JoAnn DiFrancisco

JoAnn DiFrancisco of Richmond Heights, OH passed away peacefully on June 18, 2023 surrounded by her family, as a result of a long illness. She was 79 years old, a proud wife, mother and grandmother. Her caring and nurturing personality was loved by all who knew her. JoAnn had a knack for helping others, which drew her to study nursing after high school, ultimately spending her career working for doctors as a medical secretary, in addition to running her own medical billing business for several years.  She always placed the well-being of others in front of her own, and caring for others is what made her happy.
She is survived by her husband, John R. DiFrancisco, her three children:  Susan (Dave) Futey, Stacey Lora, John A. DiFrancisco; her three grandchildren: Sarah Lora, Mary Futey, Evan Futey; and many other friends and extended family.
Plans for a celebration of life ceremony will be shared in the future.
