Frenchville—Dora Franck, 92 passed away on Monday, January 13, 2020 at Ridgewood in Madawaska.  She began her life on September 11, 1927 in Fort Kent, Maine , the daughter of Ligori and Elise ‘Michaud’ Robichaud.  Dora grew up in Fort Kent and then married the love of her life, Philip Franck.

Dora worked as a bookkeeper for Johnston Oil; Northern Trading; and a Bank Teller for Key Bank.  She was co-owner with her husband and bookkeeper for Valley Service and Tuffkote Rust Proofing.

 

Dora devoted her life to raising 8 independent children.  She had an extremely big heart and touched many people in her own special way.   She was also an amazing cook and her most memorable were the Sunday lunches with Glen Miller with music playing in the background, singing or dancing in the kitchen with Phil, while adding a spice or two.  She was an avid baseball fan, go Atlanta Braves; and a Duke Blue Devils basketball fan.  If there was any game on television, she had to watch.  She also loved game shows and crossword puzzles.  She had a competitive streak with playing cards and would rarely refuse an opportunity to play Charlemagne.  She is now at peace with her one and only, Phil. 

 

Family and friends may pay their respects on Saturday, January 18 at the St. Luce Catholic Church, Frenchville starting at 8:30 AM until time of service.  A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 10 AM.  A time of fellowship will be held immediately afterward at the Frenchville Community Center.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Ridgewood Estates Activity Department.

Please accept my condolences, and it is my hope that memories would be a source of comfort to you. I am sure that they are. Just reading about her and Phil listening to the music of Glen Miller, while preparing Sunday lunch, showed me that she knew fine music, and that she had class.

To all my cousins and family. My thoughts and heart are with you even when I can not personally make it the funeral. I am sure Uncle Phil and Aunt Dora are happily reunited and I think of them with my Mom and Dad, dancing and playing cards, with that great laugh of Dora's!
