Frank Walter Johannes was born Nov. 5, 2020, and named for his great-grandfathers Francis XJ Donelan and Walter Edward Ringel. Frank was a calm and cuddly snug-filled baby with nothing but possibility and promise. During his brief but beautiful life he was loved deeply by his parents Maggie and Matt and his proud older sister Evelyn.
He is survived by family who already adored him starting with his grandparents, Barb and Chris Settele and John and Linda Donelan, followed by a parade of aunts and uncles: Buffy Johannes, Brandon Johannes (Meredith), Aaron Johannes (Danielle), Emily Donelan Rose (Zak), Kate Donelan Habib (Fadi), Lizzie Donelan (Alex) and Maura Donelan O’Donnell (Billy) and a crew of cousins: Kenzie, Jace, Raelyn, Max, Sloane, Olivia and Sean.
We are so grateful to have had him here with us on Earth, even for a short time, and he’ll always be a part of our family.
