Frances Webb Greenwood
January 4, 1922 – May 4, 2019
Mary “Frances” Greenwood, 97, passes peacefully to heaven on May 4, 2019. Frances, as she was known to all her friends and family, was born in Homestead Florida on January 4, 1922. She was the oldest of 5 children and, in 1940, married her high school sweetheart, Lueben Greenwood . They lived in Miami for 25 years where they raised their 2 daughters. In the 1965 they moved to Tallahassee, Florida. Frances was the administrative Assistant to the head of the language department at the Florida State Department of Education. Upon retirement, they moved to Pensacola Florida.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 70 years, and all of her younger siblings and their spouses.
She leaves behind her 2 daughters, Karen Couch and Diane Tillman, 5 grandchildren, 7great grandchildren and 1 great, great grandchild.
She was truly the matriarch of her family…a smart, ambitious, loving, high spirited woman...and as anyone who knew her would tell you…she loved to play cards. We give a heartfelt thank you to all of her caregivers over the last years of her life. And to the employees of Summer Vista. Our gratitude would be incomplete without acknowledging the wonderful care and support given to her by Emerald Coast Hospice.
Leuben Greenwood (Husband)
Karen Couch (Daughter)
Diane Tillman (Daughter
She also leaves behind 5 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchildren.

I played Rummy, got pancakes & BACON and carried on with Ms Frances! I think my favorite times were when her feisty side would come out. Like the BLT at summer Vista that day they didn't have tomatoes...she said "their BLTs are pitsville!" as she gave a thumbs down!
Seeing her face as she played that last card that won the Rummy game with delight! The last day I sat with her, she called me over to her bed and asked me to help her, then said she needed an 8!! I'm sure she was dreaming of cards!
She even gave me a special Christmas gift by touching my arm & telling me how much she appreciated my kindness to her! That will remain in my heart as a special treasure!
I will miss her!
