My most sincere condolences to Terri and Kim and Judy and her family!!!!! I had the pleasure of knowing this most remarkable human being for over 30 yrs!!!! My children and grandson had the extreme pleasure of having Fran as a sub!!!! She was known to them as MRS FINN"!!!! Whenever I would run into her at church, she always inquired how they all were, what were they doing and she always remembered their names!!!! We exchanged Christmas cards every year and also notes of encouragement when Terri was hospitalized, when Jim passed on.....She touched the lives of so many of her students!!! She truly will be missed....Rest in peace, Mrs Finn!!!!!

So sorry to hear of Mrs Finn’s passing. She was well loved in the halls of Parkman . My sons class (2010) donated their yearbook to her which I believe really made her happy. I would run into her shopping quite frequently and she always asked about my children and remember their names.

Judy and family~
So very sorry to have learned of the loss of your Mother. I had not known her as well as others, but she left a long lasting impression on me. She was kind and well liked- she was a great sub teacher to have! Hoping the support you receive from family friends is a comfort to you during this difficult time. Thinking of you all. ((hugs))
