Dr. Fanny Plucker

Artist: Heather Ring, Mural: 7, Partially Funded by Dr. Paulette DeWeerd, Completed: 2003

Dr. Fanny Plucker served as a doctor-chiropractor & sometimes veterinarian during World War II; while men were off fighting the war.

Here is another mural painted where there were once abandoned windows. Heather painted this four-panel mural in 2003. The subject, Dr. Fanny Plucker was a female chiropractor, in the days when medical professions were dominated by men. The mural is sponsored by our modern-day female chiropractor, Dr. Paulette De Weerd. Incidentally, according to the address, Dr. Plucker's office was above what is now the east half of the Flower Village store.
