    Debbie lived next door to Frankie’s mom on south Broadway when they first came to providence. She stayed with Frances until we could get home when Frances got sick. I think we were on vacation out of town. She was so sweet snd would take Frances soup snd stuff. She later moved just up the street from us on Barbour st and we would see her in passing. A very sweet compassionate lady. She will be missed. My heart goes out to the family. Did not realize Hannah was her grand daughter.
