Alice L DeSanti

May 31, 1939 — December 22, 2023


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alice Lucy De Santi on December 22, 2023.  Alice was surrounded by the love of her family following a lengthy time of multiple health conditions.  After being diagnosed a terminal illness that was supposed to give her 6 months of life, ultimately lasted 6 years along with severe pain and suffering.
Alice was born on May 31, 1939 in Manhattan, New York.  She spent several years in foster care until she was 5 years old and was raised by Ercolina Miranda from New Rochelle, New York.  Alice was a daughter, sibling, and a loved wife for 33 years until she became a widow.  She was a devoted mother of 7 children Frank, Anthony, Rosemarie, Michael, Louis, Robert, and Alice Ann.   Alice was a grandmother of 13 children and great grandmother of 8. 
Alice and her husband Anthony De Santi moved to Florida in 1974 and lived in Plantation to raise their family.  
Alice worked several jobs over the years at Publix as a Bakery Manager, American Express, Costco demo server and Caretaker for children who became a part of our family and Travel & Transportation which was a family business called Broward & Limousine Airport service.
Alice was known for her special Italian dishes and many incredible desserts which brought many gatherings even when it wasn't a holiday it felt like it was.
No matter where she went she offered her love and compassion to all.  She also lived a life full of faith in Jesus which got her through the most difficult times...  One of her favorite things was dancing and I know she is doing just that in Heaven...
