    Fran was a fantastic neighbor and friend. The neighborhood has lost a wonderful friend but gained an amazing guardian angel. Rest in peace, Fran. You will be missed forever.

    Frances, John, Cheryl, Catherine, Susan and Sr. Eleanor,

    I just learned of Frannie’s passing and wanted to send my deepest sympathy. I remember her great warmth and her laughter at family gatherings and always enjoyed our chats. My Dad, Donald, so enjoyed his Smith cousins too. May happy memories sustain you at this sad time.

    Thinking of you all,
    Donna Ferullo
