She was born June 28, 1911, in Baggs, Wyo., to Ed and Leone Neal. Her father wanted a boy so they named her Frankie.

She was an active bowler and a volunteer for many senior projects. She loved the big band dances at the Pasco Senior Center.
She was a 22-year member of the Eagles. She worked as an Information Operator for JD Telephone.
She is survived by her son, Wayne Stauffer; and daughters, Karen Jensen, Mary Jordan, Jean Eisenhauer and Shirley Calhoun.
A funeral will be held on Dec. 18, 2004, at Central Lutheran in Morton, Wash. There will also be a dance in her memory on Dec. 15.
