Francine Engleman, 94, co-owner of Marty’s Mug & Munch passed away on August 15th, 2020. Born in the Bronx, Hunts Point Hospital, she was the daughter of the late Isidore and Celia Kornbluh. A graduate of James Monroe High School (1944), member of the Lunch Room Squad and Switchboard Club, Fran put her fine-tuned organizations skills to work and began employment in NYC (Madison Credit Bureau). She lived in the Bronx till her marriage (Marty, April 3rd, 1954), when she moved to “the country”, Ardsley, NY. Fran continued her commute to NYC till the birth of their first child. Fran, now proudly and passionately devoted her life to her husband, children, and of course their legendary restaurant, Marty’s Mug & Munch (1969-1989). Always the devoted wife, Fran returned to the work force after the restaurant closed (The JCC). Once again those organization skills were put to use. However an added bonus was seeing all the children as they arrived each day. Fran and Marty loved their life together, eating out, the movies, food shopping and coffee and donuts at Dunkin Donuts. Fran’s sense of humor and quick wit were recognized by all and will be missed by all. In later years mom failing health required the needs of a skilled nursing facility. She will be remembered for loving bingo, bowling, word games and parties. Her proudest moment was winning 1st Place Dog Parade with her grandpups, Louie & Calvin at the 2019 Yorktown Spring Fest – their photo made the local paper! Fran is survived by daughter Sharon (Pat), son Lenny (Deanna), granddaughter Stephanie (Steve), her brother (Myron) and loving nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her husband, Marty (October 2017). Grandma Fran is fondly loved by her grandpups, Louie, Calvin and Crackers. Friends and family may gather, Tuesday, August 18th at 12:45pm for Graveside Ceremony at Sharon Gardens Cemetery, 273 Lakeview Avenue, Valhalla, NY. Memorial contributions in Fran’s name can be made to the Ardsley Historical Society, PO Box 523, Ardsley, NY or to Jewish Women International (JWI), 1129 20th Street NW Suite 801, Washington, DC 20036.
