Mary Frances Galyen

Kanarravile, Utah

Mary Frances Galyen joined our heavenly father and rejoined her husband, Larry, on March 5, 2013. She enjoyed a great life of 87 years. She and Larry retired from CA to Kanarraville, UT in the early 1980's and lived there for 30 years. Larry passed on in September of 2008. Fran chose to stay in Kanarra until April of 2012. Following a back injury she moved to Fresno CA to live with her daughter and son-in-law, Roberta and Bill Loudermilk She enjoyed watching her grandkids and great grandkids grow.

Fran is the 6th child of William and Wilhelmina Denos. She had three brothers and three sisters: Helen Gorman, Minnie DeGraaf, Sam Denos, Bill Denos, Herman Denos, and Pauline Hartman. Fran is survived by her brother, Herman who lives in Southern California, a daughter, Roberta Loudermilk from Fresno, California, 2 step-daughters, Barbara and Vickie, and several grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Fran loved music and singing, quilting, gardening and canning, cooking, reading, and time with her friends and family. She never met a BBQ'd spare rib she didn't like and could easily polish off a full rack of Wingers ribs. She also loved to laugh.

A small graveside service for family and close friends is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday March 16th at the Kanarraville Cemetery under the direction of Southern Utah Mortuary. Online condolences can be sent to
