On Aug. 19, Irma Frank at 91. Born in Brooklyn, she attended Brooklyn College, followed by NYU, where she met Len, her husband-to-be. She went on to become a biology teacher in Baltimore, but put her career on hold to have a family. When she later returned to teaching, she chose the Home & Hospital School and made a real difference to high schoolers unable to attend the classroom. In addition to founding and leading a Girl Scout troop in Baltimore County, she had an active social life revolving mainly around bridge, swimming and tennis, which she enjoyed into her 80s. She was resourceful, creative, smart and upbeat — a pleasure to be with for friends and family. She will be greatly missed. She was predeceased by Len Frank, her husband of nearly six decades. She is survived by children Audrey (husband Philippe), Bernice and David (wife Martha); grandchildren Kevin, Andy, Ryan and Isabel, who will cherish a host of “grandma memories;” and great-grandchild Noah, who will hear all about her and learn to know her through photos.
