GULF STREAM — Eileen Simons Giacalone, a longtime resident of Philadelphia, Miami and Boca Raton, died July 26. She was 84.
The beloved wife, mother and grandmother enjoyed putting a smile on everyone else’s face and was always upbeat. She was not shy to tell anyone how much she loved her family.
A former model and business owner (The Second Chance), she enjoyed a second career as an aesthetician and was the owner of many fashionable hats.
Mrs. Giacalone was a great host for parties and was always happy to volunteer when needed. Another great joy for her were her grandchildren, who will always remember her fondly.
She is survived by her husband, Frank Giacalone Jr., and son, Barry L. Simons (Amy, grandchildren Chloe and Dani); daughter, Susan E. Wisely (Scott); brother-in-law Charles Simons (Beth, nephews Michael and David); and brother-in-law Arthur Simons (Jessie and niece Jennifer). She was predeceased by her husband, Alan Simons, parents, Frank and Edith Summers, and brother, Frank Summers.
Friends may make memorial contributions in Mrs. Giacalone’s name to a charity of their choice.
