It is with great sadness we learned about the passing of our beloved Jean Fee yesterday. Jean, a 1959 Frontier School graduate, worked as a district nurse for the Frontier Nursing Service. She loved FNS and Frontier Nursing University dearly and visited campus regularly to share stories of her time as a Frontier nurse with the students. Most importantly, she was a wonderful spirit and a great friend to us all. She will be missed by everyone deeply.
You can read more about Jean here.
