“We were saddened to hear of Frances Monson's passing. Her wonderful example will be missed! We appreciated her many visits to our family home on Gundersen Lane when she was my elderly grandmother's visiting teacher a few years back. My grandmother enjoyed those visits and it brightened her day when she came! We pray for the Monson family during this, their time of great loss.
