Francisca Terre Quinit-Pierce, 83, of Conway, Arkansas was born September 17, 1933 in Sison Pangasinan, Philippines to Ricardo and Marcelina Quinit. Francisca attended school in the Phillippines surrounded by siblings and other family members. This is what formed her strong family ties.
Francisca was raised as a Catholic and joined St. Joseph Catholic church when she moved to Conway. Although she was Catholic, she spread her love of Christ to friends and family of all denominations.

When Francisca moved to Conway, because of her love for people, she took a job with the Mad Butcher Super Market while maintaining her focus on her immediate and extended families, they were always a priority as she enriched, supported and encouraged them to achieve a better life.
