Frances worked for the Kuner Canning Company and helped on their dairy farm during her marriage to Jack. She baked many wedding and birthday cakes that were shared with family and friends along with German grebbles, noodles, butterballs and krautburgers.

Frances enjoyed sewing and made prom dresses for her granddaughters, sewed clothing for other family members, and enjoyed quilting. Her family recalls that she didn’t like to throw much of anything away that could be put into one of her sewing creations. Frances enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren who called her FiFi.
Frances was also an active member of her community. Frances and her husband Jack were leaders o f the Golden West 4-H club for over 25 years. She was also a member of the Platteville United Methodist Church and United Methodist Women, serving as president.
The family wishes to give a special thanks to her caregivers from Home Instead Senior Care and Safe Harbor Assisted Living. They all had a special place in her life and her heart.
