  1. Fran will always be remembered for her love and caring ways to everyone. She enjoyed her family and friends and was loving to everyone. We will always remember how creative and talented she was. She worked hard, but always seemed to enjoy it. The sweaters, blankets, shawls, and baby clothes she made were always made to perfection, yet she did it with ease. Her family was definitely the love of her life. Fran will always be remembered for her kind and caring ways. We hope that her family will find comfort in all their good memories. Our deepest sympathy to Fran’s family at this sad time. Love, Stu and Lesley
