Frances loved to spend time with her friends and family at holiday gatherings and always attended important family events and celebrations. She was a devoted mother and grandmother and often enjoyed taking her grandkids out on day trips to the bird zoo or the planetarium. She channeled her faith and spirituality through Sahaja Yoga, ultimately making many lasting, life long friendships through her participation in many groups throughout the years. She was loving, caring and often funny, even when she didn’t mean to be. A great soul, she will be missed dearly by friends, family and all that knew her.

A funeral mass will be held in the spring. An announcement will be made and posted with more details.
