She was interested and skilled in everything from comptometers to calligraphy, babies, books, and bridge. Fran and Al married in 1943 and raised four children while living in Calgary, Medicine Hat, Winnipeg, and Lethbridge before retiring in Medicine Hat. Fran always kept her family connected. Her love, laughter, and support blessed us all. As Mom often said, “It has been a privilege and a pleasure”.
