I idolized Aunt Fran since I was a little girl. She was such a sweet, loving person. We always had fun at the shore. She won Scrabble every time we played. I will miss her so much. My condolences to Joseph, Jeffery, Jack, and Jackie. Love you all.

Your mom and dad were incredibly wonderful parents and grandparents. Your mom was also a kind, encouraging sister. I looked up to her and admired her warm gentle personality. She always saw the good in people and the bright side of life. Your dad was also exceptional and I'll never forget how patiently and lovingly he cared for your mom. Words cannot express our sorrow. We will miss them so much. We were all blessed to have them in our lives and I thank God for the many special memories. Our love and prayers.

Wildwood summers will not be the same without my visits to Aunt Fran and Uncle Joe’s condo. I have countless fond memories of playing cards with Aunt Fran growing up and Uncle Joe’s crab dinners. In recent years seeing the love they felt for my children, just as they had for me was such a special gift for me. Aunt Fran and Uncle Joe, you are loved. You will be missed!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Everything that is written about Fran in her obituary is true. She was just a kind soul, never bothered anyone and always had a smile. We got to see her in Wildwood for the past few summers. She was a joy to be around. We are so sorry for the family and please accept our sympathies. May she rest in peace with no pain or suffering in the arms of God. Love Marty and Toni Taccetta.

Fran will always hold a special place in our hearts... "Aunt Fran" was extended family to all the Pedra's -always ready to feed anyone who entered her home, chat, play games or just give us hugs. We counted on seeing her at the shore. She was usually the first person we greeted and the last person we would kiss goodbye. We pray for God's grace to bless her. We will remember her with joy and love. Chris, Dennis, David, Nicole and Danielle Pedra

Fran was a treasure during our young family’s time at the beach. She would tease that we brought a new baby every summer. And every summer Fran would kiss our babies and make them feel adored. We will remember her fondly.
