Virginia M. Franczkowski, 93, passed away Monday morning, November 1, 2021 at Shepherd of the Valley.

Mrs. Franczkowski was born August 10, 1928 in Cleveland, OH, a daughter of Peter and Mary Gorski Constantinovich.

Raised in Youngstown, Virginia was a graduate of Wilson High School, Class of 1946. Virginia worked at General Electric, 20th Century Restaurant on Belmont Avenue and Southpark Restaurant on Market Street.

An active member of Saint Luke Roman Catholic Church, Virginia served on the Ladies Guild and volunteered her time housekeeping on Monday after weekend services. A gifted baker, Virginia spent much of her time baking for family, friends, and parishioners who regularly took pleasure in her special treats while visiting in the Martha and Mary Room at St. Luke's. After her husband passed away at Hospice of the Valley Hospice House, Virginia generously gifted bake goods daily to the kitchen of Hospice House for family and staff to take comfort in and enjoy.Virginia was always willing to help those in need.

Virginia's greatest love was her family. She cherished her time with her husband and children, and later, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She has a wonderful sense of humor and was affectionately nicknamed, Spitfire, Flash (for her love of sequins) and MeMe (to her grandkids.)
