I was deeply pensive when notified of Marion Frank passing. Dear to our hearts, Marion was not only a radiographer and teacher but also a friend, a maternal figure for the Panhellenic Society of Radiologic Technologists whom she was part of as an honourary member and myself.
Her memory will remain through her effortless work and support in radiography and education throughout the years.
She will be greatly missed.
May she rest in peace.
My deepest condolences to all they loved her
Immortal in her work.

It is the passing of an era. In many ways she was the heart and soul of the ISRRT for its first twenty years or so, working hard to realise the dream of Kitty Clark. Although Marion was not outwardly a religious person, she was a friend to everyone and practiced the main tenants of all religions in her generosity, values, friendship, respect, and commitment to the good of all, regardless of stature, wealth, race or creed. She will be sorely missed by the radiological profession but also by all with whom she came in contact. An outstanding example to us all.
Please add my condolences to her family, who were always so very close to her heart.
Terry West, Canada
You have certainly captured "Marion" in your comments, Terry, and there is no question about the "passing of an era". She was known throughout the world by most radiographers and also by so many others. She really did touch many, many lives and influenced so many people. It will not be the same without her. She leaves a void that will be hard, if not impossible, to fill.
Shirley Hundvig, Canada
It is indeed a sad day for the ISRRT community for Marion was a wonderful role model for all of us and contributed so very much to our profession. I did have the pleasure and honour of meeting her on one occasion.
Please extend my condolences.
Mary Jon Lachance, Canada
My sincere condolence. Marion was my teacher, mentor and friend.
She was a great lady who sacrifice all for international radiography.
I remember giving a business class ticket to fly from London to Singapore and a suite at Westin Stamford hotel for the 10th ISRRT World Congress. She took the airfare to sponsor 3 radiographers from Africa and accommodate 6 participants in the suite. She stayed at a budget hotel nearby The Westin.
Marion Rest in Peace. You have fought the great fight.

Marion. She will remain very alive in our memories and admiration."
Marion will be sadly missed by all in the Society, she was always happy to advise and support us, when required.
Marion will not only be missed by our Society but by all that where involved with her. We are sure she leaves an empty gap with the ISRRT and many other International Radiography Societies.
