Francyne M. “Fran” Yarusso, our dear and beloved sister-in-law, aunt, relative and friend, passed away peacefully at the age of 85 on April 30, 2022 in the early morning hours.

Fran was 100% Italian, and came from two prominent restaurant families (Yarusso’s and Gino’s) on the East Side of St. Paul. She was a generous, kind and loving person who had many close friends and relatives.
She attended St. Catherine University for two years then went to work for a new airline called Northwest “Red Tails” Airlines, which eventually became Delta Airlines. She worked for 45 years as a reservation supervisor and was instrumental in setting up the London reservation office. A world traveler who loved visiting different countries and experiencing different cultures with her many friends.
Fran had a lifelong love of food, and often gathered with her many circles of friends to eat, drink, laugh and have fun. The laughter would go on for hours.
The Angels were singing, and the Italians met Fran with a plate of pasta! Fran was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
