Frances Oliverio Phares of Clarksburg died on July 24, 2020 at the age of 74 after a long battle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), which is a very rare variant of Parkinson’s disease for which there is no cure.

 

She was born on October 4, 1945, the daughter of the late Frank A. and Antoinette Lepera Oliverio.

 

Fran was married to Daniel D Phares of Clarksburg, her husband of 51 years who survives her. Together they had three children, Beth Fitch (David), Lisa Halterman (John) and Daniel F. Phares (Amanda).

Fran held a BS degree in medical technology and chemistry and an MT Registry from the American Society of Clinical Pathologists. After working as a medical technologist for one year at the former St. Mary’s Hospital in Clarksburg, WV Fran left the profession in 1970 to become the manager of Oliverio’s Cash and Carry, Inc. This store was a family owned business started by her parents in 1925. Thestore was her life and she worked there until her health incapacitated her. She will be remembered as the sweet, loving person who always assisted those in need.

Because of the coronavirus outbreak, there will be no public viewing. A private Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. Interment will be at Holy Cross Cemetery in Clarksburg.

 

The entire Phares family wants to express their sincere love and appreciation to Robin Gonzalez, Connie Swiger, and Janet Wentz for the professional care they extended to Frances. They were angels doing God’s work.
