Beatrice Francisco, originally from Bronx NY then upstate Little Falls NY then Sebring FL, passed peacefully with her family by her side on Friday, June 28th in Melbourne FL, after a brief illness. She was predeceased by her loving husband of over 60 years, Lawrence R. Francisco.
Betty lived a long and full life of 89 years, during which time she enjoyed careers in dentistry, cosmetology and real estate. Her passions included drawing, painting, arts & crafts and she enjoyed sharing her artistic talents with others. Her love was her family, friends and many acquaintances she made living and sharing a joy filled life.
Betty is survived by her three sons, Curt (and his wife Terri), Glen (and his wife Nedra), and Dean (and his wife Sheila). She was a loving Grammie to 12 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. She will be dearly missed.
