Frances (Frannie) A. Dzeskewicz, age 88 of McKean Twp., passed away at her home on Thursday, November 28, 2019 surrounded by her family. She was born in McKean Twp., on February 21, 1931, a daughter of the late John and Katherine Skupinski Dzeskewicz.
Frannie was a loving sister, aunt and friend who enjoyed spending time nurturing her flower and vegetable gardens and playing cards. It was a comfort and pleasure to continue Polish family Christmas traditions of baking pizzelles and pierogies. A longtime and active member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, she served on the Rosary Society, Sunshine Circle, as well as McKean Hose Company Ladies Auxiliary. She devotedly coordinated donations from church members to provide the funeral reception meal for those mourning the loss of a loved one. Prior to retirement, she was employed with Teledyne Penn Union.
In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by five brothers; Adam (Genevieve) Dzeskewicz, Joseph (Mary) Dzeskewicz, Frank (Delores) Dzeskewicz, Chester (Loretta) Dzeskewicz, John (Jessie) Dzeskewicz; four sisters; Anna (Nicholas) Danylko, Helen (Felix) Wozniak, Loretta (Leo) Olszewski, and infant Mary Dzeskewicz.
She is survived by a sister and brother-in-law, Eleanor and Richard Fox, of McKean, PA, several nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and twelve Godchildren.
