Frances Jane Erkman passed away May 15 at St. Francis Assisted Living Care in Turlock. She was born in 1927 in Harrisburg, Ill. to the late Charles and Dean Mitchell. She moved to
Dubuque, Iowa in 1951, and then Park Forest, Ill. in 1957. Jane moved to Campbell, Calif. in 1968, where she was an office manager for Associated Psychotherapist for 27 years. After retiring, she moved to Newman in 1995, before she settled in Turlock five years ago.

She was an avid sports fan who supported the San Francisco 49ers and Giants.
She is survived by her children, Emily Carlson of Ceres, David Erkman of Long Beach and Susan Erkman of Albuquerque, NM; eight grandchildren; one great grandchild; and former husband, James Erkman. She was preceded in death by her son, James Erkman; and grandson, Steven Erkman.
