Frances was born February 8, 1922 in Sioux City, IA to Ernest and Gladys (Kesner) Campbell. She grew up on a farm near Merrill, IA and graduated from Merrill High School. She married Arthur “Mel” Quintard on November 26, 1941. Due to Mel serving in WWII, they moved to North Carolina where he was stationed. After the war, they established residency around the Lawton, IA area. To this union, four daughters and a son were born. In 1955, they moved to Sioux City, IA to raise their family. Frances worked for Toller Drug and later the Red Owl store. In her upper 40’s, Frances went “back to school” enrolling in Western Iowa Tech’s first classes held in the downtown area. After receiving her Medical Secretary degree, she transcribed medical files for Dr. Ziebell for close to 30 years until her retirement. Mel passed away in 2003 after 62 years of marriage.
Frances was a member and deacon of the Faith United Presbyterian Church and a member of the church’s ladies circle.
In younger years, Mel and Frances were devout card players belonging to several card clubs. She was always appreciative to other’s kind gestures, loved to cook and solve crossword and Wheel of Fortune puzzles. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family and taking road trips to family gatherings and reunions. She thoroughly enjoyed her grandchildren and her beloved pets.
