I sure did look forward to every Thursday when I had the privilege of bringing Francis lunch !! Her and I would chat up a storm. We laughed and truly enjoyed eachothers company. She asked about my family every single time I saw her, such a caring and loving soul. After we chatted and it was time for me to go we gave eachother a hug and both said cheerfully " I Love You " with a big smile. I feel so lucky that I knew her, and I will always remember our times together. "Love you Francis " !! Thursday's will never be the same. Jackie

I played bunco with Frances 30 years ago. We always had a great time and not oh boy could she cook. When I worked at Hair Review in the same shopping center as the key market she fed me lunch daily.
Years later I would see her at Kroger but I always knew it was her before I saw her face as she always smelled so good in her favorite perfume!
She was the nicest woman I have ever known and she will be truly missed by many!

When I worked at Kaelins Trackside Restaurant in Lagrange, Frances and Phyllis was my second mom. They knew more about me than my own mom. She will be highly missed. We had so much fun working together!!

Miss Francis will always be a mother to our family. She treated us just like her own kids and would always call and check on us. Such a blessing to know her and OH My what a great cook. Macaroni & Cheese expert!! One of God’s angels has come home. We love you Miss Francis and you will truly be missed.

Francis was always a bright light with her contagious smile, bubbly laughter, and pristine personality. A true angel on earth; serving her Lord with her actions and love for all whom she knew. One of those wonderful people who never met a stranger and helped someone every chance she could! We will miss her humor, laughter, love and fellowship at our monthly LIFT Luncheon! She always left with a great big hug and a smile on her face and when I would say, "See you Next month." She'd always say, "Lord Willing!" I feel immensely blessed to have had Francis in my life.

Heaven is a happy place having you as an angel. When we moved here you were the kindest most loving person to us. I so enjoyed the lunches we shared and will definitely miss your hugs. You truly were Covenant Methodist Church.

You will be missed by so many,
