My memories of my Aunt Frances are seeing her, my Uncle Gilbert, cousins Sandra and Theresa at our family gatherings. It was always a pleasure to see them. They looked like the perfect family. Always well dressed and happy. I didn’t see them as often as we didn’t live close to each other and of course back in the day, we were too young to drive. Aunt Frances was a beautiful woman and obviously a wonderful mother as my cousin Sandra has grown into a beautiful woman with a beautiful and caring soul. We’ll miss you Aunt Frances! Love you!! ❤️❤️❤️

Ms.Francis was a dear friend. She was more than that, she was an angel on Earth. Everbody at Milroy Park loved her. We truly enjoyed her company and the stories she'd share. She was always smiling and always offered her help in arts and crafts. She loved to play Skip Bo cards and Train. Ms.Francis you always will be in my heart.

I have so many good memories as being part of the Valles family and also the Deluxe family we shared. You always opened your heart and your home to share your specialty meals.
I can't thank you enough for sharing your recipes. I still have some of the crafts you made and will be forever treasured. Forever in our hearts love Liz and Russ.

I remember Frances always being at the various craft fairs and church bazaars. She made many beautiful things. I also remember how her face would break into a smile - a big, beautiful smile.

Frances was like the Mom for everyone. I worked with her at Deluxe. I remember going over to her house to eat. I met her daughters and even hung out with them. She will be missed.
