Fran was very proud of graduating from North Seattle Community College with her Pharmacy Technician degree. She had a vast knowledge of drugs and their effects and took great joy in sharing that information with others. She enjoyed working with the staff at Cascade Valley Hospital until her retirement several years ago.
Fran was secretary for many bowling leagues. She loved her bowling friends and the friendly competition.
Fran lived life on her own terms and fought cancer with the same determination.
