Dorothy and Harold Franks
When they retired from Ohio in 1939, it was no surprise to Dorothy that Harold
went back to work in their new hometown of Fort Lauderdale.
He and Dorothy were still quite young when Harold began his second career as an appraiser for First Federal Savings and Loan of Broward. They were surrounded by a large professional and social circle, and were thrilled to be part of Broward County as it grew up around them. Residents for more than 50 years, Harold and Dorothy loved their South Florida home.
They watched their community grow and evolve, and the Franks knew better than anyone that just as the needs of people change, so do the needs of a community. As they grew older, Dorothy battled both cancer and arthritis. Harold took care of her and now his thoughtful plans take care of the community they both loved.
