Jonie first visited Providence when her eldest daughter was just 4 years old and left the visit convinced that Providence was a perfect fit for her family. She encourages other parents to consider: “If someone other than you will influence your child for several hours a day, who do you want that to be?” She and her husband, Darrin, have been blessed to be part of the Providence community since 2005. Their two daughters are proud Providence alumni, and their son is in the secondary school.
Although a Michigan native, Jonie has lived in the Seattle area for 35 years, and loves to call the Pacific Northwest home. Her favorite days are spent baking pies, serving her family, getting lost in a good book, and being outspoken about the crowded kindnesses of God in her daily life.
The Frenches are members of Heritage Baptist Church in Lynnwood.
