She missed her siblings Patricia Flory, Joe George, Gerry Tissue, and Duane George, and aunts and uncles in California which truly was her REAL home. Frances went back home as often as she could. Mom worked very hard her whole life, and did her best to keep her children (and then grandchildren) on the right path. She enjoyed being there for all family events. Always tried to be there for family and friends. If she had a bad day you wouldn’t know. She would always put on a smile and try to brighten your day. Fran really enjoyed sending cards of love, encouragement and blessings to MANY family members, close friends and acquaintances. The post office and Hallmark cards are going to feel a drop in revenue. She also liked to give and receive hugs. She would say “Hugs are good for both people and there free, why keep them?” A viewing will be held to laugh and remember at Alpine Funeral Home 2300 N.
