Frances Berman Bloom 1920-2011
Sad, but not tragic. My Aunt Frances passed away yesterday. She was almost 91 years old. Frances had a long and happy life, married to my Uncle, Mort Bloom. I spent lots of time at their house when I was a youngster. My cousins, Amie, Barbie and Carol are all close to my age. It was a never-ending slumber party at their house, with Aunt Frances joining in our fun.

Frances was a talented actress, as well as an enamel artist and fiber arts talent. She was an excellent cook and always ready to offer her home and hospitality to all. She was quick-witted and had a marvelous sense of humor. We talked about knitting ALL the time. I will truly miss my Auntie Frances.
