Born Frances Juanita Malcolm on May 16, 1927, to parents Ada and James, she and her three siblings, Wanda, James Jr. and Eleanor, grew up on a small farm in Flat Rock, Illinois.  The family later moved to Lawrenceville, Illinois where Frances attended high school and landed her first job in a candy factory.  In time she found a better paying job as a waitress at a local restaurant; it is here that she met the love of her life, Albert Sabin.   On Valentine’s Day 1945 Albert and Frances married in Elkton, Maryland.  The couple settled in the Philadelphia area and had two daughters, Carol and Deborah.  In 1973, the couple moved to Cherry Hill where Frances started her own Craft Business.  She sewed and created soft animal toys.  In 2007, Frances devoted herself to caring for her Husband after health complications required him to stay in a nursing home.  After Albert’s death, Frances lived independently for two years until her own health complications required nursing home care.  She spent the last year in St. Mary’s Center in Cherry Hill, NJ, where she was able to easily make friends and became a favorite of the staff.  Frances is survived by her Daughters Carol Fowler (Edward) and Deborah Smith, two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.  Services are private; Frances will be laid to rest with her Husband at the Ivy Hill Cemetery, Philadelphia, PA.  Funeral Arrangements are under the direction of the Bradley & Stow Funeral Home, Medford, NJ.
