Ida Francis Memorial Services Fund

Our beloved matriarch, Ida H. Francis, departed this world on Monday, October 2, 2017.   She was surrounded by family in her final days and hours.  Ida was 98 years old, a widow, a mother of 9 children, a grandmother to 23 grandchildren, a great grandmother 49 great grandchildren, and a great great grandmother to 21 great great grandchildren. 

The family appreciates everyone's prayers and words of comfort.  Family and friends have asked how to contribute to the services. We have created this page to make it convenient to give & receive contributions.  There will also be family meetings at 6 PM on Wednesday and Thursday this week at the Chinle Chapter House if folks prefer to make contributions in person.

Memorial services will be held at 1 PM on Friday, October 6, 2017 at the the Potter's House Chinle Christian Center.  The burial will take place at the Chinle Community Cemetery after the service.  And a reception will follow at the Catholic Hall.

Flowers can be sent to Summit Funeral Home 346a Hwy 264, P.O. Box 500, St. Michaels, AZ 86511, [phone redacted].

Contributions and final payment of expenses will be handled by Ida's grandson, Edward Todd Francis.
