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.

Payable to: Elisabeth Mitchell Charitable Trust

In memo line: In memory of Dr. Fran

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)
