A man fatally shot multiple rounds at his wife in front of their two children after a heated argument at dinner.

A GoFundMe campaign that aims to raise funds to help cover the family's funeral costs described the mom as a "beautiful mother, daughter, sister, and friend who touched countless lives of those around her." The fundraiser reads, "Frances dedicated her life to her children and always spread the love she had to share. She was the most genuine, thoughtful, loyal and ambitious woman we've all been blessed to know."
The fundraiser describes Frances as that friend who you could always depend upon. "Frances was that friend that would help you celebrate good times and provide nothing but support during the bad times," the campaign read.
Two toddlers, ages 3 and 4, are left behind by Frances. "We are currently asking for a donation of 30k to help cover the cost of Frances' memorial services as well as any extra assistance we can give to help her family survive this hard time," the campaign shares.
The family, per the fundraiser, is "devastated by Frances' unexpected loss," adding that they "were not prepared for the high cost of a funeral service." The fundraiser added, "We want to give Frances the memorial she truly deserves, honor her memory, and say our last goodbyes."
