Frances Mediate, 80, beloved mother of Sarah Melia, and grandmother of Thomas, Margaret and Gregory Kimball, peacefully passed away Monday, January 15, 2018. Born in Stamford May 30, 1937, she was the daughter of the late Domenick and Nellie (Angotto) Mediate of Riverside. A lifelong resident of Connecticut, Frances spent her early years in Stamford and Greenwich, with the last seven years in Middletown. She had a love for life, the Lord Jesus and music. Not a day went by that she didn’t sing. Frances had a persistent persevering spirit, a wonderful sense of humor, a grateful compassionate heart and a love of children. We will miss her greatly, and are grateful to know her spirit shines with us each day.
