Francine A. Moran
Mar 04, 1946 - Mar 13, 2013
Resident of Brentwood
Fran left us earlier than later when her higher power called her to start her next journey. She was an amazing woman. Fran had plenty of grit, determination, loyalty and love to share. She never met a stranger. She loved sharing her childhood memories of growing up in rural Minnesota and considered herself a farm girl, and yet was able to become a classy city girl when she needed too without losing her country charm. She loved animals, cooking, gardening, decorating, reading biographies, museums, churches, and the arts.
Fran excelled at living. Her journey led her to live life to it's fullest. She traveled abroad, took several cruises & loved big or little road trips. By herself she took our RV over the Rocky Mtns and back with her two dogs as co-pilots. She set her foot down in all 50 states. She was an extra in a movie and did a couple of TV commercials. She embraced all religions and studied as many as she could taking a little from each.
Fran leaves behind her husband of 46 years, Wayne, her son Jim, daughter-in-law Rayleen two grandsons Nathan & Joseph. They were the joy & light of her life and they called her "Grandma Puppies". She absolutely loved her sister-in-law Mary and she became "Sis" to Fran. She also leaves behind several nieces and nephews and numerous cousins and friends. She will be greatly missed by one and all.
A "Celebration of Life" will be held on Friday Mar 22 at "Caps" 144 Oak St, Brentwood CA at 1:00pm.
In lieu of flowers please make donations to;
"Born to Dance" c/o Sherry Keene, 962 Whitehall Lane, Brentwood, CA 94513.
