FELICE FRANCISCONI, proprietor of the Italian-French bakery in Eureka, is a young man of worth and enterprise
who has built up a creditable business. He was born in the city of Lucca, Italy, April 2, 1878, the son of Giuseppe
Francisconi, a carpenter and builder. Felice attended the public schools until fourteen, when he began learning
the carpenter's trade under his father and continued at it for about eight years. As a result of the glowing reports
which had come regarding California he decided to come to the Pacific coast, thinking he could better his condition.
In January, 1902, he arrived in San Francisco, where for several years he followed his trade, and while living
there, May 9, 1909, he was married to Miss Elide De Llosso, also born in Lucca, Italy. Her father, Giuseppe De
Llosso, came to the United States and settled at St. Paul, Minn., where for several years he was engaged in the
merchandise business, after which he returned to Italy. As a girl Mrs. Francisconi lived in St. Paul, Minn., where
she attended school, but returned to Lucca, Italy, when thirteen years of age. There she completed her education,
later coming to San Francisco with her aunt, and in that city she was married to Mr. Francisconi.
In 1910 Mr. and Mrs. Francisconi came to Eureka and a year later Mr. Francisconi purchased the Italian-French bakery
at No. 732 Second street, where he has built up a large business in his line. Mr. and Mrs. Francisconi have two
children, Olga and Tosca. Fraternally he is a member of the Druids and politically is a Republican.
