Frances Lucia Obituary

Frances Barbara (Muzzi) Lucia, affectionately known as Chickie, passed away on January 30, 2024, at the age of 91 in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Born on April 27, 1932, in Long Branch, New Jersey, she was a warm, funny, and stubborn individual who always put others before herself.

Frances was a devoted mother, wife, daughter, and sister. Her selflessness and generosity were unparalleled, and she constantly prioritized the needs of her loved ones. She will be deeply missed by her daughter, Helen Lucia, her grandson Matthew Dorey, her granddaughter Christina Dorey-Ciceron, her great-grandchildren Cassidy and Carter Ciceron, and Emma Dorey, as well as her extended family and friends.

She graduated from Long Branch High School and went on to work as a secretary at Holy Trinity Church for 10 years. Additionally, she served as a school crossing guard in Long Branch for a decade. Her dedication and hard work left a lasting impact on those she encountered throughout her career.

Outside of her professional life, Frances found joy in various hobbies such as reading, crocheting, and cooking. These activities allowed her to express her creativity and passion for learning.
