Frances “Franny” (Goddard) Windon  

Formerly of Beaver Falls

Frances “Franny” (Goddard) Windon, 90, of Palm City, FL, formerly of Beaver Falls, passed away with her daughter and her granddaughter by her side on Tuesday, December 18, 2018.

Born September 24, 1928 in Charleston, West Virginia, she was the daughter of the late Ernest and Florence Pauley Goddard.

Fran was married to the love of her life, the late Ralph C. Windon for 43 years and they resided in Beaver Falls.  Fran was a devoted mother and Nana; she had a special relationship with her grand kids and loved spending time with family and friends.  Fran was known for her love of reading and working jigsaw puzzles, but she will be most remembered for telling “the stories of her life” and her sense of humor.  Fran’s lifetime was dedicated to helping and taking care of others; she always had a smile on her face and never met a stranger.

Fran is survived by her children, Richard Woolford (Wanda), New Brighton, PA, Michael Windon (Vicki), Springfield, MO, and Lynda Windon Emilson (David), Palm City, FL, her five grandchildren, Christian Woolford (Candee), Victoria Woolford (Jeremy), Kassandra Windon Smith (Steven), Benjamen Windon and Joshua Emilson (Savannah), seven great-grandchildren, Abby Woolford, Breannah Gundy, Mykah Kinkade, Elisha and Sophia Smith, Aiden and Stella Rae Emilson, a brother, Charles Goddard (Myrna), and a sister, Velma Goddard Windon.

In addition to her parents and her husband, Fran was preceded in death by four brothers, Robert, Paul, David, and Larry Goddard, and a sister, Linda Goddard Lingle.

The family would like to thank Martin Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Room staff and Treasure Coast Hospice for their compassionate care and guidance.

There will be a memorial visitation in the Hill & Kunselman Funeral Home,, 3801 Fourth Ave., College Hill, on Saturday, January 19, 2019 from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. with Rev. Donald MacNeil officiating.  Friends and relatives are welcome to attend a reception at Giuseppe’s Tuscany Grille, 7072 Big Beaver Boulevard, Beaver Falls, immediately following the service.  Inurnment will take place in January at the South Florida National Cemetery, 6501 State Road 7, Lake Worth, FL 33449.
