Obituary of Frances Hanscom Moran

Please share a memory of Frances to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Frances (Hanscom) Moran, 81 of East Machias, died peacefully at home with her family at her side on November 17, 2010 after a short illness. She was born January 1, 1929 in Marshfield, Maine and lived in Washington County her entire life. Her loving and devoted husband, Frederick, predeceased her in 2003. Frances attended high school and college in Machias and was a member of the Kappa Alpha Kappa sorority. Frances was a true “downeaster” who was very independent and committed to her beliefs. She held several jobs during her lifetime and did volunteer work including teaching Sunday School and as a 4H Leader. Her primary and most valued job was providing a loving home for her husband and children. Frances had a great spirit and enjoyed many things, including painting, antiques, dancing and spending time at camp with the family. When her children were young they took regular Sunday drives, picnicked, and took yearly camping trips out of state. Frances is survived by daughter, Bonnie Moran of East Machias; son Michael and his wife Jeannine of Bangor; daughter Cathy Parsons and her husband Steve of Troy, Maine; grandchildren Isaac, Micah and Kristen Moran; great-grandchildren Ariyana and Ethan Moran; siblings Herbert and Ivan Hanscom, several in-laws, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, Lelia and Herbert Hanscom Sr., siblings Clinton and Raymond Hanscom, and Eleanor Dorr. Frances has requested that there be no services held.
