September 13, 1932 – May 3, 2019
Frances Nell Commons of Reston, Virginia passed away peacefully on Friday, May 3, 2019. Born on September 13, 1932, she was the only child of the late Earl Moore and Sarah Estelle Wilder.
After spending her formative years in Fairhope, Alabama and Shreveport, Louisiana, Fran met and married “Buz”, as he was lovingly known to all who knew him, in Enid, Oklahoma where he was stationed at Vance Air Force Base. They enjoyed 62 years of marriage stationed throughout the United States and Canada, ultimately relocating to the Washington, D.C. area in 1964 when Buz retired from the United States Air Force. Fran had a love for books and was a voracious reader with particular interest in history and politics. She had a quick wit, a wicked sense of humor
