On Tuesday, May 16, 2023, Frances Kilduff Justice passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family. She was born March 10, 1928, in Ellicott City, Maryland. She spent the majority of her youth in Harford County, Md with her parents and siblings. She was the 5th child of 10 children. She attended St. Stephen of Bradshaw, Catholic school, and graduated from a Baltimore City secretarial and trade school, where she met the love of her life. In 1947, she was married to John Taylor Justice, and they eventually moved to Howard County in 1959, where they raised their family for the next 62 years. She was a dedicated employee of the Howard County Board of Education for 30 years, and most notably, Fran was a deeply spiritual woman who touched the lives of so many. As witnessed through her devotion to her family, neighbors, friends, and the St. Louis Catholic Parish community, she was the epitome of grace, love, compassion, and selfless service. She was one of the founding members of her church’s Divine Mercy Prayer Group, the Bereavement Committee, and the Mary’s Friends. She volunteered on the Alter Guild and for every funeral luncheon and Clarksville Picnic at St. Louis Church from 1960-2020, and she was involved with the Black-Eyed Susan Majorette and Drum Corp and the Atholton Swim club.
Fran is survived by her 3 daughters, Sharon (Justice) Morgan (Don Spicer), Marcy (Justice) Kane (Bob Kane) and Linda (Justice) Teodosio (Fred Teodosio), six beloved grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband of 68 years, John Taylor Justice, her parents, Eugene Kilduff, Margaret (Noland) Kilduff, and 9 siblings and their spouses.
Her legacy will live on in the hearts of everyone who knew and loved her.
