Passed away November 1, 2018

at the age of 96. She enjoyed the Seahawks, duplicate bridge, and line dancing. Frances is survived by daughters Sandra Timnmer, Maxine Ogino, Gail Reed, 2 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Born FRANCES SETSUKO INOUYE OGINO

“Fran was a great Line Dancer. She could remember tons of line dances and was very dedicated to line dancing whenever she could. She celebrated a lot of her birthdays with me/us over the years and at the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn. I remember her birthday because she told me her mother called her ‘Pumpkin Head’ because she was born on Halloween. So every year (on Friday night) around her birthday she would get out in the middle of the floor with others celebrating that week and we would sing Happy Birthday to her and the crowd would go wild when we announced how old she was. I have a picture from one of those dances down below from 2004. I remember her dancing here until she was AT LEAST 92, maybe longer.”

We miss you,

“I received a call from Frances’ family that Frances passed away this morning at 5AM. She made it to her 96th Birthday which was yesterday. Her family was able to keep her at home until the end which was really nice for Frances.

She didn’t start line dancing until she was 70 and I first met her at the Riverside in Tukwila in the early 90’s. Even after she didn’t drive anymore, either myself or her daughters would bring her to the “Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn” for dancing. I loved her so very much and she was a dear friend. She loved her line dancing!”
