As a dedicated, hard working woman she spent most of her career as the Assistant Treasurer for the Township of Fairfield, NJ.

Her love of sports led her to attend her grandchildren’s sporting events through the years and she looked forward to watching her NY Rangers and Yankees. Fran had a passion for the arts, enjoyed classical music, admired nature and was an avid reader. Her depth and breadth of knowledge made her the best trivia partner at family gatherings. She revered the life of all creatures and provided a home to many animals through the years.

Fran was a caring wife to the late Eric Stone. She was a beloved mother to: Susan Uske, Margaret Howell, William P. Ball, Richard Ball and Barbara Bryson.

Billy, Ricky, Susan, Margaret, & Barbara - My sincere condolences to you and your extended families on your loss of Fran. Your Mom was a very sweet, caring, loving woman, who let me sleep over at your house about 100 times when we were kids. She was also a very tolerant and forgiving woman of some of our mischievous childhood antics. She invited me to go on a family vacation to Ortley/Seaside one summer with you guys, which is a great childhood memory of a very fun time for me. I also remember her deep affection for your pets, especially Liebchen and Mr. Stein. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
