Last updated 6/24/2020 at 4:14pm

Frances Edna Woodfield, 82, passed away on February 3, 2020, surrounded by family and loved ones at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Washington.

Fran grew up in Poulsbo, Washington, where she graduated from North Kitsap High School. She later met and married Grant Woodfield, a naval officer stationed in Bremerton, Washington. They soon embarked on a lifetime together, living in Edmonds, Picnic Point and eventually, Spokane, Washington.

Fran was a creative and resourceful artist, an impeccable seamstress and a life-long supporter and director of the Edmonds Arts Festival. Beginning in the 1960s, she gradually curated an eclectic collection of art that reflected the times. Known for her exquisite taste and impressive gardening skills, Fran maintained an elegant home both inside and out. She also enjoyed craft projects and decorated the Christmas tree in delicate hand-crocheted snowflakes, one of many skills she learned as a teenager.

Fran is survived by her children, Sheri Renner, Katherine (Tim) Donaldson, and Martin (Kathy) Woodfield. She also has eight grandchildren, whom brought great joy to her later years.
