Frances C. Condit, 74, of Plano, Texas passed away peacefully at home on September 3, 2017.  She was born on Staten Island, New York on January 16, 1943.  She graduated high school in 1960 from Notre Dame Academy and in 1964 earned a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Notre Dame College now part of St. John’s University.

After living the first 27 years of her life in New York, 1970 until 1975, was spent moving several times. First to Toledo, Ohio then to Baltimore, Maryland followed by a brief stay in Sommerville, New Jersey before making her home in Texas.  Fran’s family was very important to her. She was a devoted mom to her two children being a stay at home mom, soccer coach, school volunteer, girl scout cookie mom and holding countless other roles.

In the late 1970s Fran returned to the workforce at MPF Research.  She remained with MPF (now Realpage) until she retired in 2005.

Her biggest joy in life was being a grandmother.  For many years, she spent every Saturday evening spoiling her grandchildren.  She went annually to the circus, didn’t miss a childrens’ concert, and traveled to Disney World three times.

In 2015 after a lengthy illness, Fran moved into Brookdale Collin Oaks Assisted Living.  She was proud to be made a Resident Ambassador and enjoyed helping with activities.  She never slowed down and always had new ideas and projects in the works.

My dearest Fran, I treasure my many memories, after all 26 years, creates many good ones. I even treasure all the trips to the ER, all the trips to the doctors and spending moments sitting by your bedside. The eight years living next to each other, I think, were some of the happiest years. You will be missed in my heart and soul.

Dawn and KC,

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with your mom at MPF for 8 years and she was a wonderful friend and mentor. I fell out of contact with her of late and I regret that deeply. I wish I could be there tomorrow, but family commitments prohibit it. I remember Fran coming in on Mondays and telling me everything Rachel and Jason were up to on your date night. She was so proud of all of you (including the grandcats). People like Fran are rare and to be treasured. I will be thinking of you tomorrow. Take care.
