Our deepest sympathies on the loss of our beloved Frannie. She was a wonderful woman who we loved dearly. We have such great memories of her over the years we have known her and Ellis. Most memorable, she sang on stage with Gary at The Great Northern Music hall. To her family we send our prayers and blessings that your memories and each other give you comfort. Love you Stella Frances (☺️❤️)
