Sending prayers of love and comfort to all of Frans family and friends. I have fond childhood memories of swimming in Frans pool and eating Uncle Joe's popsicles. I didn't see Fran again for over 20 years, but when I found out she knew my neighbors across the street, we started visiting again. I always thought Fran was my Aunt because she was the same age as my Mom Patricia McMahon. But we are cousins. I enjoyed getting to know Fran better as an adult, and came to know her as fun, energetic, kind, and positive. I grew to really love Fran and always welcomed our visits. She was very comforting and helpful to my sister and I after our Mom passed by helping us with our family genealogy. Mom left us with family photos dated back in the late 1800's, early 1900's, and we didn't know who many of our relatives were by looking at the pictures. Fran helped us identify them and told us some good stories!! Fran always spoke of the love she had for her family, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. My heart goes out to you all!!
