    What a beautiful tribute to a lovely lady! I met Frances late in her life. Her loving daughters Carolyn and Patricia introduced me and I delighted in seeing photos of their times together in the last few years. Frances always seemed up for an adventure. I know that she will be greatly missed.

  • Loretta Shindler says:

    She had such a fierce spirit and a dry humor that I loved. Meeting and spending time with her filled a void in my life-interesting how people come along when you need their particular energy. I know how much she wanted to go home-rest in peace Frances. Love and thoughts to Carolyn and Tricia.

    My Aunt, the wife and long time companion of my Uncle Mike, will be missed and thought of for each morning that I rise. I can only speak for the family I remember, I hope that the DiPalma family, et al, will keep blessed and happy memories of these wonderful people…GOD BLESS.

    Sorry for your loss.

    It’s been years since we had all been together as a family. I remember the last time we all saw each other was back in 1997 at mom and dad’s anniv. party in FL. I had lost track of everyone and am ashamed of that, but hearing the news of your mom,s passing brought back a flood of memories. So sorry for your loss. She’s with your dad and the angels in heaven, now. May her soul rest in peace
