Fran, as she known to all of her friends and family, was born in Seattle on January 29, 1934 and passed away October 28, 2012. Her passing was quite sudden and unexpected. She is survived by her husband Pete, and children Shelley, Glenn, her sister Minnie and her brothers Gilbert, Chuck and Howard. Fran's maiden name was Ruoff, and she has several cousins. John, Kevin, Ted, Mary and Emma Ruoff nee: Hope. She's also survived by her niece Cheryl Hancock and nephews Bill, Bob, Brad and Brian Hancock.

Fran graduated from Holy Rosary High School in 1952, and shortly thereafter, moved to San Francisco with her dear friend Joanne Harrell nee: Teets. While in San Francisco she decided to join the Navy. Oddly enough, her husband joined the Navy on the same day in Washington D.C. They met in San Francisco at the Navy Base on Treasure Island. Fran came to sing on the band, and Pete was playing trumpet. She told everyone that she knew he was the one for her. Pete was transferred to the Navy School of Music in D.C.

After living in the east for a couple of years, they moved to Las Vegas, where she sang with a lounge group. They finally settled in Seattle in 1972 and she worked as a legal secretary. She did continue to sing, both with a Jazz Choir at North Seattle Community College, as well as a couple of different bands. She loved to sing.

We'll always remember her laughter, and the great love she had for her family and friends.
