Walter J. Johnson Funeral Home


Frances J. Veltre, 97, of Clark, entered eternal rest on Thursday, June 13, 2019.

Fran was born in Elizabeth to Charles and Rose (Smith) Svoboda. She lived in Union prior to moving to Clark 66 years ago to the new home she and her husband built, and where they remained for the rest of their lives.

Fran was an enthusiastic volunteer throughout her life, giving generously of her time to St. Agnes Church, where she served as president of the Rosary Society for two terms, Rahway Hospital, where she volunteered in excess of 3500 hours, and the Clark Gran Centurions, where she served as the club historian for several years. She remained socially active through her nineties, and truly cherished her many friendships.

Fran was an unabashed fan of Frank Sinatra, an armchair golfer, and an avowed chocoholic. She will be remembered most fondly for her mischievous sense of humor, her infectious laughter and her love of good food shared with good company.

Fran was predeceased by her beloved husband Edward M. Veltre, her brother Lindy Svoboda and sister Marguerite Svoboda. She is survived by her children, Robert E. Veltre and wife Virginia and Edward J. Veltre and his wife Sharon, her cherished grandson Edward J. Veltre, her brother Philip Svoboda and her sister Roseanne Brennan.

Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend the visitation at the Walter Johnson Funeral Home, 803 Raritan Rd., Clark, on Thursday, June 20 from 2-4 and 7-9 pm. The funeral begins at the funeral home on Friday at 8:45 am, thence to St. Agnes Church, Clark, where a funeral mass will be offered at 9:45 am. Entombment will follow in St. Gertrude Cemetery, Colonia.

In lieu of flowers please donate in her memory to the Clark Volunteer Emergency Squad, 875 Raritan Rd., Clark, NJ 07066.
