WATERLOO - Fran Waring, age 83, of Waterloo, Iowa, died on Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2022, at Wellspring Health Center, Friendship Village in Waterloo.
A family celebration of life will be held at a later date.
Fran was born on April 2, 1939, in Cresco, Iowa, and was adopted as an infant by Walter and Grace Stevenson Fye of Cresco, who cared deeply for her welfare. She was an outstanding musical talent, even as a child.
While in high school, she taught piano, was in singing groups, band and accompanied countless music events. She graduated from Cresco High School in 1957 and attended Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa as a music major. It was there she met her husband, Jim, the love of her life. They were married on Aug. 2, 1959, in Cresco.
Fran worked steadily as a private music teacher, office worker and volunteered throughout the years. Volunteer involvement was with the schools, Scouts and hospitals. Music, typing, cards, knitting and just “helping out” were always important parts of who she was. She touched so many lives in a positive way, always listening with the goal of understanding.
Every day was a new day and a fresh opportunity to enjoy, to share and to marvel in God’s Amazing Grace. She loved her family passionately. She enjoyed her church, friends and service groups. She enjoyed cooking, camping, knitting, playing bridge, socializing and just being a friend.
Fran was inviting, as she shared her musical talent in performance, sing-alongs, accompanying, teaching or just telling/playing a musical endearment in the background. If she didn’t know how to do something, she would learn about it and proceed to do it beautifully. Family and friends may hear her accompanying a choir of angels in heaven or be invited to join a sing-along. Fran is painfully missed, but her music of life and love will continue endlessly.
Fran and Jim were blessed as parents with two outstanding children, Bradley (Roxanne) Waring of Simpsonville, S.C. and Christine (Jonathan) Anderson of Post Falls, Idaho. They were blessed further with the birth of six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. All survive their mother/grandmother/great-grandmother.
Fran was preceded in death by her parents.
Memorials may be given to the Friendship Village Foundation. Online condolences may be left at www.lockefuneralservices.com.
