    I met Fran through the Okotoks Seniors Bridge Club, and enjoyed her quiet, thoughtful and very pleasant personality. She was always so very interesting to chat with, and must have had a challenging dynamic career. I wish I would have had the chance to get to know her better. A wonderful lady! We’ll miss her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Carol
