♥My Aunt Fran♥
She was my Mom's younger sister & the Aunt I was closest to


Daughter of the late Sophie Mary Gabrysh Mazur & Peter (Piotr) Kowalski.


She was 1 of 15 children in the "blended" family of Sophie & Piotr; their second child together. Her parents were each widowed, then divorced, before they met.

Beloved Wife of Robert A. Wills.

Beloved Mother of Charles (Debbie), Steven (Therese), David (Sandy), John (Janine), & Linda.

Beloved Grandmother of Andrea, Robert, Jason, Amy, Marybeth, Brian, Amanda, Jerry, Jessica, Ashley, & Timothy.

Beloved Great grandmother of 3.

Beloved Aunt to many nieces & nephews.

Aunt Fran was a homemaker. She raised a very close, loving & caring family. No matter what, they are there for each other. I know she was proud then & still is.

She was also an awesome bowler & enjoyed golfing. Camping, fishing, snow mobiling, she did it all.

Aunt Fran was a jokester, even during her 10+ year battle with renal cell carcinoma. Without notice she'd drop her false teeth, just to make you laugh. Aunt Fran was a real character she'd make you laugh until your sides hurt.

Aunt Fran was also very proud of her Polish heritage & even taught some of her grandchildren to speak a little Polish.

She, along with most of her siblings, was a member of the Bluewater Polka Boosters.

Aunt Fran, Uncle Bob, & their 5 children were also very active in the Civil Air Patrol prior to Fran's battle with cancer.
