Louise Alessi, a Grand Island resident for the last 36 years, passed away on Nov. 27, 2018, at the age of 80.
She was the beloved wife for 63 amazing years to Leonard Alessi with their two daughters, Lynn and Lisa; devoted grandmother to Alyssa, Vincent, Alysse and Alec; loving sister to Ann D. (the late William) Bishara; aunt to William, Michael (Jennifer) and David (Susan) Bishara; and special friend to Linda (Joseph) D'Antuono, Linda Tomkiel, Noreen Panzarella and Jackie Martin. She was the daughter of the late Joseph and Bella Medzadourian.
She lived a full life surrounded with love, never a dull moment, sharing all the laughter and joy. She was always willing to listen to your problems while enjoying a cup of coffee with you. Formerly from Niagara Falls, she owned and operated the following restaurants: Lenardo's in Niagara Falls, Main Street Ice Cream and Lu Lu's at the Summit Park Mall, and Town Café on Grand Island, each one being her pleasure to serve.
As per Louise's wishes, there will be no funeral service. A celebration of life for friends and family will be from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 29, at the Town Café on Grand Island.
