Fran and her husband, Renz, moved to Tahoe full time, in 1997. Both were born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and with Renz's career in container shipping moved 5 times to various locations around the world. They have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. Two of their children live in the Tahoe area.
Fran has a favorite prayer that she uses often. "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
Fran's favorite verse is Hebrews 13:2:
"Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers,
for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it."
