Her faith in the Lord was steadfast. Frances knew the good news and wanted to share it with everyone. She was devoted to the Blessed Mother; not only did Frances say the Rosary, but she made them also. She loved to cook; Pork Chops and Sauerkraut, Liver and Onions, and Galumpkis. She spent much of her time doing work for others: Frances volunteered at nursing homes and cared for the elderly in their homes.
She met the late Joseph through a friend. Before meeting in person, they exchanged letters while he was in the military. It lead to their nuptials.
She is survived by her daughters, Gloria, Pam (Scott), Joann (Ray), Fran (Brian), and Ann (John); her grandchildren, Jenn, Kelley, Jesse, Laura, Maria, Ray J., Brian, Aubrie, Michelle, Megan, Tamara, John, and Joe; and her great-grandchildren, Owen, Kylie, Nora, Ayla, Mya, Olivia, Mason, Aiden, Greyson, June, Liam, and Addelaide. She was preceded in death by her son, Joey; and son-in-law, Tom. She also is survived by her friend, Dona, who was more like a daughter.
Come celebrate 81 blessed years with Mass of Christian Burial 10:30 a.m. Thursday, at Sacred Heart Church, Mount Holly. Interment will be in St. Peter’s Cemetery, Riverside.
