November 23, 1926 - November 24, 2021
Clementine Riccobono Slif passed from this world on November 24th, 2021... Just one day past her 95th birthday. Known as Ricky to her friends, Clemie to her family, and as a beloved Mom and Grandma, Clementine was the daughter of Concetta and Antonio Riccobono, both Sicilian immigrants. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, she eventually left her home of forty-nine years to spend the last six years living on Long Island. Clementine was the youngest and last survivor of seven siblings (Mary, John, Louis, Francis, Frances, and Thomas Riccobono). She was the widow of Jack Slif, who passed in 1999. She was predeceased by her niece, Gloria, who passed in 2020. She is survived by her daughter, Amy Slif (Tony Rossi), and her beloved grandson, Christopher Frawley. She will be greatly missed by her nieces and nephews, including Joanne (Salvatore) Baglieri, Christopher (Joyce) Baglieri, Mathew Baglieri, Karen Gorski, Linda (Peter) Ciaccia, Anthony (Elaine) Riccobono, Joan Riccobono, Jim Shearer, Dick Shearer, Patrice (James) Morisco, and many other family members. Everyone enjoyed her company, cooking, crocheting skills, and never-ending humor. Clementine’s friends and family are familiar with her elder wisdom and childish wonder. She had no problem speaking her mind, never hesitating to exclaim “that’s ridiculous!” or “who ever heard of such a thing?” Loyal to her close friends and family, Clementine had a style all her own as well as true panache. She was one of a kind, the last of her generation, and will be missed dearly by all who were fortunate enough to know her. Clementine would want to be celebrated through memories and tales of her style and creativity. In following her wishes, she has been cremated, and a funeral mass will be held in Brooklyn on January 8, 2022. Further information is available via family members. Since Clementine was an avid reader, a fitting tribute would be a donation to your local library in her name. A private Cremation was handled by the A.L. Jacobsen Funeral Home.
