Frances Grace (Hardy) Sentman passed on February 9, 2018 of causes indicative to Alzheimer's Disease.

Born on January 18, 1928 to LeRoy and Mary (Schultz) of Iowa City, Iowa. Frances always fondly recalled her years "on the farm".

She enjoyed volunteering, cooking, crosswords, handicrafts and loved cats. Frances had a quick wit and a genuinely kind demeanor that resulted in many lifelong friends.

A faithful Christian and devout Catholic, Frances volunteered as her parish nurse at St. Louise De Marillac church in LaGrange Park, IL. She treasured family and loved spending time with her daughter, grandsons and great-grandkids.
