I called her Frannie
She was the most awesome person I have ever known. Full of wisdom, always looked on the bright side, always willing to help in any way she could. I have thought of her real often, we worked at ACUS together, even car pooled a few times, we had some great talks and she will always be in my heart. Love you Frannie, RIP

I am sorry for your loss. I worked with Fran in Ann Arbor. What a joy to work with. When Fran retired I was happy for her. What a life she lead. RIP Fran.
