Francine "Fran" Osborne
Fran Osborne has lived in Airway Heights for over 30 years, and is a true believer on giving back to the community. After retiring here with her husband in the mid 90's, Fran found purpose in volunteering and working to build a better community. She was instrumental in keeping the recreation programs up and running at a time when recreation programs were eliminated. Her tireless efforts led to the City re-establishing youth programs and other recreational opportunities for citizens. She also took over the food bank and helped run the Airway Heights Food Pantry for 5 years. Fran has worn many volunteer hats over the years including volunteering at the Airway Heights Baptist Church, but none meant more to her than her work with the Parks and Recreation Department. Volunteering every Tuesday for 15 years helping run the Senior Lunch Program, sitting on the Senior Advisory Commission, as well as the Park Advisory Board, Fran's hard work, dedication, and passion will always be cherished. Thank you Fran!
