Francine Galdi Death, Obituary – Francine Galdi passed away on January 17, 2023, in the privacy and comfort of her own home at the age of 62. At the time of her passing, her husband Bob was by her side. Francine was brought into the world by her parents, Joseph Leonard Cranney and Marilyn Ilena (Staub) Cranney, on February 2, 1960, in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in the United States of America. She was the fourth of a total of six children in the family. She relocated to Bucks County, Pennsylvania, with the rest of her family when she was three years old.
Her parents and the rest of her family had previously lived there. The year 1978 was the one in which she graduated from Archbishop Wood Catholic High School and obtained her diploma. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Delaware Valley College, where she also made the acquaintance of Robert, the man who would eventually become her husband. After getting married on the 19th of December in 1981, the couple promptly uprooted their lives and went to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
The first five years of their marriage were spent preparing for the arrival of their two children, Eric Michael and Sarah Anne. This gift of motherhood was given to them by God. The family uprooted their lives and moved to a dairy farm on the outskirts of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, in the month of March 1991. She managed the farm’s dairy operation in addition to her other responsibilities, which included caring for her children and working outside the home. From 1992 until 2001, she worked as an accountant for Alto Dairy Cooperative.
From 2001 until 2013, she worked as an accountant for Park Cheese. From 2013 to 2017, she worked as an accountant for both Dairy.com and the National Farmers Organization. (from 2017 to the time of her passing) She was a dedicated volunteer throughout her whole life, lending her services to a wide range of causes and organizations.
In addition to her leadership duties in 4-H and Fond du Lac County Junior Holstein, she was a member of the Church Council for a number of years during her time at this church. Francine was happiest when she was in the kitchen, especially when she was baking. In recent years, she and her husband have developed a strong fondness for spending their vacations on the East Coast.
