Frances was a long time neighbor and a very dear friend of mine. She taught me how to crochet. She was also a great inspiration for me. A very awesome lady. I will always remember her. Rest in Peace, Frances.

“Gram” was an exceptional woman and role model. I met her many, many years ago and loved her ever since. My grandmom in law. She had a fierce love for her family, of which everyone was welcome and not forgotten. Her cooking, and memories she shared will never be rivalled. To her family, my prayers are with you all.

Frances was an amazing person. Whenever we had the pleasure to be visiting with her at Rita’s home, she was so full of life and certainly I have been very blessed to have known her over my years of working with Rita. I know she will be missed by her family and all who knew her. God bless you Francis. Love Frank & Mary

I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Frances passing. I was very close to her for many years. She was a bright, loving and wonderful person. Her family was the center of her life. I will always remember her kindness and her laugh- when she laughed, it was like being in my grandmother's presence again. She is at last with her "Iggy" again and entertaining the angels.

Love Jenny, John, Mark, Daria, Aurelia, & Becky

Holding on to all the love and memories Gram/Memaw gave to us. She will always be in our hearts.
