Many wonderful memories of Fran starting in Nursing School. We interacted often in our Nursing careers even when not working at same place. I always knew Fran could help with patient care. Thank you, dear Fran. Will miss and remember you.

Oh, Julie and Eddie, the Trehey’s are so sad to read this news. The only consolation is your Mom is with your Dad and Mike. Her heart, as was yours, was broken after losing Mike and your Dad. What fond memories we have of your parents - whether it was high school, Dr Johnson’s office, the fire department or just life. What a beautiful legacy she leaves behind with you, Eddie, and the grandkiddos. Much love to you all!! The Trehey’s.

Julie, Ed and your entire family, I am so sorry I missed this service. I would have been there if I could have. Fran hired me for my very first job – “the babysitter.” I always enjoyed seeing your mom and dad at different fire department events over the years. They were both a great influence on me in my teenage and young adult years. It has been my honor to know your mother, and her mother Alice, who was a friend of my grandmother’s. Peace be with you all. Love and prayers, Kelli.
