Fran (and Paul) - Mar 27, 2020
I am so sorry for your loss. Fran was a faithful choir member, helpful volunteer, and dedicated parishioner of St. Susanna for many years. I have known Fran for over 20 years through the church choir. She was an excellent musician, and her voice will be missed. Fran and I have spent a lot to time together in the past year, riding in the car to choir practice and Sunday Mass. I am glad I was able to visit her this winter during her time at Cedar Village. We had time together to talk and pray. She will be missed.

Musica Sacra would like to send our sympathies to you in this sad time. Fran was the consummate singer, she not only sang with St. Susanna and Musica Sacra, but also with the October Festival chorus every year. She was devoted to her family and to music. We are the poorer for her departing not only for that love of music but also for her way of helping when needed and her ready sense humor. She will be sadly missed by all of us. Ella Jean Davis, Trustee Musica Sacra
