Frances Mary French of Endicott went home to be with her Lord on August 18, 2022, surrounded by her beloved family.
Frances, "Fran," was born on July 23, 1936 to William and Katherine Sheehan.
Fran married her loving husband Larry in 1954 and enjoyed 67 years of marriage. They shared 4 children, Mark, Anthony (Tony), Michael and Lori.
Fran was predeceased by her husband Larry, her parents William and Katherine Sheehan, her brothers- in-law Bob, Willis, Keith and Michael French, brother-in-law Michael Corcoran, mother-in-law Catherine French and father-in-law Leon French.
Fran is survived by her loving family- brother William (Sandra) Sheehan; sons Mark (Debra), Anthony (Renee) and Michael (Lynda) and daughter Lori (Randy); her grandchildren Nicholas (Tanya), Jason (Courtney), Kyle, Brandon (Leah), Leah (Jake), Christopher (Jacqueline), Kelly (Frank), Courtney (Kyle) and Alexis (Mario); her great-grandchildren Raleigh, Rogan, Sylvie, Riley, Emmie and Rowen; her sisters-in-law Gloria Corcoran, Betty (David) Wells, Sharon (Harry) Dodge, Linda (Lee) Osborne, Kathleen French, Dorothy French and Nancy French; and many special nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Fran attended Union Endicott High School. She retired from Maine Endwell School District and spent her time enjoying hobbies such as reading, crocheting, cooking, going for car rides and most importantly, spending time with her family.
Fran was a devoted wife, daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. Her family brought her so much happiness and pride. She could be found at every sporting event, recital, graduation, and important event to show her love and support. She loved to text her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, never missing an opportunity to say, "good morning" or "goodnight" and always telling them how much she loved them. Fran was not only loved by her family, but by the students at Maine Endwell schools who lovingly referred to her has "everyone's grandma."
Fran was a special woman. Her humor, courage, and spunk will be missed by all who knew her.
The family would like to thank the Mueller family and neighbor Chuck Smith for their help and love over the years. The family also extends a special thank you to Jeffery Avery, PA, Dr. Maxian and Dr. Federico for their special care for Fran at the end of her life.
A private service will be held for the family. Fran will be laid to rest in Maine Cemetery.
