Obituary of Frances Gonzales

Please share a memory of Frances to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Frances O. Gonzales was born November 1933 to Lola Sandoval and Antonio Olmos in Miami, Arizona. She had fond memories of her beloved great-grandfather and her grandmother. Frances had a large family around her there in the small town. She had many aunts, uncles and cousins. They had family roots in New Mexico. Sometime around the start of World War II, Frances with her family moved out west to California. They lived mainly in the Los Angeles area. She did spend sometime living in Santa Maria, CA on the coast north of Los Angeles. She enjoyed telling her own children what these areas used to look like ‘way back then’. Frances went to high school in Los Aneles County and met her future husband, Alex V. Gonzales there in her neighborhood. The two of them later married in 1952. The couple went on to have 6 children and 6 grandchildren. Her husband, Alex, predeceased her as well as many other family members. Her favorite job was home caretaker for Dick Clark. She worked for the Clark’s for several years and was always a big fan. She adored them and they were good to her. After retirement, she and Alex moved to Harstine Island, WA. In her lifetime she enjoyed drinking glasses of icy coca-cola at the corner drug store, meeting new friends, going to the movies, chatting, taking care of her pets, light gardening, shopping, sewing quilt tops and car rides. Frances also liked watching movies and television (T.V.), listening to music from her younger years, reading and working on crossword puzzles. She enjoyed parties and…...especially visits from her grandchildren. Frances will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
