Fran, 79, of Incline Village passed away in the early morning at Regent Care Center in Reno on November 7th. Born in Salinas, CA she is survived by her three sons and four grandchildren. Her three boys are Tim and his wife Leslie Oliver of South Lake Tahoe Terry Oliver of Reno and Todd and Suzy Oliver of Menlo Park, California. Her four grandchildren were able to spend a lot of time with her in the summers in Lake Tahoe, are Taylor (16), Nicholas (14), Bradley (12) and Madeline (11). Fran was predeceased by her loving husband Richard "Rick" Oliver and her parents Alberta and John McLean.

Fran was always a kind and loving person that made everyone around her feel good. She attended Berkeley and UCLA and was very involved in the Republican Women's Club including being President of the Northern Nevada chapter. She was a "second mom" to many of her son's friends and enjoyed entertaining at home and traveling the world. We are having a Celebration of Life dinner on Sunday the 25th at a local restaurant in Reno.
