Frances will be missed by many. When we joined Sevier Heights in 1989, Frances was among those who welcomed us. Her kind words and easy smile were always such a blessing. I shall cherish my fond memories of this very special lady until we meet again.

Dear Family,
We are so sorry to hear about Frances. She was a very sweet and kind lady who always smiled at you when you passed her in the hallway at church. May God comfort you in your loss during this sad time and in the days ahead. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

We have lost one of the kindest and most precious women. Worshiping and praising God with her at Sevier Heights and in the choir was a true blessing. I will miss you sweet lady.

Dear Frances will be missed by me. She always asked me how my son was doing and kept up with his school and career. She had an encouraging word and smile for me every time I saw her. Heaven is gaining a sweet soul.
