In Memory of

Irene Franzen

March 19, 1933 – October 8, 2017

Irene Elizabeth Franzen, was also known as “Nana”. She was the most loving and giving person. All her life goals involved helping people. She enriched so many young lives by serving as an elementary school teacher for 33 years. Family was the most important thing to Nana and was so supportive to all family members. She would give so much of herself and expect nothing in return. She worked very hard for her accomplishments and never took anything for granted. She believed in medical research and would be honored knowing she donated her eyes to help someone else. Nana loved traveling in her trailer with the love of her life, husband Herbert Franzen. She also enjoyed gardening, bakers square pitas but most of all, being among family and friends. She cherished her daughter, grand daughters and great grand children. Nana was famous for making her noodle dish and pecan pies. She had so much energy, even at the age of 84 before a brain aneurysm took her life. Nana will always be missed and in our hearts forever. ❤️

Your Loving Family
