So sorry to hear of the loss of a great southern lady! I worked for Frances as a relief teller for 14 years and loved every day of it. She taught me so much in her words and also by being a great example for a young girl to look up too.
Again, so sorry for your loss.

My buddy Frances! I am so blessed to count you among my friends. Your great love and service for PPC was inspiring... making the Communion bread loaves, keeping the Lunch Bunch in stitches and such a blessing to my family and me. My Mom Charline Watson and my daughter Hallie send you love as well. Tell Daniel “hi” for me! Love always, Lynn Woodward

I enjoyed the times when I saw Ms. Watts at dogwood I loved hearing her stories of her childhood and how she got her job and just love living life. I also enjoyed meeting her family and the privilege of helping and being a caregiver in their time of need.
