OBITUARY

Frances Clark Hough

August 10, 1933October 21, 2019

Frances C. Hough, 86, of Macon, GA went home on October 21, 2019.

She was born in Macon on August 10, 1933 to the late Robert and Ophelia Clark. She is survived by her husband of 69 years, Frank Hough, and her daughter, Sylvia (Bobby) Tucker; grandchildren, Jamie Hough, Shannon (Leslie) Hough, Kasey (Keith) Young, Chris Jones, Amanda (Rodney) Vaughn, Joshua (Christy) Tucker, several great grandchildren, and her step-sister June. She is preceded in death by three children; Steven Hough, Mickey Hough, and Dorothy Jones; siblings, "Sister," "Bubba," Sue, Irma, Marjorie, Tommy, "Millie," and "C.B."; step-brother Donald, and step-mother Eudell.

Fran lovingly raised her 4 children and worked 30 years as a crossing guard at Burghard Elementary. She put in many volunteer hours between shifts, made countless friends along the way, and loved each student as if they were her own. She saw someone she knew everywhere she went, and she never met a stranger. Virtually everyone called her "Noona," a beloved nickname from her grandkids.

Her interests were wide-reaching; she loved drawing, camping, and decorating for the holidays. Her shelves were lined with trinkets and heirlooms, including far too many bells and roosters to count. She even collected rocks from around the globe.

If anything can be said of Frances, she was genuinely good-natured. She hummed to herself, welcomed all who came through the door, and gladly helped anyone as needed. She had “in” jokes and silly remarks for every occasion. She was also the queen of back-handed compliments. Her phone calls were rarely shorter than an hour, and we wouldn't have wanted it any other way. If you knew her, you would never forget her. She was our sunshine.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Beverly Knight Olson Children's Hospital, Navicent Health, 777 Hemlock Street, MSC 78, Macon, GA 31201.

A visitation will be held October 23 at Snow's Memorial Chapel on 746 Cherry St between 6 and 8 PM.

Soooo many memories of our sweet Aunt Fran. One stands out - when Halloween rolled around each year, we would travel to the “city” where Aunt Frances & Uncle Frank lived so we could go trick-or-treating. She instructed us, though, that we go around the neighborhood and sing a little jingle. So she taught it to us, and we sang it at every house. It went like this: “Trick or treat, smell my feet, BML can’t be beat!” You see, Uncle Frank worked at WBML radio so she wanted us to help promote it.....and we faithfully did! I have many other memories of this sweet lady who could make you laugh no matter what kind of mood you were in! She will be missed ❤️
