Frances Margaret Byrne

April 27, 1917 - August 30, 2009


Fran was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and lived through her teens there. She graduated from Mt. St. Joseph on the Ohio college. During World War II Fran joined the US Coast Guard and was stationed in Florida. Upon leaving the Coast Guard, Fran and her mother, Clara, moved to California. Frances had a long career with LA County Hospital. Upon retirement Fran moved to Leisure World now Laguna Woods in the 1960’s with Helen Barr, a long time friend. We lost Helen a couple of years ago but we have fond memories of their gracious hospitality and the elegance and class of both ladies. Fran spent many hours volunteering for her church and was a devout Catholic all her life. Jesus has welcomed a special person home.

  1. Gary says:

    Fran was my Godmother by proxy. Fran and her mother Clara moved to California after she was separated from the US Coast Guard in Florida before I was born in 1945. An only child and never married Fran had no relatives near her. I met her in 1967 as I was returning from Viet Nam. We stayed in touch after that. I moved to Washington in 1991 and was able to see Fran occasionally. She volunteered at her church for many years and always was a gracious host when we visited. She was loved by many and I will miss her.

  2. Fran was one of my Aunt Agnes’ oldest and best friends. We were priveleged to visit with her about a year and a half ago when we were out visiting Aunt Agnes and took her to Laguna to see Fran. She seemed so happy for the company. It was obvious how devoted these two friends were to each other. We will all miss Fran after knowing her since we were kids.
