Francis and Bill Newton and their family, lived across the street from me for years and years. I remember so many things about her, but most of all I remember she came over and stayed with our daughter, Anna Maria, who was born with a heart defect, while I would take the other two children to school. I would go over to their house and she would be making baby quilts and blankets for everyone, even sending many to her Mother to give to other people. Francis was a wonderful person, the very best, and would do whatever she could for you. We were very close for so long. I am sure she will be missed very much by her family and so many other people. To the family of Francis, I send you my sincere condolences, and even though I haven't kept in touch, I always get a Christmas card from one of her her daughters, Shanna and son, Joe, every year and still do. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Anna Bazzanella
