Francis Ann Hazen ’42

She was “Ponchine” to her dad, and “Francie” to her mom, but for the year she attended Reed College, 1938-39, she was known as Ann.

Forever at the hub of an extended family, Ann entertained her parents’ friends when she lived with them in their home on Myrtle Court. By working hard at Yours Truly Catering, she was able to buy a house, where as a single mom she raised three kids. Then she met Walter Davol, with whom she spent the next 30 years. Late in life, she rounded out her collection of names by marrying Ed Frances, becoming Francis Ann Frances.

A son, Howard Miller, predeceased Ann, and her children, Sue and Steve Miller, survive her.
