Obituary for Frances Doris Sadler

Frances D. Sadler, age 92, of Boone, died November 12, 2017 at Boone County Hospital.

Funeral Services will be Friday, November 17, 2017 at 10:30 a.m., at the Augustana Lutheran Church in Boone with Rev. Dan Solomon officiating. Burial will be in the Linwood Park Cemetery.

Frances Doris (Friest) Sadler, was born on February 7, 1925, the daughter of Joseph and Emma (Freda) Friest. On May 21, 1944 Frances was united in marriage to Merle W. Sadler at the Augustana Lutheran Church in Boone. In earlier years, she worked for Hallett Construction, in the paving division, as a secretary. Frances was very active in her church, ABWA, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts, and school PTA. She enjoyed solving crossword puzzles and reading, especially ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ books. Fran enjoyed reading to herself and reading to others. She was a very talented seamstress and would use her skills to make her children’s clothing or teaching them to sew. Fran collected bells, cardinal figurines, nativities, and loved her angel collection, which was on display year round. She enjoyed listening to hymns, watching the Hallmark channel and ‘Dancing with the Stars’ on television, and baking. Fran’s greatest joy was a visit or call from her children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren—she loved them so!

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Merle; and five siblings. Frances is survived by two daughters, Sharon (Jack) Ver Helst of Boone, and Debbie (Dennis) Mikesell of Clear Lake; three sons, Ken Sadler of Story City, Dave (Lilo) Sadler of Boone, and Tim Sadler of Boone; seven grandchildren, Brian Ver Helst, Jeff (Gayle) Ver Helst, Wendy (CJ) Brown, Eric Ver Helst, Christina Sadler, Amanda (Dustin) Staade and Justin Mikesell; seven great-grandchildren, Ethan, Katelyn, Chelbie, Breanna, Myley, Emmett, Sabrina.

Friends may call at the Schroeder-Reimers Memorial Chapel, at Sixth and Marshall, on Thursday from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. The family will be present during this time. On Friday, visitation will be at the Church from 9:30 a.m. until service time.

In memory of Frances, memorials may be directed to the family to be distributed at a later date.
