Frances L. Eggink
                                December 30, 1956 - March 5, 2021

She was born December 30, 1956, to Henry Kauffman and Helen (Tuttle) Hull
in Goshen, Indiana. Frances Leanne Eggink, 64, of Elkhart, Indiana, passed
away on March 5, 2021, after a valiant fight against cancer. She was born
December 30, 1956, to Henry Kauffman and Helen (Tuttle) Hull in Goshen,
Indiana. Fran grew up in the Constantine Public School District in Michigan.
On December 27, 1986, she married Alfons Eggink, and she worked at the
Ramada Inn in Elkhart for 15 years before becoming a homemaker. Being
involved in her kids’ schooling and activities was very important to her-she
loved every science project, field trip, and early morning football game. After
becoming an empty nester, Fran joined Elkhart Community Schools for 12
years where she enjoyed being around kids and working with great people.
Fran will be remembered as a beloved daughter, dedicated wife, proud
mother, delighted grandmother, and warmhearted friend. Her nurturing
nature extended to all, including the family pets. She made every birthday
and holiday special with fantastic food, including her famous lasagna. Fran's
creativity and inventiveness really showed when making Halloween
costumes for her kids. She enjoyed family vacations, especially visiting the
Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Minnesota. Rain, snow, or shine, Fran
enjoyed camping and nature. She had a green thumb that, unfortunately, was
not passed down to her daughters. She is survived by her mother Helen Hull;
husband Alfons Eggink; three children, Trinity (Stephenson) Madlem and her
husband Rick Madlem of Sebring, Florida, Tony Eggink and his partner Erin
Morrissey of Seattle, Washington, and Amanda (Eggink) McIntire and her
husband Nathan McIntire of Spring, Texas; and two grandchildren, Tycho
and Soren McIntire. A celebration of life party will be scheduled once it is  
safe for people to come together.
