Frances Morally   "Babe"

Farmington:  Monday, Aug 31, 2020, Babe Morally past due to complications of the liver.  Babe is survived by her two sisters, Marlene Clark & Pat Cuthbert; her daughters Christine Dye, April Bareno, Lesly Armitage Gotowt and Mary Landero Armitage; her son, Pete Armitage and grandchildren, Jason Salinas, Ashley Marini and Eric Patterson. Predeceased by her son, Steve Armitage.

Babe Morally was born in McKeesport Pennsylvania on Dec 12th 1938 to Pete Morally and Frances Capo. She was a devoted mother and grandmother. She enjoyed decorating and shopping for anything black & white or animal print. You never saw her without an animal print on.  Also loved Mickey & Minnie Mouse. Her passion was to create and decorate, cultivated by years in retail, owning her own shop on Main St in Canandaigua NY (This N That Boutique) then moved on to her favorite job with TJMAXX until March 2020, where she headed up the jewelry counter for 14 years. Her joy was found by helping people find the right jewelry for the right occasion. This included herself and all of her family.  In her free time she loved putting together gifts, flower arrangements and wreaths just to give them away and found her joy by watching their reactions, even up to the day before her passing.

Babe, had many Christian values that she tried to hold true to throughout her life. She was involved in many church activities and loved including her grandson, Eric. Nana, as we called her, was able to have her own, individual relationship with each one of us.

Babe, you will remember her as being, funny, private, headstrong, full of vigor, opinions, how to suggestions, even on how to cook her favorite food, French Fries, they had to be well done or they were sent back.

Nana, will be dearly missed and in our hearts forever.
