Frances “Fran” Mary Larochelle went home to be with the Lord on July 27, 2017. Fran was born in Middletown, New York to Stanley and Ina Lewis on September 15, 1935 and spent the last 44 years making Ocala her home. Fran worked at the Marion County Tax Collectors Office in 1998 where she worked until her retirement at the age of 63. Fran has traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico with her husband Emile and her cats. While at home she enjoyed growing flowers and herbs, constructing buildings and painting, dancing, reading, but most of all spending time with her family and friends. Fran is recently preceded in death by her son Richard Roorda who passed away last month. She is survived by her husband Emile; her children John (Cindy) Roorda, Stephen Roorda, Karen (Tony) Ortiz, and James Boyce; 3 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. A celebration of life will be held at Christ’s Church of Marion County on Sunday, August 6th at 3pm.
