Dina Tressa Franzino


Dina Tressa Franzino, age 62, of Jacksonville, Florida, peacefully departed this life on Friday, November 11th, 2022, after a courageous battle with lung cancer.

Dina worked as a hairdresser for more than forty years in the Beaches & Mandarin area and was cherished by her clientele, many of whom she knew for the entirety of her career. Dina loved to travel, go deep-sea fishing, and spend time with family and friends. She was also an avid and valued member of a number of pool leagues she played in, while winning many tournaments in Jacksonville and in Las Vegas.

As a result of her generous spirit and fun personality, Dina was loved by all. She was spontaneous and bold, and brought others together, while never meeting a stranger. She was also fiercely compassionate about the animals in her care and often fostered pets in need.

Dina was preceded in death by her mother, Patricia “Toni” Harper. She is survived by her beloved father, Peter Franzino (wife, Cheryl); her brother Gino Cannon (wife, Jenny); three nieces, Karigan, Emily, and Jenna-Faith; her nephew, Chad; and several close friends who were fondly also known as her Sisters!

Her beautiful life will forever be cherished by her family and friends.
