Frances was born in Stratford and the family lived on Erie Street.
She recalled, "... when we used to hop on the farm sleighs after school and ride out to the city limits;  then walk back and wait for another one.  When we went out to the farm, your Dad (her uncle Harry) would meet us at the Halfway House¹ with the horse and cutter."²
She was married in 1945 and divorced in 1969.
