Tribute & Message From The Family


Fran shone with a beauty that radiated from within. She blessed us with her humanity and embraced so many of us with her unconditional love. Fran found the best in everyone; she drew it out of us. Whatever she had, she shared with uncommon generosity and grace.

Fran saw the positive in every situation, she referred to herself as an eternal optimist, which couldn't be truer. She was quick with a smile and forever kindhearted. Fran was always the first to offer support and help in any way she could to her friends, family and colleagues.

Fran was a brilliant writer. She had the courage to pursue her passion and never gave up. Mother Night may have been her crowning achievement, though there were so many wonderful plays that she wrote, including her 2019 prize winning short play, Train Ride.

Fran loved to travel and see the world….

…. and now she is off on her great adventure.
