Obituary

Beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend passed away unexpected at her home on Sunday, July 14, 2019. Named after her grandmother, Frances Colleen Lepeak was born on August 20, 1951, in Saginaw, Michigan, to the late Leonard J. and JoAnn J. (Premo) Lepeak. She married Edward W. Colpean on August 28, 1971, at the rose garden in Saginaw. In her younger years, Fran, worked as a family planner with the Saginaw County Health Department. She enjoyed gardening, cooking, and baking. Music was a major part of Fran’s life. She loved to listen to various artists throughout the years, but her all-time favorite were The Beatles. Fran was a very loving person and a natural helper, if family or friends had a problem, she was their go to person. She will forever be remembered for being a free spirit, an unyielding freethinker, and for all the love she had for both family and friends.
