I truly loved your mom. What a great lady. She always had open arms and hugs for me. She always let me stay so I would have a safe place to sleep and not once did she ever ask me to leave or go home. I enjoyed her company as a adult, Just as much as I did as a child. We lost a great mom but she will live on within all of us. God truly gained a great angel. With all my love Sherry Vosika

Frances was my grandmother and the best great grandmother to my boys! She was sweet, beautiful, funny, Kind, loving, and would make friends with anyone she met! I will never forget the fresh taste of coca cola from a can and her amazing egg and mustard sandwiches! I miss you more then anyone can imagine! Rest in Heaven! I love you to the moon and back! ❤️
