Frances Delsi LaPaglia, 70, of Coolidge, passed away peacefully at home on November 5, 2023. Born on October 4, 1953, in Coolidge to Joe Sr. and Concepcion Delsi, Frances was a remarkable individual who touched the lives of many with her boundless empathy.
Frances had a deep love for children, although she was unable to have any of her own. She became a beloved babysitter for numerous families, caring for their children as if they were her own. Her kindness and nurturing nature left an everlasting impact on those fortunate enough to have crossed paths with her.
A delightful sense of humor accompanied Frances wherever she went. She found solace in watching movies and sharing laughter with loved ones. An outgoing and sociable soul, she couldn't help but engage with every person she encountered during her daily outings; it seemed as though she knew everyone.
Beyond her warmheartedness, Frances possessed great intellect. Her curiosity fueled a lifelong passion for learning and expanding her knowledge.
Frances is survived by her loving husband, Patrick LaPaglia, along with her siblings Ophelia D. Costales, Richard S. Delsi, Carlos S. Delsi, Joe S. Delsi Jr., and Terri S. Delsi. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews who will forever cherish their memories of their beloved aunt.
She was preceded in death by her parents, as well as her grandparents, brother Robert S. Delsi, and sister Lupe S. Delsi.
Frances's genuine compassion and unwavering presence will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Her legacy of love and understanding will continue to inspire us as we carry forward the values she held dear.
