Shepardson, Frances R. Beloved mother, sister, grandmother, and friend passed away October 21, 2019. She is survived by her daughters, Tracey Shepardson (Heidi) and Courtney Bacon (Jordan), her son, Bill Shepardson (Emily), her sister Harriett Teixeira (Larry), and her grandchildren Victor, Treat, Richard, and Annabelle. Born in 1939 to Ada and Frank Riley, Fran grew up in Greenbelt, MD. She was a resident of Bloomington and Edina for the last 25 years, where she pursued a rewarding career in public affairs which allowed her to connect and contribute to the community. Fran traveled all over the world and loved cooking for her family of friends. In retirement, she continued to serve the community as a volunteer, most notably as a kindergarten reading buddy at Valley View Elementary School, Oasis for Youth, and the Book'em used book sale. Her family and friends grieve the loss of Fran, but know how lucky we were to have had her in our lives. We will miss her. There will be a visitation with family Monday, October 28 at 10 AM at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Minneapolis with a mass to follow at 11 AM. In lieu of flowers, her family asks that donations be made in her name to a charity of your choice, or to one of the causes she supported: Fraser, Oasis for Youth, or St. Joan of Arc Outreach Fund.
