Frances Marie Good Rohrbaugh

Frances Marie Good Rohrbaugh, 93, of Maurertown, VA, passed away peacefully Saturday, September 17, 2016 at her home on Back Road.

Her family will host a Memorial Service on Thursday, September 22, 2016 at 3 p.m. at Dellinger Funeral Home in Woodstock, VA.

Born October 30, 1922 in Washington D.C., Fran was a daughter of the late Franklin E. Good and Florence Fleming Good, also formerly of Maurertown.

She graduated from the Washington School for Secretaries, met her husband, the late Joseph W. (Woody) Rohrbaugh at Ft. Belvoir during World War II, and spent much of her adult life in Bucks County, PA while working as an administrative secretary for the president of the Educational Testing Service in Princeton, NJ.

In 1976 Fran and Woody retired to her ancestral home in Maurertown, where they ran a bed and breakfast in the 1980s and happily spent the remainder of their lives.

Fran was an accomplished potter and did volunteer work with the Woodstock Museum, Woodstock Library and Shenandoah Memorial Hospital well into this century.

The life of any party, she was a lively, caring neighbor, an avid bridge player, and a purveyor of irreverent jokes until the end.

Fran’s husband, Woody (in 2010) and a younger sister, Betty Jean Good Thomas (in 1981), preceded her in death.

Survivors include two sons and daughters-in-law, Michael Joseph Rohrbaugh and Lucy Godfrey Banks of Maurertown and Falls Church, VA, and John Franklin Rorhbaugh and Virginia Ann Rohrbaugh of Shady Side, MD; and four grandchildren, Marie Ann Carbone, William Berlyn Rohrbaugh, Michael Craig Kaplan and Melanie Elisabeth McCarville.

Fran’s family and friends considered her a force of nature. We will miss her enormously.

In lieu of flowers, please make memorial contributions to the Woodstock Museum, P.O. Box 741, Woodstock, VA 22664.

One Condolence to Frances Marie Good Rohrbaugh

  1. Patrisia Magallon says:

    May fond memories of your loved one bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before she passed away. My hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. God has promised us that we will soon be reunited with our loved ones. “There is going to be a resurrection,” the Bible confirms at Acts 24:15. “Do not be amazed at this,” Jesus assures us, “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29)
