Francesca A. Briem Obituary
Briem, Francesca A.

Francesca (Fran) Briem, age 61, loving wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away 22, February 2016. She died peacefully surrounded by her family at home. Fran was known within the community as co-owner and CEO of Alliance Home Health Care & Hospice and her active volunteer work with the New Mexico Chapter. Within her close circle of family and friends Fran was known for her honesty, generosity, and love. First generation Italian American, Fran was born in Brooklyn and raised in the Bronx. After graduating high school, Fran sought adventure and hitchhiked across America. When she came to New Mexico, she fell in love with the scenic beauty and decided to stay. She met her husband, George in Corrales where they got married and started their life together. After she graduated nursing school, she worked as an RN at University of New Mexico Hospital, eventually making the move to home health care when she took on her greatest job as a mother. Never one to work for anyone else, Fran decided to start her own company where she found her true niche using her quick wit, charisma, and compassion to serve the Albuquerque community. Fran is survived by her husband Bo, their daughter Amanda, her son-in-law Trevor, and her grandchildren. She leaves many cherished friends and family who will always remember her laugh, sense of humor, and ambition. She was a true force. Fran was preceded in death by her parents, Agnes and Franco. A memorial will be held March 18th, 6:00-8:00 pm at Embassy Suites. Memorial contributions may be made to the New Mexico Chapter, 2201 San Pedro NE Albuquerque, NM 87110.
