Alfia M. Sassetti (nee Giannasi), 91, of River Forest, died on Jan. 7, 2021. Born on May 5, 1929, she had an infinitely generous and loving heart, as evidenced by her countless contributions to her parish, social services and multiple charitable organizations.

(Karen), Rita Farina, Donna (Jose) deAvila, Marian (Robert Kent Jr.) and Francis (Tracy); daughter of the late Fortunato and Rosa (nee Valiensi); sister of the late Alfio and the late Louis (Carol); grandmother of 14 and great-grandmother of 13. 

A funeral Mass and celebration of Alfia’s life will be held at such time as current health and safety challenges have abated and make gathering possible.
