Dr. Frances (Pierce) Lankford (Staff 1946-1989) died peacefully on Feb. 6, 2016.

She spent 20 summers at camp over a 50-year span, and had the unique distinction of serving with each of Nakanawa’s three Directors. Her two daughters, granddaughter and ... coming this summer ... a great granddaughter keep the Lankford camp tradition strong.

The family has requested that memorial gifts for Dr. Fran be made to the Elisabeth Mitchell Charitable Trust. Checks may also be mailed directly to camp:
Payable to: Elisabeth Mitchell Charitable Trust
Camp Nakanawa, 1084 Camp Nakanawa Rd., Crossville, TN 38571
In memo line: In memory of Dr. Fran

Here is that link to an interview with her featured recently on FB:

I am embarassed to say that I havent written both Lynda and Patti a note about how what a wonderful addition the Tone Chimes are to Camp Nakanawa. They have been a blessing in so many ways...and to hear at Church and Taps is so very special. Many thanks to Dr. Fran; her angel will always be heard. And Patti: I have to laugh, there was a rouge canoe in the lake this summer... pretty sure your Ma was out there studying for her exams. ( I just loved that story about dr. Fran)
