Fran lived a life rich in love and faith. Born with a heart full of compassion and a spirit of adventure, she embraced every moment. Fran's journey took her across cities and continents, each chapter filled with love and purpose. From her early days in Richmond, VA, to Raleigh, NC, to Katonah, NY, to Tokyo, Japan, to Milton, FL, Fort Pierce, FL, and finally settling in Port St. Lucie, FL, Fran touched countless lives with her warmth and kindness.

Professionally, Fran pursued her dream of becoming a nurse, graduating from Westchester Community College in 1985 where she was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society. She was a dedicated Registered Nurse (R.N.), pouring her heart into caring for others. Whether it was advocating for her patients or lending a comforting hand, Fran's compassion knew no bounds. She served in various healthcare facilities, including Julia L. Butterfield Memorial Hospital in Cold Springs, NY, Richmond Memorial Hospital in Mechanicsville, VA, Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, FL, and other medical centers in Florida.

Beyond her career, Fran found joy in being active and involved. She took many trips to visit family and help care for her grandbabies. And she was ever ready to lend a hand, engage in conversation, or embark on adventures like gardening, bike rides. and paddleboarding. With her characteristic spirit of determination, she tackled many a challenge. Her zest for life was infectious, and she cherished every moment. 

Family was at the heart of Fran's world. She loved her husband, Mike, and his family. She shared a special bond with her brother Don. She loved her children and she treasured every moment with her grandchildren, whose very existence brought immense joy to her life.
