Jochimsen; parents, Joseph and Elizabeth (David) Solomon; brother, Tom Solomon; 4 sisters, Lillian Schmitt, Edith Lytle, Mary Parmelee, and Martha Williams; and 2 brothers-in-law, Melvin Jochimsen and Ralph Jochimsen.

Born in Sioux City, IA, Frances spent most of her life in Plattsmouth, working beside her father to make Solomon's Market a hometown favorite for almost 20 years. In 1947, she met and married Mert (the engagement photo was his favorite of her) and they continued the family business as Jochimsen's Market for another 20 years. Frances closed her career as the Produce Manager at Offutt's Commissary, working until she was in her early 70's. She was the Past Worthy Matron of Home Chapter #189 Order of the Eastern Star; member of the VFW Auxiliary and FOE 365 Eagles Auxiliary; and received a Knights of Ak-sar-ben Foundation and World Herald Good Neighbor Award in 2000. Frances loved gardening and frequently shared her roses with friends and merchants in town. But it is the love of family for which she will be remembered the most.
