Frances teamed up with her husband Dr. Joe for many years as a Veterinary Assistant at his practice, Adams Area Animal Clinic. Fran had also worked as a bank teller at Broadway Bank and in ticket sales at the Belasco Theatre.
She attended St. John's elementary school. Frances was a proud 1954 graduate of Notre Dame High School and still enjoyed rolling out the barrel with her pals Suzie Longo and Carol Clow. She also enjoyed attending her 60th class reunion.
A longtime member of St. Peter Catholic Church, Frances participated in the Adoration Chapel since its inception. As part of the bereavement committee she enjoyed preparing casserole dishes.

Fran was also a member of Sheridan Swim Club and was a Booster Parent for the Swim Team. She enjoyed boating and water-skiing. Fran loved playing tennis. For many years both she and Dr. Joe were members of both the Quincy Racquet Club and the Elks Club.
Fran was very devoted to her family, and made sure that her children had a joyful childhood and attended college. She often chauffeured cheerleaders to practices and games, swimmers to swim meets and athletes to their events. She loved taking care of her grandchildren and attending their sporting and musical performances. She volunteered at Madison School helping children improve their reading.
A skilled seamstress, she won the Crepe Paper Ball Gown Contest that was once a part of the Dogwood Parade Festival. She had an innate sense of interior design and was often called upon by friends to help them with her style advice. Fran enjoyed adventuresome trips to the Pacific North West to visit their Sammamish, WA grandchildren.

Please accept our condolences on the passing of Fran. It was always a pleasure visiting with her on the tennis court, at St. Peter and at Arbors. Fran was a true Christian lady with a ready smile and kind words.

We regret not being present at Fran’s services since we are visiting our daughter in New Hampshire.

May God bless all of you in your loss.
