Sarah "Sally" Eleanor Francis, née Abrahams
Sunrise April 26, 1944
Sunset February 17, 2018
Sarah was born in Kingston, Jamaica, West Indies, to Horace and Christobelle Abrahams, nee Fitz Ritson. At the age of 8, Sarah and her family emigrated to Queens, New York, where she would later graduate from New York City College and become a Dental Hygienist in June 1964.
In 1971, she married the love of her life, Carlton Francis, with whom she shared 47 beautiful years. The couple departed Queens and relocated to Miami, then Miramar, before settling down in Pembroke Pines, Florida, in 1980. At that time, Sarah decided to continue her education and went on to graduate from Miami-Dade College as a Registered Nurse in December 1982. Before her retirement in 2011, Sarah worked at Mount Sinai Hospital in Miami for 18 years.
In her spare time, she enjoyed spending time with family and friends, as well as traveling, reading, shopping, roller-skating, playing tennis and dancing. She also was very fond of parakeets.
She was a beautiful person inside and out. Sarah always expressed kindness to others. She will be sorely missed but never forgotten by her family and friends. Sarah will be remembered today, tomorrow and forevermore in our hearts. We shall be reunited again one day.
Survived by her beloved husband of 47 years, Carlton Francis; loving son, Steve Francis and daughter in-law Mary Francis; two adored grandchildren, Taliyah and Sean Francis; dear sister, Barbara "Betty" Wilkes brother, William "Trevor" Abrahams and countless nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Frank Abrahams.
