Fran G. Hyatt died on September 8, 2018 at her home in Annapolis, MD. Fran was born in Baltimore on February 12, 1931 to Hannah and Joseph Golombek, who had immigrated from Palestine (now Israel) and Poland. Fran excelled in school and graduated high school at the age of 16. She enrolled in the University of Baltimore where she met the love of her life, Louis Hyatt. They were married on August 6, 1950. Fran was a homemaker when her children were young. She then entered the workforce part-time in various office jobs and ultimately worked for JC Penney and retired after 23 years.
Fran had an incredible ability to write humorous and sentimental poetry for family and friends. She often wrote poems for birthdays and other special occasions. Over the years, Fran wrote many letters to the editor in The Capital Newspaper, causing her family to open the daily newspaper cautiously. Mah Jong was a favorite past time for Fran. She enjoyed the game and the friendships that she developed while playing. Fran was a regular at the Annapolis Mall for Saturday lunches with her group of “golden girls”, a close group of women whose friendship spanned over 60 years. Fran was also fond of scrabble, loved shopping, jewelry, cats and dogs.
Fran is survived by her devoted and loving husband of 68 years, Louis Hyatt, a daughter Jo Ann Hyatt Modlin (Lyle) and a son Alan Hyatt (Sharon). Six grandchildren, Amy Modlin (Matthew Levitsky), Adam Modlin, Sara Modlin, Melissa Hyatt, Steven Hyatt and Laura Hyatt Paulson (Eric).
Sincere appreciation is expressed to the compassionate and supportive care provided by Dr. Eric Bush and Kristina Marquez of Hospice of the Chesapeake.
