Obituary for Frances L. Midlar

In Loving Memory
Frances L. Midlar
October 17, 2022

Frances L. Midlar, 98, of Brewerton, NY; passed away on Monday, October 17, 2022 at her home, surrounded by her family. Frances was the oldest of eight children of Wilford and Marion Bellinger. She grew up mostly around Brewerton and Clay. She married John (Jack) Midlar and raised three children: Jack, Wayne, and Joyce.

In her younger years, Frances worked with her friends at Village Florist in Liverpool. She met and made friends with many people who came to her house from all over to buy her wonderful pies. She bowled in leagues and one time bowled a 300 game. She became the family historian and put much effort and with great expense to research and trace the family genealogy. Most of the information was obtained before the computer, but once she got a computer, she spent a lot of time putting it all in Ancestry so that others could make the connections easier. She also knitted and crocheted and distributed her results to all her family and friends. She always had gardens and flowers all around her home.

She was predeceased by her husband, John “Jack” Midlar; and her two sons, Jack Midlar Jr and Wayne Midlar.

Frances is survived by her daughter, Joyce Santee; ten grandchildren, along with several great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sisters, Nancy Oswald and Shirley Zollo along with several nieces and nephews.

Funeral Services will be celebrated privately. Arrangements are in care of Harter Funeral Home, Inc. 9525 S. Main Street, Brewerton, NY.
