    Fannie was one of the first to welcome my husband and me to St Frances Cabrini. She asked me to join the Sodality and we discovered we lived close together so we would switch driving times. I worked with her on Sodality fund raisers, the famous spaghetti dinner, funeral lunches and the Sodality bingo at St Joseph Villa. When she could no longer drive, I would pick her up for different functions. To thank me, she would insist that we stop at Nettie’s restaurant and she treated me to a good meal, enjoyable conversation and laughter. She was a great Husker fan and I miss her excitement when she would talk about the games. Fannie was loved by all who came to know her. She touched so many lives and will be missed. My deepest sympathy to all the family.
