Frances (Jackson) Langholf



Frances (Jackson) Langholf. Born June 4, 1924 in Bettendorf, Scott, Iowa to Benjamin and Alice Mae Jackson. She passed peacefully on 20 August, 2020. She was a tough little Iowa farm girl to the end of her life. Fran moved to Albuquerque with her husband, Dever Langholf, Sr, in 1947 seeking a drier climate in which his war related injuries could heal. Fran went to work as a secretary. She worked for the New Mexico State Fair and eventually was the Office Manager for Senator Pete Domenici. Fran retired from the federal government and has been a blessing to her loving children, grand children and even great grand children who all called her 'Grammy.' Fran was preceded in death by her husband, Dever Langholf Sr., son, Jeffrey Langholf, and daughter-in-law, Erika Langholf. She is survived by sons Dever (Joan) Langholf, Jr., and Douglas Langholf and daughter-in-law Dolores; grandchildren Kim Alan Langholf, Eowyn (Lyell) Walker, Chris (Michelle) Langholf, Ian (Morgan) Langholf, Tessa Langholf and Maggie Cooksey; and five great-grandchildren. A service for the family will be held at the National Cemetery in Santa Fe, NM.

Dear Fran Was as good as they come! Brings back lots of wonderful memories and gratitude.Of course from the start, she was a stalwart and most effective part of Pete's public occupation. Fran also was a support for all our family, even after she retired. My most sincere sympathy to her family- Nancy Domenici

It was always a delight to travel with Sen. Domenici to ABQ and get to interact with Fran. She was a class act with levelheaded advice and a ready smile. Condolences to her family.

Sending love to all of Fran's family. She was always so kind to me and was always there to give a hug, which in politics are needed often. She was a wonderful lady.

Fran was a very dear friend to me for many years. We met through the Federation of Republican Women and spent so much time together. I loved her dearly and will sorely miss her sense of humor and compassion.
