Prince Albert of Monaco may be coming to Philadelphia this weekend for the Saturday funeral services of Elizabeth "Lizanne" Kelly LeVine, who died yesterday at age 76.
LeVine, Albert's aunt, was the sister of his late mother, Grace Kelly, the East Falls native actress who went on to become Princess of Monaco, and sister of former City Councilman Jack Kelly (not to be confused with the current Councilman). Lizanne LeVine was the youngest of four siblings.
A nephew of LeVine, John B. Kelly, III, said he hadn't heard if Prince Albert would attend, as we heard earlier today he would, but that it's not impossible, as he is scheduled in Washington D.C. on Monday to serve as keynote speaker at the Antarctic Treaty Summit.
According to her published death notice, relatives and friends are invited to greet the family at St. Bridget Church (3667 Midvale) in East Falls from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. Saturday, followed by a mass of Christian burial at noon. Donations in Lizanne's memory may be made to St. Bridget Memorial Fund or the Religious of the Assumption Convent 1001 S. 47th St. Philadelphia, PA 19143.
