Francine M. Marvill

March 5, 1920 - July 19, 2014


Francine Marvill, living at Sunrise of North Hills in Raleigh, N.C, died on Saturday, July 19, from complications of the heart at 94 years old. She was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and will be missed tremendously.

Francine was the daughter of John and Jennie Piantieri, born on March 5, 1920, in Philadelphia, PA. She graduated from Germantown High School, performed in community theater after high school, then married the man of her dreams, Hank Marvill, at age 24. They were married for 62 years until Hank passed away in 2008. Francine worked for Philco and Motorola for most of her career, and worked her way up to Executive Secretary. She moved from Hatboro, PA, to Florida with Philco, then moved to the North Carolina coast after retirement to be closer to her son and family, with a final move to Raleigh.

She is survived by her son, John Marvill, and his wife, Diane Figueroa; her three grandchildren, Richard Marvill, Kristin Dudley, and Cate Marvill; her six sweet great grandchildren; Jillian, Jack, Caroline, Olive, Eden and Isla; and her two step-grandchildren, Stephanie and Christopher George.

The Memorial Service will take place at 3:00 pm, Saturday July 26, in St. Mary's Chapel on the campus of St. Francis of Assisi Church, 11401 Leesville Road in Raleigh, followed by a reception.
