Frances Dora Kochberg


In loving memory of the glorious 93 years of Fran Kochberg. Devoted wife of 73 years to her adoring and cherished husband, Harold. Dearest daughter of the late Issie & Gertie Samet. Loving sister to the late Sam Samet. Devoted sister-in-law to Toby Samet and to the late Rita & Harry Dordick, Esther & Harry Goodman, Marvin & Esther Kochberg. Devoted mother and mother-in-law to Marshall & Resa Kochberg, Ian & Arlene Kochberg, David Kochberg & Linda Prussick. Beloved grandma/bubbie to Jaimie & Gavin Ziv, Kailee & Shawn Mecklinger, Toni & Jayme Frankfort, Ira & Michelle Kochberg, Eric & Yana Kochberg. Incredible great-grandma/bubbie to Emily, Brooke, Sophie, Dylan, Isabella, Corey, Nathan, Liam, Ellie, Kai, and Evie.


The absolute epitome of a “balabusta”, and the embodiment of the “Yiddishe Mama”, Fran was a committed wife, a caring mother, a loving bubbie/grandma and an unfailing friend. She always thought of, and cared for, others before herself. Her passing leaves a tremendous void that can never be filled.

Memorial donations may be made to Hill House Hospice


Fran, Mom, Grandma, Bubbie …

We love you forever.

We will miss you always.
