December 19, 1929 - July 12, 2017
Frances Evelyn Palmieri went home to be with Jesus Wednesday, July 12, 2017. She passed away in her beloved cottage in Medford, Oregon.
Born in Los Angeles, California, December 19, 1929, she was primarily raised on a walnut ranch in Visalia, Calif. along with her five brothers. She returned to Los Angeles in her late teens and eventually worked for Western Freight Company. On January 3, 1959 she married the love of her life, Richard Palmieri. She helped him for many years run his business, Godeau and Martinoni Funeral Home. He preceded her in death July 24, 2000.
Frances was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She was a devoted volunteer working for over 25 years, primarily at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center in various departments. Her red hair, bright smile, and sparkling personality won many hearts, and she sought to share the love of Christ at every turn.
She is survived by her daughters, Suzanne Kaimie (Charles), Medford, Ore. and Anna Michelle Griffith (Marc), Somis, Calif.; four grandchildren, Richard Kaimie (Chandler), Portland, Ore. and Connor, Victoria, and Camryn Griffith, Somis, Calif.
The family will hold a private service and then memorial honoring her life in September. Memorial donations should be made to First Church of the Nazarene, 1974 East McAndrews Rd, Medford, OR. Memory Gardens Mortuary will handle all arrangements.
