Frances W Ives of Dover, Delaware passed away on October 26th, 2020 at 91 years of age, after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease.

She is survived by her loving husband Robert, children Catherine (Jake), Roberta, Jay, and Patrick, grandchildren Nicole, Jessee, Shannon, Tyler, Brandon, Robbie, Dylan, and Matthew, and great grandchildren Kaiden, Nolan, McKenna, Emma, Jaxon, and Weston.

Frances was born on April 22nd, 1929 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Robert and Frances were married in April, 1956 and went on to have four beautiful children. The family started their international adventures, which took them around the world. Germany, Italy, Scotland, France, and Canada were all home before settling at the beloved "Beach House" in Lewes, Delaware. Their loving home and environment created beautiful memories that will be forever cherished by all.

Family was everything to Frances. She selflessly dedicated herself to her husband, children, and grandchildren. She made all of our lives better just by being in it.

In lieu of flowers, the family would like to request donations to be made to the Alzheimer's Society.

Funeral Mass to be held Thursday, October 29, 2020, 10:00 a.m. at Holy Cross Church in Dover. Interment to follow at Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Millsboro at 1:00 p.m.

Aunt Franny was one of my BFF's. Loved visiting her when she lived in Lewes. Going out shopping for the day, wondering whether to have lunch or a Starbucks caramel frappuccino with pound cake, and you can guess what we had. Then off to the grocery store to pick up something for me to cook for dinner. We'd get home and Bob was always ready to have a search party come looking for us since we'd leave around 10 am and return close to 5:30 pm. Such a fun and loving person to be around. We were all blessed to have known her. I am sure she is now with my Mom, her sister Lydia and her Mom, my Grandmother Emma. RIP and love always. Your niece Pat.
