Frances was such a kind, warm and welcoming person. She did so much for her church, including the challenging task of Clerk of Session. I always admired her professional approach, yet warm smile. Brian and I are sorry we were unable to attend her memorial service, as we were out of town.

Frances was a kind & loving lady with a keen sense of humor. When Wayne & I joined Derita Presbyterian 30 years ago she was the Clerk of Session, so we got to know her pretty well and enjoyed working with her on so many projects & committees. Rest in peace sweet lady.

Aunt Frances was a wonderful lady! She brought fun and a smile everywhere she went, so sad to think she was the last sibling in her family but encouraging to know we will all see them again one day. She will be missed by her many nieces and nephews in Jonesville.

Frances was a member of the Charlotte, NC #121 chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction. She served on the board and also various committees during her time as a NAWIC Member. She always had a smile on her face anytime that I saw her. She was a sweet lady and will be missed by all.

Ms Frances was an absolute gem. We enjoyed her so much in Sunday School and if you ask her how she was doing, she’d always say, “well pretty good with what I got to work with”. She loved being outside working in the yard and always had a beautiful smile for everyone. We will surely miss you Ms Frances. Much love and prayers for the family.
