  1. I am the little girl that lived next door 25 yrs ago! I have some very fond memories of Mrs. Cicconetti. I remember sneaking away from my house and going over to visit her when I was maybe 3 or 4. I gave my mom a heart attack but I got spoiled with cookies and got to play with the doll house. She will always hold a special place in my heart and your family is in my thoughts and prayers!

  2. Your mom was such a wonderful neighbor when we lived next door to her on Walnut Street. She was always so fond of my daughter, making her cupcakes, cookies and basically “spoiling her”. Ashley was always at “Ah” over your mom’s dolls and dollhouse, I would tell her she wasn’t to touch them, but your mom would always say “she isn’t going to hurt them”. I recently learned that she lived close to my mom and wanted to stop in and see her, but unfortunately I didn’t get there soon enough! Condolences and prayers to your family, she will be missed!

  3. She will be missed. I have great memories of Aunt Frances. Just knowing she is with Uncle Paul again makes my heart feel good. Rest In Peace, Aunt Frances. Sorry for your loss, Lori, Denny, and Ray! Love you, Kathy

  4. Very sorry to see the passing of frances always thought a lot for her my and my family sympathy to hr fmily. May she Rest In Peace.

  5. Oh, the memories growing up across the street!
    Lori, Denny, and Ray, you have my deepest sympathy.

  6. Ray is the only member of the family that we knew well, but we extend our condolences to the entire family. Ray— we will be in touch with you in the days ahead. What a grand old age your mother reached. We give thanks that she lived so long, and we give thanks that you took good care of her in her later years.

    Blessings to you and all, Ed and Carol Eberhart

  7. She was one of the sweetest ladies I ever met. Actually I did not meet her my 7 year old daughter Gabrielle did. We lived on Grant St and she was friend with Ben and Doris Massaro and she met Mrs. Cicconetti through Doris. She would always go around the neighborhood and visit the elderly. She used to spend a lot of time at her house and would tell about her dolls and the clothes she made. she taught her to sew and crochet.. You are blessed to be her family. I wish there were more of her in this world I am so sorry for your loss . It takes a community to raise a child and she was my community
