I remember the upbeat and positive person that Fran was when we worked together in the kitchen at PMLC during various church functions. She liked working with us kitchen volunteers. She and my father, Ron Wiemann, always laughed and joked together. Fran was very proud of her daughter Denise. She took pride in Denise's vocal abilities in the choir. Denise and Bill headed up the youth group many years ago, and my sister, Kelly, enjoyed their leadership. So my family ties to the Lindquist family bring me to honor the Lindquists and Fran at this this time. I'll always remember Fran's smile. She brought good humor and positivity to all. She will be missed. Denise and Bill, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
