Dorothy Frahm

April 14, 1922 — April 29, 2017

   Dorothy Lola, daughter of Henry W. and Dora (Hagge) Frahm, was born April 14, 1922, at home on the farm in Crawford County, Iowa.  She attended Hayes #7 country school then continued to work on her parent’s farm until about 1948 when they retired. 

   Following her father’s sudden death in 1949, Dorothy continued to live with and care for her mother in Manning. When her mother died in 1966 Dorothy moved to an apartment.  Dorothy always fulfilled a role of caregiver, whether working for the Elmer Mueller family in their home, her own nieces and nephews or at the Manning Plaza.  She worked in the laundry at the Manning Plaza Nursing Home and Hospital for nearly 32 years, retiring in November of 1998.  Dorothy enjoyed driving into her later years and keeping her home.  She loved all the Iowa seasons, even snow in the winter.  Dorothy was active in the United Methodist Church in Manning.

   In 2016 Dorothy moved to the Manning Plaza Nursing Home.  Following a short hospital stay, she died at the Manning Regional Healthcare Center at Manning, Iowa on Saturday morning, April 29, 2017.  Dorothy was 95 years and 15 days of age.

   Preceding her in death are her parents; brother Ivan and wife Norma Frahm; and nephews Dennis Frahm and Merlin Frahm.

   Dorothy is survived by nephew Kenneth Frahm (Rose Mary) of Templeton; niece Eileen Monson (Gary) of Audubon; nephew Robert Frahm of Des Moines; six great nieces and nephews; other relatives and friends.
