Pauline Carol Francis


Pauline, 84, of Sun City, AZ passed away peacefully on January 2, 2020. Born January 15, 1935 in Harrisburg, PA, to Herman and Clara Reed, she is predeceased by the love of her life, Denver L. Francis in 1999, after 45 years of marriage, along with 6 of her siblings. Her surviving sibling is her cherished brother, Floyd Reed, Sr.

Pauline’s imagination and talent led her to become a skilled artist. It was the love of children and bringing joy to others that led her to a nearly 30 year career as a professional clown. It was truly her passion! She also enjoyed documenting her love for her family through genealogy and scrapbooking.

Surviving family members remaining are her daughters, Laura Taylor (Scott) and Janyce Klyczek (Jeff) along with grandchildren Hank Maya, Ryan Maya, Justin Klyczek and Kendall Klyczek plus one great-granddaughter, Charlie Maya.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to Hospice of the Valley and Alzheimer Association. Our deepest gratitude to Beverly Assisted Living and Hospice of the Valley for their compassion to the end. Memorial services to be held at a later date through Heritage Funeral Chapel in Glendale.
