Obituary for Denise Francis

Denise Francis was born February 15, 1968 in Newark, NJ to the late James Allen Francis and Roberta Francis.

Denise graduated with honors, obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree followed by her Master’s in Public Administration from Kean University in 2011.

Denise was a devoted mother of three to Lorrie D. Francis, Chauncey Williams Traore and Camilyah Francis, and many others who considered her a second mom. She was mother-in-law to Issaka Traore; and grandmother to Sanyah Morgan, Amiyah Williams, Lewis Gilmore, Yazid Traore, Abdul Traore, Faycal Traore and Layla Traore.

Denise worked at Kean University in the Early Childhood Department for 12 years where she advised and assisted students. She was a great asset to her department.

Denise’s devotion, determination, eagerness and willingness aided her in excelling in her accomplishments. She poured her heart into everything she did, especially her children with advising them about life.

Denise was loving and phenomenal mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, sister and friend. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends on the weekend, and was always the life of the party. She was able to reach out to many people with her vibrant personality. She was a great confidant and never passed judgment on anyone. She looked at life from all aspects. Denise will be greatly missed.

Denise is survived by: three sisters, Connie Francis, Mary Francis and Darlean Dozier; three brothers, James Francis, Jermaine Francis and Andre Francis; and a host of other relatives and friends. She is preceded in death by her mother Roberta Francis, father James Allen Francis, sisters Patricia Malachi and Lorrie Francis, and one brother Jeffery Ledbetter.
