Frances Lou Ann was born August 5, 1937 to John and Grace (Kuhlman) Huisman in Buffalo Center, IA. After graduating high school from Frost in 1955, she married her soul mate, Chuck Krinkie. Together they raised 2 children and lived on the Krinkie family farm in rural Blue Earth for many years prior to retiring. Frances held several jobs at the Faribault County courthouse over the years. She and Chuck did everything together. Some of their favorites were going for bike rides and walks together in their neighborhood. She enjoyed going to their grandkid’s events and baking with the granddaughters, especially making and decorating Christmas cut out cookies. Family was very important to her and making special memories with them was how she loved to spend her time.
