Birth: Nov. 5, 1917
Lyon County
Kansas, USA
Death: Feb. 24, 2003
Riverside County
California, USA

Frances was a small town girl, Emporia, Kansas, when she married Norman. Norman himself had been born on a Circus. He and Frances enjoyed life and stayed on the Circus until WWII came along. He joined the Army as a insrtuctor with firearms. He was a crack shot.

I remember Frances as a fun loving woman who loved animals and water sking. My favorite photo of her was her painting the toe nails of 'Susie', the favorite baby elephant that was owned by her mother inlaw. At one point her husband supplied Hollywood with animals for the movies and Frances loved the endless parties they were invited too. A warm and loving person.

They moved down on the Colorado River and a large amount of riverside property and ran a boat rental and trailer park.

She left 4 grandchildren,
James McMinn
Lorie McMinn
Bud Anderson McMinn
Jack Anderson McMinn
