Frances Maley

October 23, 1939 — February 27, 2020

On Thursday, February 27, 2020, Frances Maley, loving wife and mother of six children, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 80, following a short illness at the University of Kansas Medical Center.

Fran was born on October 23, 1939, in Neodesha, Kansas, to Dollie A and Paul W Robson. She attended school in Neodesha prior to marrying Kenneth M. Maley who was serving in the United States Navy. They were married for 46 years and raised six children: Rebecca May, James Michael, Tina Marie, Lenore Maxine, Gale Marian and Dale Marion.

Fran enjoyed many activities but truly enjoyed her family, friends, and she loved driving. She enjoyed listening to music by Elvis and feeding the wild birds wherever she lived, as that was a fond memory of her Grandmother Robson.

Fran was preceded in death by her mother and father, Dollie A and Paul W Robson, her husband Kenneth and two great grandchildren. Fran is survived by her six children, 29 grandchildren, and 32 great grandchildren, her brothers Ted Robson, Pauleon Robson, Ray Robson and sister Margie Helmer.
