They lived in Litchfield where the girls grew up, went to high school, met their spouses and started their families.

Frances worked as an undergarment seamstress and then started with Valley National Bank who was bought out by Chase Bank from which she retired after 36 years as a Branch Assistant Manager. Frances worked in many different departments at the bank including collections, Repossession (one of her favorites that she liked to tell stories of being one of first women in this department working alongside men and cleverly repo'ing vehicles), many years as a Loan Officer and Assistant Manager where she managed many employees and shared her developed skills and strengths to the newer employees learning loans and general banking skills.

Frances retired at age 62 and enjoyed her kids, grandkids, taking care of her home, cooking and baking good food and desserts, shopping and watching her favorite reality shows: Property Brothers, Love it or List It, Antique Roadshow. Frances was loving, kind, hardworking, smart, practical and was proud of her accomplishments. Her children are proud of their mom and know she lived her life well and wanted only the best for each of them. Frances will be sorely missed. Till we meet again in Heaven.

Aunt Frances was always so loving and kind. I enjoyed visiting with her. When I spoke with her on phone she said she was 80 but she still had to keep them all in line. She truly was one of a kind.
Dear family, I will keep you in my prayers.
