Janice L. Fracassini

Janice L. Fracassini, age 90, of Fairfield, beloved wife of the late Philip P. Fracassini, passed away peacefully in her home, Tuesday, November 26, 2019. Born in Bridgeport, the daughter of the late Mildred Moore, she had been a Fairfield resident for most of her life. A graduate of Roger Ludlowe High School, her first career was as a fashion buyer for the Virginia Shop in Bridgeport. After raising her four beloved children, Jan began a very successful 45 year career in real estate. She worked for Richter Real Estate and then Coldwell Banker in Fairfield and was a member of the National Association of Realtors, CT Association of Realtors and the Fairfield Board of Realtors. She was honored by her peers as the recipient of the Yvette McDonald Award as Realtor of the Year and was the recipient of numerous Centurion, Masters, and Quality Service Awards. Jan was a long-time parishioner of St. Pius X Church and for years, was a member of the Fairfield Prep Bellarmine Guild where she was active in the annual auction. In addition to her love for real estate, she enjoyed the beach, dark chocolate, playing bridge with her friends, fashion and shopping, but above all, delighted in time spent with her family and friends. Survivors include her four loving children, Philip Fracassini and his wife, Karen, of Midland Park, NJ, Mary Brenneman and her husband, Andrew, of Leesburg, VA, Amy Leslie and her husband, John, of Hingham, MA and Paul Fracassini of Stamford, CT; four cherished grandchildren, Nicole and Trey Fracassini and Andrew and Hannah Brenneman; a sister, Marjorie Foran of Tequesta, FL, and several beloved nieces, nephews and cousins who will miss her dearly. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by the Rev. Samuel Kachuba on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Thomas Aquinas Church, 1719 Post Road, Fairfield. Interment will follow in Oak Lawn Cemetery. Friends may call Friday from 3-7 p.m. in the Spear-Miller Funeral Home, 39 South Benson Road, Fairfield.

  1. My favorite aunt. You were stylish and dignified with a great sense of fun. A trip to your home was always the best of times. What a great family to be part of. May you enjoy eternity with Phillip. Love you, Johnny

  2. Jan was one of my mother’s (Virginia Richter) dearest friends. They shared many a laugh at Richter Real Estate. She also kept in close touch with my mother when she got sick. She was also very helpful with all of our families real estate transactions. Rest in eternal peace Jan.

  3. We are so sorry to hear about the loss of Jan. Jan and Phil were very dear friends of our parents for many years. She played in the same neighborhood Bridge Group with our mother, Joan. My parents always raved about her their annual New Year’s Eve party with all their friends. She also helped my sister and I buy our first home. Jan was a very kind and sweet person especially when we recently lost both of our parents. May she rest in peace.

    • I was so sorry to learn of the passing of Mrs. Fraccasini. She was a dear friend to my mom and both Jan and Phil were great friends of my mom and dad, Tom and Joan Melita. Jan was a member of the Assumption Church Mothers’ Circle and my mom and a number of friends enjoyed each other’s friendship very much. I will always be grateful to Jan who throughout my mother’s illness, stopped by the house almost every day to cheer my mom and support our family. She was a truly good person, living acts of charity and kindness daily. My condolences to the family.
