Frances Donlin Obituary
Donlin, Frances Antoinette

Frances A. Donlin, born December 27, 1942 in Bronx, New York, passed away Saturday, August 27, 2016. Frances lost her battle with breast cancer, as did her elder sister, Josephine Sansano, in May of 1993. She is survived by her beloved husband, Bill Donlin Sr.; her four loving children, Bill Donlin Jr., Suzanne and Doug Stinger, Karen and Marty Ryan, Matt Donlin and her dear loving younger sister, Lynda Sue Magoon. Frances had the joy of sharing in the lives of her five grandchildren and three great-grandbabies.

The passion of her life came from her deep devotion to Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother Mary. She believed that her life's purpose was to devote herself to her husband and her children according to God's Will. Below is a message from Frances to "Her Bill."

"Thank you for being the man you are and the supportive and loving spouse you've always been. Our love has always been a true love that has endured growth and defined bliss. The friendship that we shared raising our four beautiful children into the wonderful people they are today affirms that our hearts continued to have one beat. The beat of True Love... Thank you for being My Everything in this life. Love, Your Frannie"
