Sandra K. Frakes, 72, of Mt. Union, IA, died Thursday, November 15, 2012, at her daughter’s home.
Sandra was a kidney transplant recipient seven years ago, and has chosen to donate her body to the Carver College of Medicine at the University of Iowa for scientific research. There will be no services, but her wishes are for family and friends to gather, as they are able, for a meal to share memories and appreciate one another. Memorials have been established to Great River Hospice and the University of Iowa Kidney Transplant Unit. Those wishing to donate to a memorial may send it to Olson-Powell Memorial Chapel, P.O. Box 656, Mt. Pleasant, IA, or deliver the donation to 709 E. Mapleleaf Drive during normal business hours.
