Frances A.B. Kleiber-Anderson, 96, of Marysville, died Thursday, May 3, 2018 at her residence with her loving family by her side.
As a homemaker, she tended the family farm alongside her husband. Blessed with the special talent of embroidery, her beautiful work could be seen in her handmade quilts. Frances also enjoyed reading, but her greatest joy was her family, especially her daughters and the bond they shared. Playing games with her grandchildren could always bring a smile to her face.
A woman of deep faith, she was a lifelong member of St. John’s Lutheran Church, where she was Baptized and Confirmed.
She was a 1940 graduate of Union Rural High School in Milford Center.
