Obituary for Francesca "Frances" Bulisco

Francesca "Frances" Bulisco
Francesca (Frances) Bulisco, 74 of New Castle passed away the morning of June 10, 2017 at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital.

Born on November 25, 1942 in Baia e Latina, Italy, Frances was the daughter of the late Carmen and Annina Ginocchi Laurenza. Surviving at home is her loving and devoted husband of over fifty two years, Cosimo Bulisco, Jr. whom she married on July 11, 1964.

Frances was a member of St. Vitus Church.

Born in Italy, Frances came to the United States at the age of 19. She and her husband were the owners and operators of Cosimo and Frances Bulisco Catering and Restaurant. In her earlier years she had worked for Ralph’s Supermarket and Vitale Fireworks.

Frances enjoyed gardening, knitting, cooking and tending to her birdhouses. Frances never forgot her Italian heritage, as she enjoyed listening to Italian music and cooking Sunday dinners surrounded by her family. Frances was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who cherished the times she spent surrounded by her family, especially her grandchildren. Above all else, Frances’s life revolved around her husband, children and grandchildren who she truly loved and nurtured.

In addition to her husband, Cosimo, Frances is survived by her two children, Thomas Bulisco and his wife Vicki, Tammy Casalandra and her husband Robert Todd, both of New Castle; her brother, Alessandro Laurenza of Schellsburg, PA; four grandchildren, Luann Bulisco-Burdick and her husband Mark, Marco Bulisco and his companion Angela Masters, Nina Casalandra, Ella Casalandra and her one great-grandchild, Cosimo Burdick.

She is preceded in death by her parents, five brothers, Luca, Marco, Tomasso, Giovanni, Antonio Laurenza; her sister and brother-in-law, Maria and Pasquale Pascarella and her beloved companion and pet dog, Cassie.

Visitation is Tuesday from 2:00PM to 4:00PM and 7:00PM to 9:00PM at the Ed and Don DeCarbo Funeral Home and Crematory 941 S. Mill St.

A procession will leave the funeral home at 9:30AM on Wednesday for St. Vitus Church where a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00AM officiated by Rev. Father Frank Almade, pastor. Entombment will take place at Parkside Cemetery and Mausoleum.
