Frances Louise Marinac Sayer Obituary

Frances Louise Marinac Sayer was born in Mackay, Idaho, on May 2, 1926, to Anna and Mike Marinac, fondly known to the grandkids as Baba and Deda. She was the first of five children. She grew up and lived in Mackay for most of her childhood and adult life.

Frances met the love of her life, Nolan Sayer. Frances and Nolan had three children, Greg, Bill and Cindy.
Frances was always known for her excellent cooking skills.
Frances was overjoyed when her only grandchild, Michael Peter, was born to Cindy and Pete Christenson. Michael took time to see his grandma when she was ill, and she loved him greatly in return.
In the past few years, Frances could be found in her big chair with her rosary in her hand either beginning or ending her prayers.
Frances joined our Lord on Dec. 9, 2010. Her sons, Bill and Greg, made sure she was able to spend her final days in the home where she had always lived.
Frances lived a simple life, totally devoted to her family. She made friends for life, and she cherished those close to her. She was loved by so many and she will be missed dearly.
Frances is survived by her three children, Greg Sayer, Bill Sayer and Cindy (Pete) Christenson; grandson, Michael Christenson; brother, Jack (Mag) Marinac and family; nephews, Steve (Helen) Marinac and Kobe; niece, Andrea Marinac; and many family members of the Sayer and Whitworth families. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Nolan; brothers, Martin and Mike; and sister, Mande.
The family would like to thank Elvina Reiman, Terrie Bone and the wonderful caregivers from Lost Rivers Hospice.
A funeral Mass will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 15, at St. Barbara's Catholic Church in Mackay. A rosary service will be at 7 p.m. today, Dec. 14, at St. Barbara's. Arrangements are under the direction of Lost River Funeral Chapel.
