ALESCI, LORINE MANISCALCO loving mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt died peacefully surrounded by her family on Monday, September 19th. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Alesci: her parents, Sam and Josephine Maniscalco; her sister, Josephine Passantino; and her brothers, Paul Maniscalco and Sam Maniscalco, Jr. She is survived by her daughter, Frances Jo Kulovitz (Patrick); grandchildren, Theresa Davis (Jeremy), Joseph Kulovitz (Miko), and Thomas Kulovitz; sister, Susie Carpenter; and brothers, Lee Maniscalco (Anna Rose) and Charlie Maniscalco (Dorothy). Lorine was the oldest of seven children and attended St. Paul's Catholic School. She then assisted her mother in the family's grocery store (Maniscalco Market) due to her mother's health issues. She was a nurturing presence in her brother's and sister's upbringing. She married Joseph Alesci on September 22, 1954, and they were married for 49 years until his death in 2004. They had one child, Frances Jo, born in 1955. From 1958 until 1973, she and her husband opened and operated J & L Market (2800 6th Ave South). She ran the store daily until Joe was able to help in the evenings and on Saturdays after his full time job as a food broker was done. After retiring from her store she then assisted her mother and father at Maniscalco Market until they retired. She found new employment with Pizitz Department store at Brookwood Mall and continued to work there after it transitioned to McRae's Department Store. She retired to care for her husband, who at this time had many health issues. She nursed him through his long illness and decline until his death. At this time her dementia conditions were becoming apparent. She moved to Rittenhouse Senior Living in September 2010 and remained there until her death. Lorine was a very generous person to all her family, siblings, nieces, nephews, and friends. She was a faith filled person, rosary at hand, ever ready to read her prayer books. People always wanted to be on her prayer list because it seemed that she had an inside track. She worked hard, prayed hard, and certainly loved hard. Her grandchildren were a great source of joy for her. I would like to thank all the staff at Rittenhouse who made her last year so full. Especially Vicky Mullins and nurses, Patricia, Vicky and Pat; Nursing Assistants Peterson, Sheneka, and Ashli; Activity Personnel Lashonta and Rosa and Enviromental Specialists LaShawn and Nickki. May she rest in peace, Amen. Visitation will be on Thursday, September 22 from 5:00-7:00 pm at Ridout's Elmwood Chapel with a Rosary beginning at 7:00 pm. Funeral Mass will be Friday, September 23, at 11:00 am at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church.
