Eva Frances "Fran" Zaner, 84, of Kansas City, MO passed peacefully unto the Lord on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at Stonecrest Assisted Living. The Rosary will be recited at 10am Saturday, September 16, 2017 with visitation to follow and Mass of Christian Burial beginning at 11:30am at St. Therese Catholic Church, 7207 NW HWY 9, Parkville, MO. Burial to follow in Resurrection North Cemetery.

Fran was born January 19, 1933 in Dawn, MO to James and Sadie (Roath) Morgan. She was the second of three daughters. Following her graduation from Dawn High School in 1950, Fran chose a nursing career and obtained an associate degree in nursing from St. Margaret's School of Nursing in Kansas City, KS. She worked as a pediatric nurse for approximately 8 years until choosing to be a "stay at home mother" and homemaker. During that time, she volunteered as a school health nurse, homeroom- mother and member of the Ladies Axillary all of St. Therese Parish and School. She later practiced community health nursing with the Platte County Health Department until her retirement in the 1990's. She was proud of her role as a nurse but more importantly, her roles as a mother and grandmother.

Fran enjoyed baking, watching her "soaps," birthday club dinners, as well as cheering on the Royals and the Chiefs. Fran was also a long time parishioner of St. Therese Parish in Parkville, MO.

Fran is preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Mary Kille and her loving husband of 43 years, Don Zaner. She is survived by her sister, Dee Breit of Florida; son Dan Zaner (Teresa); daughter, Gina Semin all of Kansas City, MO and son, Mark Zaner (Lisa) of Jefferson City, MO; grandchildren, Danielle Ehlers, Bryce Zaner, Frank Semin, Jacob Semin, Paul Semin and Natalie Elrod. She is also survived by several brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and friends. Fran will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
