OBITUARY

Frances L Culpepper

May 18, 1946October 5, 2019

Frances was an angel sent from heaven. She had a heart that God only gives a select few. She was a guardian angel here on earth and is now a guardian angel in heaven. She had a smile that lit up a room and the most beautiful blonde bouffant hair that you could pick out from a crowd. The holding of her hand was comfort, her hugs felt like home. Frances and Bob recently celebrated 43 years of marriage on September 30th. The love they shared even in the worst of situations was awe inspiring. Frances was always there for her daughters. Whether it was church mom, scout leader, room mother, PTO president, choir mom, yearbook mom, dance mom or drill team mom. She was even given her own key to the girl’s elementary school because of all the time she spent working there. Frances went around telling everyone Robin, her youngest, was her clone. But of course, being so little, Robin thought her mother said cologne and often wondered why her mommy would want to smell like her? Frances was the first one her daughters called if they needed help, had good news, or just needed to talk. She was the first one to help pick up the pieces, organize a celebration, pick out décor, or to talk their ears off for two hours. She was the strongest women you would ever know. Holding down two or three jobs at a time while having arthritic knees that were bone to bone until finally retiring at 70 years old. She has been through may trials and tribulations in her life, but always came out the other side with a smile and a laugh that was so charming you would fall in love with her instantly. Two minutes in her presence and you would lover her for a life time. She fought and won over breast cancer in her sixties and fought as hard as she could with endometrial cancer in her seventies, but god has taken home his special angel. A mom full of warmth and compassion, a wife full of love and a woman to aspire to be like.

Frances and I met at Kolter Elementary about 33 years ago when my children started school there. I joined PTO and Melissa and Michelle our daughters became friends. Robin and my son Craig were in classes together. When Trick or Treating was banned in Houston, we worked on the Kolter Carnival Haunted House together. Frances was extremely creative and it was always fun working with her. She was President of PTO and I ran the Book Fair for 6 years. When my Book Fair Co-Chair could not be there to help me, Frances stopped everything she was doing and helped me out even when her Dad was ill. We had endless conversations on the phone even before we had cellphones. One Winter when our pipes burst it was Frances who called and gave me the contractor's name...he had remodeled her parents home and so she took me to see the work he had done and he did our work too. Considering that we didn't live in the same neighborhood some days you would have thought we were nextdoor neighbors. After the kids all graduated Frances and I still kept in touch but unfortunately didn't see each other very often. In recent years we messaged each other on Facebook...and we were always able to pick up where we left off. Frances was a very good friend and I will miss her dearly. Sincerely, Teri Goldfield

I have known Frances about 33 years. During this time I was her hairdresser as well as the family. She will sorely be missed as she was a very happy client and friend. I would remember her birthday and would treat her to a free haircut/blow-dry or make her a pair of earrings. She was grateful and would get a kick out of it. We became good friends and we had fun together all these years. I will miss you Frances but you will now celebrate your birthdays in heaven. Great place to be with your loved one gone before you! Love you girl RIP my dear friend! Love, Mona

I LOVE Frances and will MISS HER!!! We became friends when I would call my husband's office daily. Her friendly voice was always welcoming and her jolly personality was uplifting! We shared our love for "The Young and Restless" and emailed often.
Thank you, Frances, for being my friend! Love, Jeanie Stoller

Frances worked for me I think around 20 years at my CPA FIRM. She was a joy to work with, very devoted, never complained, and so loyal. When Frances joined me, she met Brenda Hellums, and they also became best friends to this day. I will miss Frances smile and her willingness to do anything I asked. When she worked for me, her computer user name was "Frances" and the password "Canary". That computer was moved home after she retired, so I see her name every day when I use it.

Also, my wife Jeanie and Frances loved the tv show "Young and Restless", and I heard countless conversations between them about the characters etc. I know Jeanie will miss Frances and those conversations. Frances was a wonderful person and I will miss her.

Frances and I grew up together on W. 39th Street and went through Garden Oaks, Black and Waltrip. Your mother and her parents were very dear people and had the sweetest dispositions. We reconnected during the past couple of years and I was aware of her illness. Through any of our communication, her conversations always included her husband and her daughters and her concerns for their well being. Her smile was serene and I'm happy to have been one of her friends.
