She attended school in Cleveland until grade 11 then quit school to take care of her Mother who had been severely burned by a kerosene lamp. During this time she assumed all of her mother's household chores & cooking. She worked as a waitress & telephone operator for a year after caring for her Mother. When harvest time came her uncle brought his hired man to help with the grain crop at which time Frances meet the love of her life Leonard Golombeski. They were married at the Cleveland Methodist Church on November 25, 1952, snow that day turned into a blizzard by afternoon so the reception & dance had to be cancelled.

Frances & Leonard lived in Cleveland for 4 years, before moving to Morristown in 1956 locating on a farm just south of town. Over the 35 years they were on the farm they raised a daughter & five boys. During this time Frances worked as a wife, housekeeper, farm hand and mother.

After a year she got a job at Brown Printing in Waseca working nights for 10 years.

She demonstrated her love to care for people by opening their home to many young adults some spending the summer others for multiple years, hosting after prom breakfasts for several high school classes & their dates and on holidays her table was always full with family & anyone that did not have a place to go.   As her children grew up she babysat for all that needed a Grandma to watch over them.

In early 1990's they moved into Morristown where she continued to care for Leonard. Because he was wheelchair bound family, friends & neighbors would stop in many mornings to have breakfast and/or coffee and visit; this continued until Leonard's passing in Sept. 1993.

Memories

I have such fond memories of being out at the farm. My 3 older sisters and I would spend time in the summer with the Golombeski family. We had such fun feeding the kitty's in the barn with fresh milk to chasing around the chickens that just got their head cut off. The whole family took us in and treated us just like one of their own. Theresa and the "BOYS" were so good to us all. Francie helped to raise such a great family and she was an extended part of our family as well. Theresa kept us all up to date with everyone in her Christmas cards. Please know that we, Lisa, Kim, Ann, and myself think about the Golombeski family often.

Memories

Sympathy to the family. We had the pleasure of getting to know this wonderful lady, she was such a joy to be around...always wanting a hug, or a smile. If she didn't get one she'd ask if our smile or hug was broke down. She would sing & clap to the radio & get everyone in a good mood. She would say " Hey, good looking" to get our attention. How she loved to sing " You are my Sunshine, my only Sunshine." In the beginning she would love to help us fold the towels or clean off the tables, she told us " I'm retired not broken down yet." We all got so attached to her, to some of us she was like a Mom & to others she was a Grandma. But no matter what we each called her, she was one of the sweetest, caring, kind & totally loveable ladies of all time. Theresa if you get lonely you can always come to visit or stay over we'll get you a room. You got to be part of the family here & we all love you too.

Memories

Deepest Sympathy to the whole family. I remember how Francie always had the bestest baked goods (cinnamon rolls were my favorite on Saturday mornings) whenever we'd get to come over. I remember her bringing lunch to the field when the neighbors would do harvest together, sometimes even pie. Halloween those yummie popcorn balls & the decorations on her kitchen wall. How them clothes lines were always full of laundry. My folks used to say that she'd pull on jeans & a flannel shirt to help with chores & milking. My Mom said many a time Francie had wings then as she was on the go from morning till night taking care of all those kids, that big garden, that had the good strawberries. How we'd go sledding on those big hills & the time I got soaking wet when the hill was really a hangover drift, by the time we got to the house I was pretty damn cold. Francie gave me dry clothes and a blanket then turned on the oven & opened the oven door so I would warm up on a chair in front of it with a blanket around me. She was a wonderful lady had a heart of gold. That picture on here shows that warm smile she always had for us. I remember them hugs. God Bless this special lady she is sure the heck in heaven now using them wings.
