A Celebration of Life For Frances Arzu'
Funeral Mass will be held at 10 am on Saturday, July 15th
at St Mary of the Purification Catholic Church
3006 Rosedale, Houston, TX 77004. 


Our beloved Frances passed away this morning after a long and courageous battle with metastatic breast cancer.  Through all the overwhelming challenges she faced, especially in these recent months, Frances responded to the adversity with faith, grace, and her unique wit. 

Frances has impacted countless lives from the Greater Houston area, across the nation, and throughout the world. Her legacy of inspiring us all, especially women affected by breast cancer, to live life to the fullest and with much gratitude will continue.  

Once the family has finalized arrangements for Frances' Celebration of Life service, we will communicate them on Pink Phurree website and social media networks.   Please keep Frances' family, associates, friends, and Pink Phurree in your prayers.

"The only limitations we have are those that we’ve placed on ourselves. 
We have all decided to truly LOVE, LIVE AND LAUGH!!!!! " -- Frances Arzu'
