Fran & I met at a Nutcracker children school show- we seated 150 1st graders in the 4th ring in 2 minutes! Her positive charm was infectious & embracing. John Lant of Write Act Rep, playwrite Maarten Cornelis & director Joe LoBianco send their condolences. Peter Damien Loza & Caroline Conoly of NYCBallet send their condolences to family and friends.

We will always have fond memories of you being so gracious
To be so kind and take us around the city. And all the wonderfull
Places we got to see with you. What a blast we had and all the laughs
You gave us. You were the energizer bunny that day go go go!
Thanks for those memories we will hold dear forever.
Your beautiful soul and energy will be missed.

With love Ray & Shirley

I am so sorry to hear about Fran passing.She was indeed always so present, animated and open minded.

My thoughts are with her family and friends.

While being a great cook, Frans desserts were

Rest In Eternal Peace, my beloved friend. We met in June of 1981 when I was 21 and you were 29. We bonded that summer working at the Forestburg Playhouse. An Equity Stage Manager, you taught me the ropes of how to run tech for theatre before I started my first teaching job at Pine Bush HS. For ten years you came and would spend a week or more with me designing the lights for our annual High School musical
