Frances Mae Labyorteaux Obituary

Frances Mae Labyorteaux, 85, passed away January 28th after a six-month illness.

Performing early in her career as Frankie Marshall, she spent seven decades in show business, from Vaudeville and nightclubs, touring with the Tommy Dorsey band, to film and television.

Predeceased by her beloved husband Ronald, daughter Janie and sister Betty, she is survived by sons Patrick (Tina) Labyorteaux and Matthew Labyorteaux, granddaughter Ericka Christensen, brother Bud Newman, her constant companion Tina the dog, and dear friends Noreen Reardon and Paula Cwikly. Her favorite role was that of doting Great Grandma GG to Jeau, Taylor and Annabelle.

Along with adopting all of her children, Frances gave a loving home to countless abandoned animals and any friend in need, and will be remembered as a strong, funny, loving and generous woman, who was passionate about her family, her dogs and show biz.

There will be a celebration of her life on Saturday, February 4th. Contact [email protected] for info. Donations in her memory may be made to rescuetrain.org
