Married in 1944 to Baltazar (Steve) Lopez she spent the remainder of her life in Shafter, with a few relocations during his Army career. She loved her 10 children and was ingeniously resourceful in caring for us. Our family was treated to delicious meals with perfect tortillas, kept warm with beautiful quilts and dressed with newly sewn clothes. Her family meant everything to her, and she meant everything to her family. Francis was preceded in death y her husband of 57 years and all her brothers and sisters. She is survived by her 10 children. Her 5 sons and spouses: Steve and Francine, Dave and Ida, John and Chris, Joe and Janis, Mike and Phyllis.

Also 24 grandchildren, 27 great grandchildren, and 1 great, great granddaughter. She set an incredible example of love, hard work, and ingenuity for her children and grandchildren. We were so blessed to have such a wonderful mother. The next time we see a rainbow, we'll know she's in heaven stretching out fabric for her next quilt.
