Francine Ann Fry, 64, of Reedsburg, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her loved ones on April 6, 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born on October 28, 1956 in Illinois, the daughter to Sigmund and Grace (Andrews) Zuba. Fran will be remembered for her inspirational zest for life, “can do” attitude, and unwavering faith. She loved spending time with her kids and grandkids, chickens, her cats, quilting, and gardening. Fran tackled her fight with cancer with a level of optimism, determination, and grace that was nothing short of admirable. Fran left a big impression on so many people, and she will be missed by all that knew her.
Francine was preceded in death by her parents, Sigmund and Grace (Andrews) Zuba.
She is survived by her four children, Sarah Fry (Shawn Ruddy), Holly McMillin (Mitch), Katie Lands (Cecil Jr.), and Nickolas Fry (Caitlin); six grandchildren, Paige, Isaiah and Laila Ruddy, Victoria and Marshall Fry, and Alyssa Polanco (Luis and Autumn); as well as her four older siblings; and multiple nieces and nephews.
