In Memory of Fran O'Neal

Mrs. Fran O’Neal, a beloved teacher at St. Francis for 25 years, passed away on
December 20. She was an inspiration for her students and colleagues alike. Fran
had very high standards. She was an exceptional English teacher and expected
great work of her students. She also commanded respect in the classroom.
“Gentlemen, I will write you up in triplicate,” was a line Fran used sparingly but
with great effect to calm down youthful exuberance.


To honor and memorialize her love of English and teaching, Fran and her husband
of 56 years, Bill, established the Fran A. O’Neal Scholarship Fund. It will benefit
deserving young men at St. Francis who have demonstrated great proficiencies
and interest in English and teaching.


Fran devoted her life devoted to her husband, her students, and her community.
In memory of Fran, contributions may be made to the high school through the
Fran A. O’Neal Scholarship.

that Bill O’Neal may personally acknowledge your memorial contribution.
