LT. COLONEL
FRANCES CATHERINE MALONE, USAF

We wish to celebrate the life of our dear sister, aunt, great aunt, and great, great aunt, Lt. Colonel Frances Catherine Malone, USAF (retired).
Frances spent the bulk of her life administering to the health needs of Air Force members, and worked many bases over the World, throughout her career. Frances was born in 1926 to Gregory and Mary (Jackson) Malone, and she grew up in McCloud, CA, right by Mt. Shasta. She graduated from Providence School of Nursing in Oakland, CA, and joined the service not too long after that. Frances was very generous and was committed to funding education and providing other financial support for her extended family.
After resettling to Clark County, WA, to be near family, and to help take care of her aging parents, Frances retired to Vancouver where she lived and breathed the teaching of Christ that she wove into the very fabric of her life. She was an active member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Camas, WA, and church was tremendously important to Frances. Also of some importance to Frances are The Portland Tail Blazers, and you would often find her in front of the TV rooting for the home team and the myriad of players that came and went over the years. Frances was one of nine children, six girls and three boys, and had 33 nieces and nephews.
Frances is survived by one sister, Arlene (Malone) Camacho; and sister-in-laws, Ailis Malone and Mary Malone; and most of her nieces and nephews.
She will be dearly missed though she is now at home with her family and her Father in Heaven; rest peacefully Frances.
There will be a service on Jan. 11, for Frances at Holy Redeemer Catholic Parish, 17010 NE 9th Street, Vancouver, WA. 98684. Rosary starts at 11:30 a.m. and the service begins at noon.
