We offer our condolences to you and your family on your mom’s passing. Although we moved out of state more than 15 years ago, it was always nice to see Frances in the choir on our return visits. During our brief visit in 2019, Vicky told us about Frances’ health concerns and she has been in our prayers. Thursday when Jack was on the computer, he noticed a funeral Mass for Frances Tracy was being said at OLPH. We checked for information, and have made a contribution to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in memory of Frances.
With sympathy,
Jack & Phyllis D’Atre

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I had known Francis through Cursillo and she was an inspiration to me. She had a wonderful sense of humor and one knew without doubt her love of our Lord and her deep Catholic faith. She was a friend and made many friends and brought many to Christ.

Roger and I are saddened to hear of Frances' passing. She was a good coworker on the Surgical Service at the VA and we had happy times in the office. We were privileged to have her sing at our wedding at Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Her lovely voice will be long remembered. Our deepest sympathies to her family.
