Frances Sabia was a first generation American born to Italian immigrants. She was one of ten children, nine that survived childhood.
She devoted her life to the family farm along with her husband, siblings, and her parents maintaining the business and the household.
Frances was the heart of the family, not only to her children and grandchildren but to her siblings, nieces, nephews and many family friends.
In a world where we don't remember phone numbers, everyone has Fran's number committed to memory. No matter where you were or what you needed, she was always able to get you help or make you feel like you were not alone.
Her house was a 2nd home to everyone who visited. You could stop by anytime, the coffee was always on and the kitchen floor was mopped daily. She was an excellent cook and loved feeding people, animals, and birds. While she is no longer on this earth, Frances lives on through her children and her recipes that she never wrote down.
