Contra Costa County
California, USA

Longtime Resident of Clayton Carmen Frank, died on Sunday, May 30th at age 91. Her parents were butcher shop owners, John and Henrietta Meincke Dobbel in Hayward. She came to Clayton after marrying George Frank, son of Will and Metta Frank. Carmen and George were married at Carmen's home in Hayward on March 3rd, 1937. While George served his country during World War II, Carmen worked at Camp Stoneman in Pittsburg doing her part for the war effort. During the food shortages during the war, she honed her culinary skills and became locally renowned for her cooking expertise. Carmen was involved in the Odd Fellows and Rebekah Lodge for many years. In 1940 she was the youngest of 21 new Rebekah candidates in the state. She played the piano and organ, and enjoyed the social life afforded her by her club affiliations. Carmen and George were charter members of the Clayton Historical Society, members of the Grange Association and other organizations too numerous to mention. They held officer or director positions in most organizations in which they volunteered. Their love for children kept them busy with the Morgan Territory 4-H club and Carmen could be seen quite often with her 1957 Chevy station wagon jam-packed with kids going to the County Fair, 4-H camp or other events. Carmen is survived by her two children, Jack and Bonnie, six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Her ashes will be interred at Live Oak Cemetery with her late husband, George.
