Frances Lucile (Hutton) Danielson was born July 22, 1927 in Northfield, Minnesota; the daughter of Frank and Ruth (Little) Hutton. Frances grew up south of the Twin Cities and attended the Minnesota School of Business. Her younger years sparked her love for traveling and she visited many places while beginning her working career in Minneapolis. Her roommate at the time introduced her to her cousin, a young man named Myron Danielson, and the beginning of a love story was made. Myron and Frances were married on October 4, 1958 at Central Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. The couple made their home in Maywood Township where they farmed. Frances was busy, not only at home, but also worked as the secretary for Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church for about 25 years. She and Myron were active members of the church and Frances shared her talents and time by volunteering as a Sunday School teacher and participating in the Naomi Circle. She served as a Benton County 4-H leader for 15 years and volunteered annually with Combined Charities. Frances was a gifted and adventurous cook. She tended to a large garden and enjoyed canning her harvest. She kept her mind active, well into her older years; enjoying reading, watching Jeopardy, and doing crossword puzzles.
