Born May 9, 1947 in Barberton, Ohio, she was the daughter of John and Christine (Casserman) Stopar. She married Jim Dickinson in Barberton on Nov. 23, 1974. Fran graduated from Barberton High School in 1965 and was a purchasing clerk with The Babcock and Wilcox Co. for many years. She volunteered at Mercy Medical Center in Canton and was involved with operating the North Canton Middle School clinic. Fran was a member of Lifeline Church in Madison, Ohio, and was blessed with many miracles through the aid of all the 'prayer warriors.' During her battle with cancer, she was also blessed with hope and healing from her doctor and staff at Lake Health Siedman Cancer Center. Fran loved the water and enjoyed walking the Lake Erie shore while looking for beach glass. Most of all, she was a loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.
Fran is survived by her loving husband of 39 years, Jim Dickinson; son, Ryan (Robyn) Dickinson; grandchildren, Alyson, Emily, and Aubrey; brother, Bob (Joni) Stopar; sister, Janice (Stephen) Yorks; and many loving nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
