"Frances had been a member of the Taliesin Fellowship since joining in 1946. Prior to that she distinguished herself notably as Director of the Milwaukee Art Institute where she presented an exhibit featuring Frank Lloyd Wright.  She worked in Iran for three years in the early 1970s on three large Taliesin Architects projects. Frances was instrumental in developing flower gardens and restoring prairie habitat at Taliesin in Spring Green and was the author of numerous publications detailing gardening and Fellowship life with Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin. Originally raised in India, she was a graduate of Bryn Mawr College.  Frances was married to architect and Taliesin Fellow Stephen Nemtin for 54 years before he preceded her in death in 2013.  She is survived by her children Leslie Bisharat and Brian Lockhart."
