Florence A. (Schavone) Neagle

May 24, 2018

Florence Antoinette Schavone Neagle-Loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother passed away peacefully after 95 years of life amid songs and laughter surrounded by her eight children on May 24 at 7:15 pm.  She leaves a rich trove of memories of encouragement, lessons of perseverance, and a conviction that God and family are all you  need to be happy in life --that and an occasional homemade chocolate cake.  Cookie, as she was fondly called by many, will forever be remembered by her children and their spouses, grandchildren and great grandchildren as a fiercely independent, importantly principled, and sacrificially loving matriarch of the family.  Her legacy continues. She is survived by her children Suzanne (Peter ) Muffitt, Cindy  (John) Neberz, Bob (Marilyn )Neagle, Mary  (Jim) Sardina , Mike (Kathy) Neagle, Peter  (Ainslie) Neagle, Denise  (John) Favia, Louise  (John) Williams; and a long list of loving grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday May 29th at  10:30 a.m. at St. Clement Church.  Interment Evergreen Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Wounded Warrior project, in honor of Florence's concern for our wounded veterans.  Info 773-588-5850
