Francile Foote Ehricht ’41

December 23, 2013

Francile Foote Ehricht dated her future husband, John Ehricht, in their senior year at SMU. She remembers Snider Hall, the just-completed Fondren Library and the Commerce School, housed in a prefab building behind Dallas Hall. John became a partner at Main Hurdman CPA, and Francile taught Latin and English in Richardson (TX) schools, followed by 14 years at the Hockaday School and six years at the Episcopal School of Dallas. She retired in 1984, and in 1986 following John’s retirement, they moved to Baton Rouge to be near their son and his family. Since John’s death, she has maintained her independence, still in her home. She recalls her years at SMU fondly and enjoys hearing about the University’s 100-year celebration.
