Obituary for Frances Stavish

Fran was born in Swoyersville, Pennsylvania to Charles and Helen Kapral. She was raised in Swoyersville with ten brothers and sisters, all pre-deceased.

Fran and her future husband Dan Stavish met in high school. They were married in Swoyersville Holy Trinity Church. Last August they celebrated 66 years of marriage.

Soon after their marriage they moved to Manhattan. While living there their daughter Mary and their first son Daniel were born. They moved to Morrisville, Pennsylvania in 1960 where son Michael was born. Fran worked 35 years with American Cigar and General Electric/Trane.

She was a loving mother and enjoyed watching her family grow and spending time with them. She and Dan enjoyed visiting Jersey Shores, Outer Banks, North Carolina and flying and driving to California. During their driving trips they went through over 35 states. They also enjoyed cruises to Hawaii, Mexico and Alaska. A few years ago they bought a vacation mobile home on the Delaware shore.

Besides Dan, Fran leaves behind daughter Mary Duke (Clay), sons Daniel R. Stavish, Jr. (Lisa), and Michael Stavish (Mary Jane). Her grandchildren were very special to her: Andy (Kerry), Alex (Amy), Michael (Katelyn), Daniel III (Ashley), Ashley, Zac (Margaret), Alec, and Stephanie who predecease her. They gave her ten great grandchildren, Brett (Ariana), Alex (Nicole), Robyn, Gina, Michael, Henry, Melanie, Kenzie, Ella and Louis.
