Barbara Frank

October 5, 1948 — January 4, 2022

Barbara (Yoemans) Frank, 73, of Fergus Falls, passed away peacefully at her home Tuesday, January 4, 2022.

Barbara Lynne was born October 5, 1948, to Richard and Patsy “Pat” (Olson) Yoemans in Bemidji, MN.

She married Al Frank on July 31, 2010. They made their home together in Fergus Falls, while also enjoying time spent at their cabin in Northern Minnesota. He was the great love of her life. Her happiest moments were by his side. In her words, he made her feel peace, love, and secure every day they were together.

Preceding her in death were her father, Richard Yoemans and brother-in-law, Randy Tanem.

Barbara is survived by her husband, Al Frank; her mother, Pat Yoemans; her sister, Bonnie Yoemans Tanem; brother, Brian Yoemans; her children, Shane (Gina) Poppy and Ryan (Bethany) Falch; her step children, Troy (Crystal) Frank, Nicole (Duane) Tabbut, and Brett Frank, and multiple beloved grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was an artist, a dreamer, a builder, a lover of nature, and a creator. She would say that her greatest creation was her family. All of whom she loved deeply and who she will be greatly missed by.
