Mary Frances was such a delightful friend who did not hesitate to join my mom on adventures out to eat or go line dancing. We would make sure to call her when I was in town to visit. I loved listening to her stories about her family and the rich history of things she had seen through her life in Dallas. She had the best stories to tell and had a skill for painting a vivid picture of the world. We treasured her as a friend and will miss her company.

Aunt Mary will be missed by many.She was so proud of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Each time I spoke with her she gave me a detailed update about what each of you had been up to and any plans for the future that you may have had. I'm sure she is up in heaven dancing up a storm.

I feel a hole in my heart. Mary Frances was a very dear friend and mentor when I started in the business world. She took me under her wing and treated me like part of her family. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of her family. She will be dearly missed on this earth. Her laugh was contagious and heart warming. I loved her dearly. Proverbs 31:29. God now has an angel on high! All my love, Leslie Mitchell Turner.
