Frances Alvarado was born in Prescott Arizona on May 11, 1927 and Died November 25, 2012 surrounded by her family and friends in her own home in Dripping Springs Arizona.

She graduated from Prescott High School in 1945.She was a mother of six Felix, Ruth, Frank, Mark, Greg and Peter (passed away in Aug of 2011). She had 21 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.

She was married to Bartolo Alvarado on Dec. 24 1952 in Las Vegas, Nevada. She moved from Prescott Arizona to Christmas Arizona in July 1954 with two children, a boy and a girl, here she learned to make the most of what they had because this was no large city they moved to; it was a mining town in the middle of nowhere.

She learned to cook and to sew, she read books, learned to garden and raised a family. She mended bruises, cuts, scratches and helped with homework. She mended broken hearts and gave inspiration to all those who knew her. She did it all and never complained of what she could have been.

She learned to love her surroundings and made many friends. Her biggest pastime was to watch her Raiders play football.

We will all miss you Mother, you will live on in the hearts of those who loved you.
