    Out of curiosity, what's the importance of knowing his mother's name? – Tamir Evan Jan 7 '19 at 9:30

    To name ones daughter after @tamirevan most Lubavitch families have a Chaya Mushka (wife of the recent Rebbe) most Breslov families have a Feiga after the mother of Rav Nachman – yosefkorn Jan 7 '19 at 21:18

The Geni genalogical website identifies her as Lipke Frances. See her other biographical records on MyHeritage.

The last name matches the one of Mordecai Frances which this biography of the Ari identifies as "the rich brother of his mother who took care of his upbringing and education." (similarly here).
