Age 73 of Roseburg, Oregon, Frances S. Fash went to her heavenly home on January 2nd, 2017. Her dedication to family and her firm belief in God comforted her and ultimately gave her peace.
Frances was born July 22, 1943, to Frank and Julia Fash in Phoenix, Arizona.
Frances worked at a variety of types of institutions as a dietician, from hospitals and nursing homes, to juvenile detention centers. She liked to travel and lived in many places in the western United States, also Alaska, and Hawaii.
Frances always had room for one more, as her own children grew she fostered and sheltered many, adopted a few, and loved them all. She was proudest of knowing she had helped so many at risk youth and teens, too many to count. She always found a way, even as a young widow, to feed them. There was always room for one more at the table.
Her life was full, her house was full, her table was full, and her heart was full. She will be greatly missed by many.
