Frances has been a member of St Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church most of her life and has been a member of their choir and Altar Rosary Society. She has also been a member of SNPJ.
Frances was very hard working and worked many jobs but was most proud of being an owner/operator of her bar. Frances loved bowling, baking and dancing especially to polkas and was a avid Guardians/Indians fan with her favorite player being Omar Vizquel.
She will be remembered as a feisty, friendly, social and loving person. She always had a strong opinion, and you always knew what was on her mind. Frances was funny and very witty. Her family said she was “quite a hoot”. She will be remembered most as a devoted mother and grandmother who will be greatly missed by her family and friends

God bless my much loved Auntie Fanny. She was kind, loving, funny, spunky and at times (mostly) unfiltered. She was my Aunt, Godmother and Mom when my parents weren’t near by. She will be missed by many but we each have a part of her in us.
My sympathy to my Aunt Fanny family. God gave her a long happy life with a loving family. And now her angel wings as she reunites with those who have gone before her. She will be missed and forever in our hearts.
Our hearts are heavy. Please know that we are thinking of your family, remembering Fanny and celebrating her life. We enjoyed spending time with Fanny and the family on our visits to Ohio. She was so fun to be around. Sending our condolences.
Love from your family in Toronto.
Monica Zupancic (Allen’s 2nd cousin), and daughters Barb Shearer and Susan Ellinas. xo

I remember Frances so very well! My dad, Charlie, worked part time in their bar, Jermac’s in Cleveland on St. Clair and 147th. I would go in there with my dad and bowl or play the pinball machines. Frances, Frank, Olga and Tony were such good, kind people. I will tell my 95 yr. old mom about her passing. We were just talking about the bar the other day! Sending sympathy to the family.
Donna spoke of her often at work with definitely the “hoot” of the situation …so much LOL as she told the story..we all loved Mom..she will remain forever in your hearts and those of us in sharing.
