    My dear sister Francine, the joy you shared with your siblings i can treasure in my heart to affirm Gods love for me. Your love for others gleamed with a brightness that was felt to help in moving us forward in life. You endured the race receiving scars along the way and not giving up to reach the finish line. Now your race is done, you no longer carry those scars, for the scars are in the hands that hold you now.

    I have one memory of aunt Fran. I believe it was at a life celebration for Bonnie richters mother that had passed away. I can’t remember how old I was, I must have been 15 or 16 at the time. And I remember chatting with aunt Fran and I asked her “is your name short for Francine or Francesca?” And she just smiled and answered “it’s Francine”. That’s the only interaction I can recall with aunt Fran, but I remember her being so sweet and endearing.

    I have only fond memories of my sweet cousin, Fran. We managed to get into good trouble together. The first bone I broke occurred with Fran. We were on our way to paint fences so we could horseback ride.
    On the way, I jumped off the back of the bike just like Fran did. I landed on my chin and left arm and broke it instead.
    Fran “taught” me how to clean poopy diapers back in the days before disposables and she took great delight watching me rinse it. I never stayed over at the Buehner’s house again, lol.
    Rest In Peace my dear cousin.

    Because we were close in age, Fran and I hung out together. Somehow, we always managed to get into (good) trouble together.
    Fran taught me how to rinse a poopy diaper and took great delight in watching me but I never stayed over at the Buehner’s again, lol.
    I broke my first bone with Fran. I jumped off the back of a bike just like Fran did but landed on my chin and broke my arm.
    We nearly “drowned” together in Pineway Trails Lake. We were laughing, crying, and gasping for air, but somehow we made it back to shore.
    Fran loved life. RIP my sweet cousin.

    Francine my loving sister and healer. I remember her alway taking in strays growing up and nursing them. What a gift she was in helping mom, dad and other family when critical issues arose. I now find myself needing to change my health care directive…she was my designee….she knew how to handle the caretakers, having been one herself. Rest in peace sister for a job well done. Love Eddie.

    I have a few early memories of Fran when she practiced at first aid while my mother was away. The first one, she cleaned up and bandage a cut I got on my chin from my dad’s razor at age 4. The second time my mother was in the hospital giving birth, I had stepped on a nail and Fran helped my Aunt Mary bandage my foot on the dining room table. When I was going to CSU, studying psychology and gerontology, she helped me get a job as a nursing assistant at Mount Alverna. She great babysitter to my sons. Fran., thank you for all the gifts you shared, I will truly miss you. God bless you!

    I am Honored to have Responded to Fran’s Plea for Help on the early morning of the Dec 13th getting her to the Hospital as well of taking her grandkids to school in Lakewood. Vincent & I were the last to see her, Fran., your Departure on Christmas Morning had to be arranged with the Almighty to bring all the family members together during these troubling times, Marita & I will always remember your Birthday on December 20th in which we took our Wedding Vows, Thanks Sis for the Memories!

    We were neighbors for a long time. Shared lots of interesting nights on our street. Looked out for me and my kids all the time, through so much. You were family. One of the saddest days for me is when we moved, because I knew I would never have the kind of nights we had ever again. My heart is broken that you’re gone, it’s surreal. I will forever be grateful for all you did, and forever thankful for your friendship. You taught me so much. And I’ll look for you in all things you told me about.
    Rest easy my dear friend, until we meet again..

    I am extremely saddened by the loss of Fran. I worked with her for several years at Taft. What an amazing Lady! I enjoyed our early mornings at the office. She will be missed greatly. God Bless You, Fran.

    We had fun together, drank shots at all wedding receptions, danced together, made fun of each other and now Aunt Catherine has the pleasure of your company. I will miss you so much and will always love you my funny little cousin. You are now in God’s Hands. Rita
