Fran loved living on the lake and hanging out with friends & family. She enjoyed spending time with each of her grandchildren while they were growing up. She would often have all the kids over to spend the day on the lake swimming, fishing, and enjoying 4 Seasons chicken and homemade root beer. Her grandchildren were very important to her. She made sure to spend quality time with each of them, whether it be spending the day with them for their birthday, back-to-school shopping, or having pop parties featuring her favorite drink, Pepsi. She also had many hobbies including cameo collecting, needlepoint, traveling, coloring, & hydrating her “Angels”.
