Frances Fallstrom, of Issaquah, peacefully passed away at Lakeside Adult Family Home in Lake Stevens on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013, with her family at her side. She was 88 years old.

Frances was born Aug. 4, 1924, in Elma, the daughter of Arthur and Effie Callow.

Frances was a career bookkeeper and worked for many employers during her working years, finally retiring in 2000 from the city of Issaquah. Along the way, she made many friends and built lifelong ties.

She was preceded in death by her husband George in 2001 and her two sisters Ruth and Miriam.

She will be remembered for her great smile, her accepting nature, being a great mother and for her subtle streak of stubbornness, especially in her later years.

Survivors include sons Jon (Keri), of Issaquah, Robert (Constance), of Yakima, and Eric (Barbara), of Lake Stevens; and five grandchildren.

A celebration of Frances’ life will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013, at Flintoft’s Issaquah Funeral Home, 540 E. Sunset Way. A reception will follow.

The family suggests remembrances to Medic One, FISH (Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery), Issaquah Valley Senior Center or a charity of your choice.

Friends are invited to share memories and sign the family’s online guest book at

Arrangements are by Flintoft’s Funeral Home and Crematory.

    My love and prayers to Frannies family. I had the pleasure of having worked with Frannie and her boys were her life. She was always sharing stories about them with me always with that twinkle in her eye as she spoke of them. She was truly a wonderful person and a joy to all of us fortunate enough to have had her a part of our life. No doubt the matriarch of the family –

    Fortunately I have Frannies son Jon as my brother in law now, and all I can say is Frannie you were right about your “Jonnie” he is all you said he is, and I am so thankful to have him in my family now. Rest now my dear lady, your work here has been done.
    Love you – Annie
