Thinking about all the Wagner family at this difficult time. I have many many fond childhood memories of "Grandma Fran", most notably her many stories and songs at the Wagner family cottage on George Lake. She will be missed.

Mary Lou (Reser) Raterman

I visited Fran my last trip to Sidney and we talked for a while. Her sister-in-law, Sylvia Haywood is my friend and former classmate at Holy Angels and we frequently see each other in Florida. Sylviahas spoken so often of how wonderful Fran and Eddie were to her and her daugher Kathryn. My condolences and prayers.

The Hodge Family
