Tinker was a 1960 graduate of Audubon High School. Frances retired after many years as an administrative assistant with the Athletic Department for the University of Pennsylvania. Tinker will be remembered for her kind, generous, vibrant spirit, but most of all for her love of family and friends. Tinker would always remind us that, “we may not have it all together, but together we have it all.”
