Frances and Henry were benefactors to a number of Christian institutions, among them Lancaster Bible College, Grace College and Seminary, Quest Missionary Aircraft, Teen Challenge, Lititz Christian School, and Lititz Grace Church, where Frances was a member for many years.
Frances was a very special wife and mother who was much loved by her husband and children, and she returned that love unreservedly. She had a sweet spirit about her that was very calming and encouraging. Her family and her many friends will retain fond memories of her life far into the future.
