A TRIBUTE TO FRAN EICHLER
Fran Eichler has been a faithful contributor to the Johnson County IAGenWeb site. I visited with her in October 2006 at Kalona News where she was employed. She was eager for another assignment. We were considering another cemetery that needed documenting. It is sad that this ambitious lady was not allowed to continue with her service to the IAGenWeb.
