Cause of Francine Valli Death
Francine Valli was a drug addict and an alcoholic person. Her parents decided to cure this problem at this age only so that it does not affect her future.
They took a decision to move her for some time to a good rehabilitation centre for treatment. After some months of good treatment, Francine was called back home and this time she was quite better than before. Her addiction to drugs and alcohol has reduced but not ended.
It was 16th August 1980 and all the family members including Francine’s parents and all her siblings were gone out and she was all alone in the house. When the family members went back, they saw the dead body of Francine on the floor.
This has left the whole family in utter shock. Although the internet and media were not so popular at that time, the news of her death spread like fire in the town. And after Francine’s death, all were unable to recover this mishappening for months.
The main cause revealed was a drug overdose and alcohol abuse. The main drug depicted for death was Quaalude’s (hypnotic and sedative drugs). The public was also made to hear that she died due to pneumonia.

Francine’s death wasn’t the only shock the family received that year, like 6 months before her death, her elder sister Celia was killed while escaping from the fire which spread all over the house.
Although, she was the child of Mary Valli before she married to Frankie Valli, and thus Frankie’s stepdaughter, but still this was a huge shock for all the members.
