Frances (Phipps) Moan was a force in business and an absolute fireball of a woman up to her passing at age 92, Frances never slowed down. She was introduced to Holy Names High School in 1934 and teachings of the SNJM community never left her heart. As a young woman, Frances watched the parents of a close friend struggle to send their six children to Catholic schools. That early experience planted a seed in her head that would later manifest itself in her generous support of Catholic education. With that beautiful simplicity of reason and pureness of heart, Frances Moan blessed Holy Names with the largest single gift in the school’s history -- a gift that will benefit deserving young women for generations.
