In memory of
Frances "Fran" Blanke
On September 30th, 2019, Fran heard the long awaited and much deserved words, "Well done, good and faithful servant… enter into the joy of your rest" (Matthew 25:21). Fran was born on October 21st, 1959, to her loving mother, Mary Karl Dauphin and her father, the late Derbes Dauphin. Fran is survived by her husband of almost 34 years, Tommy, as well as sons, Travis (Katie), Matt (Amy), and Andrew. She is also survived by sisters, Vickie Dewey and Patricia Dauphin (fiance' Bill). In addition, Fran is remembered lovingly by her mother-in-law, Gerry Blanke, along with a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers/sisters-in-law, nieces, and nephews. Daily Fran would strive to live out the Great Commandment, to love the Lord God with all her heart, mind, soul, and strength, and to love others as herself. And she succeeded remarkably, the Lord Jesus living in and working through her. Fran lived her life with a selfless spirit, her labors of love always established by a joyful heart. Fran's passion in life was to know the Lord more and more, and to make Him known. Her other passion was, without question, her family. Fran was all about family – her sons and precious daughters-in-law, as well as her extended family. Fran ran the race that was set before her with unwavering faith and patient endurance. Throughout her prolonged period of intense suffering, her focus was (incredibly) always on the well-being of others. To those of you who truly knew Fran, no words are necessary. Those of you who did not know her, no words would be adequate. Fran, "many daughters have done well, but you excel them all" (Proverbs 31:29). Well done indeed, our beloved! Many thanks to those who came along side us over the past several years in prayer and support. Thanks to the doctors and staff at the Ochsner multidisciplinary clinic, especially Dr. K and Ms. Je'na'. And thanks to all the Saints at Team Gleason. A celebration of Fran's life will be held on Friday, October 11th, 2019 at Fellowship Bible Church, 4600 Clearview Parkway. Visitation will begin at 9AM with a service to follow at 11AM. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Team Gleason. An online guestbook is available at www.LeitzEaganFuneralHome.com.
