Warrington, Fran's family, art colleagues, and all SGC friends: My sincerest condolences to all of you. I will miss having my yearly SGC dinner and drinks with Fran. She was one of the most exceptional women/artist I have ever met. Sincerely, Karin

Fran was a wonderful woman, teacher and also mentor for many. A classy lady who is already missed.

Fran was an unforgettable inspiration for me during and after my years at UW Madison ('75-'76). Just as many others her life has touched, I was especially watchful of her discerning and contemplative intellect and wit. She and Warrington are printmaking royalty and beloved by all. Dear friend thank you for sharing you life with us.

Fran was such an amazing teacher, artist and person. She was incredibly inspirational to and supportive of her needy grad students. Plus, she was tons of fun. Sweet Fran, you will be missed.

I am so sorry to have learned about Frans passing. She was a very important mentor to me and to so many others.

Remarkable Soul she was, Bless Warrington and may he be well
