Fran was Provincetown's oldest resident and she had the award to prove it. She had been honored recipient of the Boston Post Cane, a distinguished award by Boston Post Newspaper's board of selectmen, first presented in 1909, to be bestowed upon a town's eldest resident over age 90.

Fran was of Portuguese Azorean heritage, born to Joseph J. and Mary (Medeiros) Perry. She graduated from Provincetown High School. She worked hard throughout her life: a waitress, and then for New England Telephone and Telegraph Company, earning rank of chief operator - retiring April, 1966 as the new technology of dial made operator connections obsolete. Until recently, she managed Skipper Raymond's and Captain Raymond's rental cottages, which she and her husband, Frank Raymond, owned together.

Her community involvement and convictions included: Telephone Pioneers Club, Catholic Daughters of America, lifelong member of St. Peter the Apostle Parish in Provincetown.

Nieces and nephews; great nieces and great nephews; and other inter-generational relatives miss Fran in this life, as on Heaven-side she joins her husband, her parents, and others dear to her who passed on before her.

Her home church, St. Peter the Apostle, Provincetown, held funeral mass in her honor June 17. Memorials may be made to Provincetown Rescue Squad, 25 Shank Painter Road, Provincetown, MA 02657.
