72 "Frances Mina Dawson was born on Easter Sunday and died on Thanksgiving Day. Her parents, Frank and Hazel Dawson, lived at 1512 E Michigan Street in Evansville when Frances was born at 2:55 p.m. on April 4, 1915. Dr. Macer delivered her at 9 pounds with Frances' grandmother, Fannie Koenig, acting as nurse. Her first name likely was drawn from her father's Frank and her middle name came from Frank's mother, Ermina. Grandma Koenig discovered Frances' first tooth at 5 months, according to a baby book kept by Frances' mother, Hazel. Her second tooth came in a couple of weeks later and was discovered by her father. She was christened at Mount Olivet Church. At about 6 months, Frances said her first words, "Da Da" and "Mom Mom". By 9 months, she was saying, "Bye Bye" and "No No". She took her first steps Jan. 22, 1916, to her Aunt Lillian, Hazel's sister. At some point when Frances was quite young, Frank Dawson left for the store and never came back. The family never knew what became of him. "It was rumored that Frank Dawson joined the army during WW I,'' wrote Frances' cousin, Jim Myers, in a 1999 letter. "Letters to the War Department was (sic) to no avail. No one as far as we know ever heard from him." In the baby book, sponsored by Borden, a milk company, there's another entry: "On 10 of November 1930, she got a new daddy. Daddy Frank Kennedy." Frank Kennedy was a railroad man who lived in San Francisco. He took good care of Hazel, but Frances was pretty far along in her schooling and stayed in Evansville with Grandma Koenig ("Bappy") and "Aunty" Lillian. Frances often visited California on the railroad, especially for summers. As a birthday present in 1926, "Aunty and Grandmother" presented Frances with a bible that she used to record much family history in subsequent years. At Central High School in Evansville, she began dating Paul Walsh, but Paul's older brother, Jack, took a liking to Frances and they became a couple. After high school, Frances studied at Evansville College to earn a teaching certificate. Frances still made trips to California on the train, and once had a screen test with a movie studio. With Jack slow to commit, she accept an engagement ring in the summer of 1935 from Ed Gorman of San Jose. It didn't take long after that for Jack to see the light and propose on his own. Jack and Frances were married June 14, 1936 at St. Lucas Church by the Rev. Armin Haeussler. With Jack in World War II, daughter Janet Lynne was born in 1943. Frances had gone to stay at 310 E. Michigan with her mother, aunt and Grandma Koenig. After Jack returned from the war, a second child soon was on the way. Cheryl Suzanne was born in 1947. Frances briefly taught at Delaware School from April 11-June 8 in 1951 on a temporary assignment. In 1953, after Cheryl started school, Frances became a homebound teacher for students with special needs until she retired June 8, 1977. Frances carefully arranged her teaching schedule so she could be home when Janet and Cheryl got back from school, but she took great pride in her work as a "teacher on wheels." "At times I become very disgusted with some adults and their petty complaints," she told the Evansville Press in a 1965 article. "Compared with most of the children I work with, many of these people just don't have serious problems." Frances' mother, Hazel, died June 6, 1966, and they sold the 310 E. Michigan house Nov. 30, 1967. Frances realized a dream in 1966 when she got to travel to Europe. She and Jack chaperoned a school trip and took daughter Cheryl, then in college. Janet couldn't go because she was pregnant with Jack and Frances' first grandchild. On Nov. 20, 1976, she and Jack got an early morning surprise when a driver had a seizure and her car became airborne in their front yard and landed in their dining room. Frances died early in the morning on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 23, 2000. She was buried Nov. 25 with Jack in a mausoleum at Oak Hill Cemetery."

99 "She was always smiling & laughing. Her kindness & thoughtfulness was extended to friends, strangers, and acquaintances alike, through birthday and get well wishes or 'thinking of you' cards. Once you were her friend, it was for life!" This is the legacy that Mary Helen Otto (Brauner) Haindle has left. What a testament to a life well-lived! Mary Helen, age 87, passed from our presence Friday, July 31, 2015, into the well-deserved Eternal Life. Born on All Saints' Day, November 1, 1927, the third child of Rudolph A. & Helen Mary Otto, her late parents, she joined siblings Linnell O. Gaspard (Johnny), of Metairie, and her late brothers, Rudolph A., Jr., and William Otto, in their New Orleans home. Her deep and constant Catholic faith and the foundation of her life of loving all and living "The Beatitudes" was established and nurtured by her mother, Helen Mary, in Holy Rosary Church Parish. After graduating from John McDonogh (class of 1945), she worked for the George H. Lehleitner & Co., Wholesale Distributors, while she was married to the late Henry J. "Dutch" Brauner. Their marriage produced six daughters: Barbara B. Barbe' (Gerald) of Slidell; Kathleen B. Winkler (Dennis) of Spring, TX; Susan B. Landeche (David) of Madison, MS; Elizabeth Ann Brauner (deceased 1977); Mary Helen B. Fontaine (Ray, Jr.); and Janet B. Mills (Gary), both of Slidell. Mary Helen is also survived by 8 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. She married her second husband, the late George Haindle, Sr., in 1975, and moved to Luling. She worked at St. Charles Parish Assessor's Office and later as a bookkeeper for Holy Family Catholic Church. Mary Helen was committed to service and volunteerism. She was an active member, officer, and committee chair for many decades in the Ladies' Auxiliaries of the American Legion, VFW, and the Forty & Eight service organizations. Acknowledging her extraordinary community service, Mary Helen was presented with "The Order of St. Louis Medallion" by Archbishop Francis B. Schulte at St. Louis Cathedral on May 26, 1991. One of the highest lay recognitions presented by the Archdiocese of New Orleans, the Archbishop wrote, "You have been selected to receive (the medallion) in recognition of your great dedication and years of service to the Church in our Archdiocese." She and the Rev. John Finn, Pastor of Holy Family Church, established a Senior Citizen Ministry, "The Busy Bees." As its founder and long-time "Queen Bee Coordinator", Mary Helen began the second major part of her life. Mary Helen organized, planned, and coordinated service projects, events and logistics involved with the Busy Bees. She also served as Tour Escort when the group began traveling around the United States and the world. Mary Helen's legacy of community service continues through the group she helped establish, as the Busy Bees remain active today. In a 1995 article, the Times-Picayune reported, "Haindle, … proved to be a natural organizer (of)… meetings, … health-related events … and (service activities)…" Mary Helen moved from Luling to an assisted living facility in River Ridge before moving to Slidell and then Mandeville where she passed away. Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the Funeral Mass at LAKE LAWN METAIRIE FUNERAL HOME, 5100 Pontchartrain Blvd. in New Orleans, on Monday, August 10, 2015, at 1:00PM.
