Frantz was born Dec. 2, 1912, in Grand Rapids, Minn.

Haiti was born May 14, 1913, in Toledo, Ohio.

Frantz and Haiti moved to Del Mar, Calif., from Chicago at the end of World War II.

After retiring in 1986, the two moved to Smith River and spent their days wandering the beaches and enjoying friends. Frantz passed away in 1997, and Haiti spent several wonderful years with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by her children Stephanie "Stevie" Reynolds of Harbor, Muffy Peugh of Encinitas, Calif., Chris Tascher of Vista, Calif. Also surviving are six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
