November 8, 1954-April 23, 2019

After a short battle with cancer, Frances Elaine (Dobry) Young, 64, passed away at her daughter’s home in Gordon, Nebraska, on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.

Frances was born in Alliance at St. Joseph Hospital on November 8, 1954 to Vaclav James Dobry and Rosemarie (Loch) Dobry. She was the fourth of five children. Frances attended high school in Alliance Nebraska and graduated in 1973.

Frances spent 24 years at the Gordon/Rushville Public School until she retired in 2013, working as a Custodian. She enjoyed working with the teachers and staff. She was usually trying to keep the students out of trouble or listening to them. She was a hard worker and did what she could for the people around her.
