Frances LaSpisa Madonia, 95, of Yonkers, NY entered Heaven’s Gate on Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020. Born on December 13, 1924 in the Bronx, NY to her late parents Maria and Tomasso LaSpisa. She was the beloved wife of the late Frank Madonia with whom she married on February 23, 1947 at St. Roch’s church in the Bronx, NY.

Frances’ life was driven by her deep faith and unending love for life. She was devoted to her church, Our Lady of Fatima in Scarsdale, NY, and spent many years volunteering there, counting the collection every Monday and she was the one who started the library at the school when her children were students there.

Frances was a friend to all who met her. She enjoyed bowling and playing cards with her friends. She was most proud of being a mother and excelled at it. Besides her parents and husband, Frances was predeceased by her brothers John & Silvio LaSpisa, son Dennis and daughter Debra. She is survived by daughters Doreen (Miguel), Maria (John), Janet, her “sister” and best friend Antoinette Burns and sister-in-law Pat LaSpisa.

She is being laid to rest at Ferncliff Cemetery, Hartsdale, NY. Any messages and memories to Frances and her family can be left on A mass and memorial event will be held at a later date to celebrate Frances’ life well lived!

Dear Doreen and family. I read in the paper today of your mother's passing. My memories of her are of a strong helping person. I enjoyed many times with her at events at Our Lady of Fatima.She never hesitated to help in any way whenever she was asked. I certainly will remember her and all of you in my prayers.

Mrs Madonia was one of the best!! She would always be there for anyone, sporting her contagious smile. The Madonia home was so welcoming because of her. I remember her sitting in her chair reading every singal article of the newspaper from front to back. I will miss you Frances. May you rest in the arms of the angels. God will carry you home. Donna and family.
