Frannie was always willing to help and support everyone while working at Colonial UniServ. We missed you when you retired, but were glad you had a chance to enjoy your Jimmy Buffet and margaritas. Prayers, healing, and comfort to the family.
Missed you after you moved. I always enjoyed our dinners at Spring Garden after the VEA meetings. That restaurant is gone too but they were good memories.
She was a very warm person and will be sorely missed.
You were a phenomenally strong woman
Always a smile
You will be missed
Dear Frannie--you have broken my heart-- I miss you every single day--Thank you for the outings we did--there will not be another friend like you were!!
We all loved Frannie so much. She was so good at her job but more importantly she was a true friend to all sho loved her.
I am so sorry. Frannie was dear to us in Colonial Uniserv as well as an invaluable employee. I know she will be missed by all her friends and family.
Will miss your smiling face and love of life, friend, family and fun.
I am thy sister.
I will miss my "older than dirt" (as we joked) long time friend and I enjoyed every visit we could fit in when I was visiting down in Florida after you moved there from Virginia. So glad I got to see you last year when I was down! RIP Frannie Moberly I will find you another day for a toast in Margheritaville! —
