Frances Goldfarb   I am a Veteran.
December 18, 1935  -  July 12, 2017


Frances Elaine Goldfarb, 81, of Clovis, New Mexico, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on July 12, 2017. Frances was born in Xenia, Ohio to Eileen and Pearle Compton on December 18, 1935. While serving in the United States Air Force, she met and married Eugene Goldfarb on August 31, 1956 in Raton, NM. Frances had many hobbies and interests but she mainly enjoyed being with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Frances graduated from Eastern New Mexico University in May 1977 with an Associates Degree in Science and worked as a Juvenile Probation Officer for fourteen years. Frances, referred to lovingly as ''Bobo'' by her grandchildren and family, was known to all as a great storyteller and the family historian. She had a dry, yet warmhearted sense of humor and a sharp wit. She was always able to ''tell it like it is'' without you realizing you were just put in your place! She touched and influenced the lives of all she met, including those she supervised as a Juvenile Probation Officer.

Frances is preceded in death by her parents Eileen and Pearle Compton, sister Becky Allender, brother James Compton, and daughter–in-law Joyce Goldfarb. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Eugene Goldfarb; her sons Joseph, Jeffrey and wife Cindy, John and wife Bridget; daughter Elaine Morrow; brother Stephen Compton and wife Sharon; sisters Pat Stormont and husband Dick, Angela Kinnaman and husband Jim, Jeanne Adlesburger and husband Don; grandchildren Michael, Brian, Brant, Danae, Jennifer, Mark, Lauren and Kyle; great grandchildren Ashton, Alexander, Preston and Bella, numerous nieces and nephews and many friends including best friend, Lavon Bennett of Ohio.

The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the doctors and staff at Presbyterian Plains Regional Medical Center Hospice and Cancer Center.

A memorial service is scheduled for 10:30am on Thursday, August 3, 2017 at Steed-Todd Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will take place at 10:30am on Friday, August 4, 2017 at the Santa Fe National Cemetery in Santa Fe, NM.
