Now if Frances Wood isn’t an inspiration to all of us, then I don’t know who is.
Frances Wood decided to take charge of her life and go back to school, two years after her husband passed away. They had been married for 59 years and she was heartbroken, and needed something that would bring her joy again. So Frances enrolled at MidAmerica Nazarene University, in Olathe, Kansas.
She was nicknamed, “Granny Franny” and students said, “She’s kind of like a Grandma away from home.” They flocked around her and enjoyed her company.
The students wanted to give something back to “Granny Franny,” so at Homecoming, three boys asked her out. She told them they should be looking for “real girls, that are potential wives,” but as the most popular person on Campus, they crowned her “Home Coming Granny.”
After reading about Frances, I contacted the Producer of KCTV5.com, Kansas, and asked if they could put in touch with the “Gutsy” Frances Wood. They are forwarding my e-mail to Frances Wood, and I hope to interview her and host her on my blog as well as receive her “My Gutsy Story®” in the near future. Please check back and I shall let you know.
