Fanny was born in Bogota, Columbia in 1922 and by the time she was 8 years old, both of her parents were deceased and she was an orphan. The President of Columbia wanted to adopt her but she moved to Panama City, Panama instead, where she was a professional seamstress, sewing for many dignitaries in that country. Fanny was very active in her grandchildren's lives. She never missed a game, traveling to many football and baseball games. Fanny was a very devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and sister and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Cremation has taken place and a Prayer Service will be held Sunday December 3, 2017, 11:00 a.m. at FRENCH-Lomas. Interment at Santa Fe National Cemetery will take place at a later date. Honorary pallbearers will be her grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Fanny's name to the Kindred Hospice Foundation, 680 South Fourth St. Louisville, KY 40202, kindredhealthcare.com.
