Frances was born December 3, 1924 in Fayette Co., Iowa to Fred and Bertha (Fink) Brickman. She married Kenneth Sievers on April 14, 1945 in California. She was primarily a homemaker throughout her life, always putting her family first. She was an excellent cook and no one ever left her home hungry. Frances held a special place in the hearts of everyone who knew her. Frances sold her home in 2016 and moved to Valley View Village where she just blossomed. She came to love the friends she made there like they were her extended family.
Frances is survived by her brother, Arlen (Donna) Brickman and brother-in-law, Larry (Carol) Sievers, both of Waverly, Iowa; 3 children, Jeannine (Mark) Telfer, John Sievers (Rani), and Jackie Miller; 5 grandchildren, Scot, Susan (Rob), Stephen (Deborah), Christopher (Nichole), and Chelsea (Josh); 7 great-grandchildren, Celeste, Austin, Gavin, Nash, Cora, Izabella, and Karson; and 2 great-great-grandchildren, Jordan and Sophie. She was preceded in death by her husband, Kenneth Sievers; son-in-law, Mike Miller; her eight siblings; and her parents, Fred and Bertha Brickman.
