Frances M. Gaudinier died November 30, 2013 after a long illness. She was predeceased by her parents, Francis and Anne Earley.

She is survived by her husband, Carl of Binghamton, NY; her daughter, Anne Marie (Nancy) Gaudinier and her husband Dr. Alan Lipschitz of North Wales, PA; her son, Carl and his wife Emily of Binghamton, NY; her sisters, Anne Martinelli of Greenwich, CT, Maureen Fadel of Fairfax, VA, Kathleen Williams of Myrtle Beach, SC; and brother, Francis Earley of Myrtle Beach, SC; her three beloved grandchildren, Melissa, Justin and Abigail; and many nieces and nephews.

Frances was born May 24, 1931 in Elmsford, NY. She graduated from Alexander Hamilton High School and worked as a secretary for several employers in Westchester County.

On January 6, 1951 she married Carl and began a romance that would last almost 63 years.

In 1970 she enrolled in Westchester Community College, earning a degree in Radiologic Technology. She went on to a successful career as an x-ray technician at White Plains Hospital Medical Center and at Westchester Urological Associates where she worked as hard at bringing comfort to her patients as she did at the technical aspects of her job.

She and Carl co-owned the Earley News Service of Port Chester, NY for 40 years. After 70 years of residing in Westchester County she relocated to Binghamton to be near family.

Although a very hard working and loyal employee, her true passion in life was her family, and, the oldest of five siblings, she cared for and adored children from an early age. Her own children were both born in 1962, an unexpected gift after more than 11 years of marriage, when she had almost given up hope of raising her own family.

There was absolutely nothing she wouldn't sacrifice for the happiness and well-being of her husband and kids. Her warm-hearted nature extended well beyond the walls of her own home: she befriended, advised and loved many neighborhood kids almost as her own. Many of them even called her Mom. She was a model of kindness, selflessness and compassion. She was greatly admired and will be missed by many.

Calling hours will be on Wednesday, December 4th, 2013, at the Wm. R. Chase & Son Funeral Home, 737 Chenango Street, Port Dickinson, NY from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church in Hillcrest. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent to Mom's House, www.momshouse.org.
