Frances Dueñas Suba

Frances Dueñas Suba, (“Mommy” and “Yayee”) 76, was called home by Jesus Christ, her Lord and Savior, on Monday, March 21, 2011.
Frances was born to Francisco Arriola and Esther (Mesa) Dueñas on Feb. 28, 1935, in Agana, Guam. Her formative years were spent on the island. While attending college in Spokane, Wash. she met her lifelong sweetheart, Paul F. Suba. They married on June 11, 1955, in Lakeview, which eventually became their home. After the birth of their first child, they moved to Guam in 1957.
In the 1970’s, Frances owned and operated her own beauty salon, worked in real estate, was a hostess in fine dining, and was a master director of a successful cosmetics company. However, the job she enjoyed the most was being a homemaker, caring for her family. Frances devoted her life to serving others.
Frances received Jesus as her Lord and Savior on Mother’s Day, 1978. From then on, her passion for Christ and bringing others to Him were of utmost importance. Everywhere she went, she boldly shared God’s Love. Even to her last breath, she was sharing the Word with the medical staff. In her final moments, she comforted her family with her visions of heaven, the angels encamped around her, and the Lord Himself.
Frances was preceded in death by her father Francisco Dueñas; father and mother-in-law Franz and Helene Suba; brother Joseph (Sonny); sister Edith; brothers-in-law Albin and Don; niece Kathy; grandson Alex.
She is survived by her husband Paul; sons and daughters-in-law Paul and Joyleen Suba of Agat, Guam; Mark and Suzi Suba of Lakeview; daughter Bonnie Suba of Vancouver, Wash.; daughters and sons-in-law Jonnie and Frankie Manibusan of Lakeview and Jennifer and David Gilroy of Vancouver, Wash.; sisters Patsy, Lillian and Catherine; sisters-in-law Lisa and Pat and their families; grandchildren Paul II and Natasha, Stephan, Jarred, Jeniki, P.J and Kim, Dano and Sarah, Rachel and Jerry, Zoe, Hannah, Logan, Conner and Claire; 11 great-grandchildren.
She lived a very full, vibrant life devoted to the Lord, her family and close friends.
