancy and Queenie and the whole family.

My condolences to the Notarianni family.
She will be greatly missed. We were the “Thelma and Louise” of thrifting. We shared secrets, laughs, and love. She will always be a big part of my family. The most beautiful and selfless person. She wasn’t my sister by blood but definitely my sister by choice. Frankie touched all of our hearts through the way she loved. She would do anything for the people she cared about. She was the strongest person I know. Forever love sis xoxo.
