On November 27, 2020, the day after Thanksgiving, my mother, Fran Kapp, died of Covid-19 after spending 17 days in the hospital. Despite knowing how much she was loved and how much she loved us, our hearts will always be broken because we could not be with her when she died. Fran was a loving and devoted mother who made her kids and her family the center of her life. She was a baseball fan, a love she inherited from her dad, and raised her kids to be life-long Cubs fans. She ran her own photography studio until she retired, and was actively involved in organizations that that seek to bring peace, reconciliation and understanding in communities around the world. he always made everyone around her feel special and loved. We miss you and love you mom!
