Frances Reed Perry

1932 - 2020


I was born on the couch in Sanford, Southern Colorado; few were born in a hospital during the depression years. My mother was 19 and my father about 22, they were living in a tiny apartment built behind the gas station my father owned in Sanford.

I remember elegant, delicious family dinners where Aunt Fran was always so gracious, warm and friendly. The food and presentation was always perfect. After dinner she would host a bazaar where she had tables laid out with things from around the world. We could choose whatever we wanted for free! Aunt Fran was always working hard, always doing interesting work, she was fascinating to talk to. I love and will miss my elegant, world traveling aunt!

Fran was a friend and a delightful colleague. She never failed to show up for a tour early, cheerful, and looking like a million bucks.

All of us at the San Francisco Tour Guide Guild will miss her greatly.

Fran, you were always cheerful, helpful, and kind. I will always treasure your gift of friendship. Working w/you in the tour industry was a joy. You loved your career, and your friends, and most of all, you loved your family. That amazing ever present energy that you possessed, enabled you to balance career, friends, and family. You always remembered all of the birthdays, and there were many, of your friends, your children and your grandchildren. You remained a happy, loving and classy Lady, no matter what bumps in the road of life that you faced. Your life story is one of Classic 20th Century Americana, a life well-lived! You are greatly missed!  As we both wd say in the tour industry, Happy Travels Fran, Love, Bob Hunt.
