Francine Fearnbach of Pennington dies at 71

Francine Suro Fearnbach of Pennington passed away at the age of 71 on March 11 with her family by her side. She was born December 28, 1951, in Trenton and spent most of her life in Pennington. She graduated from Hopewell Valley Central High School in 1970 and had an extensive career in banking.

She is remembered for always taking care of others before herself and making sure no one in her family missed out on an experience or opportunity. She worked tirelessly for her family and still made it to every rehearsal, sporting event, and family meal, even if she was always a little late. She is loved for her sense of humor, silly moments, and endless stories. Her smile was contagious and made all feel welcome. Her favorite things were pizza night on Fridays, buying ingredients for baked goods that she never baked, shopping on Amazon, getting her nails done, going to see fireworks, and cheering on her grandson no matter what he did.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Edna (Merritt) Suro and Peter Suro, her brothers, Bobby Suro and Peter Suro, Jr, and her husband Wayne Fearnbach.

She is survived by her children, Michele Hunt (Dave), Jason Hiner, Nicole Viverito (Matt), and Kimberly Fearnbach, her grandson, DJ Hunt, her sister, Geri Stover (Bob), her brother, Tom Suro (Linda), and her extended family.

Visitation with the family will take place Thursday, March 16 from 5 to 7 p.m. and Friday, March 17 from 10 to 11 a.m. at Wilson Apple Funeral Home in Pennington. A memorial service will be held on Friday, March 17 at 11 a.m. at the Wilson Apple Funeral Home. The burial will take place at the convenience of the family at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Trenton.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the American Cancer Society, or a charity of your choice in her name.
