Frances Frye Shorey, 89, (formerly Frances Gaudet), joined her heavenly Father on July 28, 2016, after a long illness. In her youth, Frances served as a surrogate mother to her three younger siblings before becoming a very caring and loving mother to her own family.
She is survived by her son, Richard Frye and his wife, Ofelia; grandchildren, Richard, Scott, Erica, Rachel and Anthony; and great-granddaughter, Emma. She is also survived by stepdaughter, Diane Cole; stepson, Thomas Shorey; by her siblings, Shirley Gagnon and Ernest Gaudet; half-brother, David Gaudet; and daughter-in-law, Myong Cha Hayes.
Frances retired from Sears in Bangor, spending many career years in sales management. Very laudable care in the last few years has been provided to Frances by Robert Jones and more recently, with the assist of hospice.
In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honor Frances may make gifts in her memory to Hospice Volusia Flagler, Orange City FL or Saint Barnabas Episcopal Church We Will Campaign, 319 W. Wisconsin Ave., Deland, FL.
