Obituary for Shirley Fallon French

January 4, 1965 - May 3, 2021
Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania | Age 56


Shirley was the loving wife of Craig W. French and the devoted mother of their children Kiely E. French, Connor W. French, Jenna F. French, and Hannah L. French. Shirley passed peacefully in her sleep. She is also survived by her siblings Deborah A. Fallon, Lisa L. Fallon, John M. Fallon (and his wife Kim), and Jason D. Fallon (and his wife Christy), all of whom affectionately refer to her as "Nene". She was predeceased by her father John "Jack" Fallon Jr. of Philadelphia PA and her mother Shirley Fallon Murphy (nee Milak) of Newtown PA.

Above all else, Shirley's greatest joy came from her children whom she absolutely loved, adored and cherished. She also enjoyed music, gardening, drawing, perfecting new recipes, sailing and playing tennis with her many friends. Shirley received her degree from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to devoting herself to raising her family as a full-time mom, Shirley was a financial analyst with Cigna in the corporate mergers and acquisitions group in Philadelphia. More recently as a real estate agent with Berkshire Hathaway, she excelled at helping people find their new homes in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

An outdoor service for friends and family celebrating Shirley's life will be held at Saint Andrew's Episcopal Church in Yardley, PA on Saturday, May 22 at 10:00am. The service will also be broadcast via Zoom for those unable to attend in person. Interment will be held in a private ceremony at a later date in Washington Crossing National Cemetery.
