It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Frances Lucille DeLuca (Logsdon). Fran was a lifelong resident of the Akron area, the mother to 7 children, grandmother of 21 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Fran was married to Lawrence J.

For the first 20 years of her married life, Fran was a homemaker at the family home in Coventry Township. In the late 1970’s, Fran started a professional career with the Akron Public Schools working with special needs students. In the early 1990’s, Fran began a second career working as the Activities Coordinator for the Sisters of Charity retirement home Mount Augustine retiring from that position in 2010. Fran was a lifelong Catholic and along with her husband and children, a long-time member of Saint Francis De Sales Parish. Fran will be remembered in the hearts of her family and friends for her love of music and dancing, her fidelity to anyone in need and the energy and enthusiasm she devoted to her family and friends.
