Frances is remembered by her family in the following tribute -
Mom, you will always live deep in our hearts and our loss is heaven’s gain. Mom is no longer in pain and she can walk again, able to see and hear perfectly. She is visiting with her brothers & sisters and their spouses up in heaven now.
I remember Mom talking to her sister, Anne Mraz on the phone for hours. They were laughing and gossiping just like they were talking over the white picket fence you see in movies.
Mom loved her flower garden and would never pass up an opportunity to stop at a nursery to buy perennials in bright colors. She had a green thumb, for sure.
Mom loved to decorate the house at Christmas and took pride in wrapping her gifts with fancy bows and pretty paper. She loved to cook up festive holiday meals for all of us. Her sweet potato casserole with melted marshmallows was the best!
Mom sewed me so many pretty dresses over many years and she told me she learned to sew from a class she took downtown after she finished work at her job at White Motors. Her sewing abilities were absolutely perfect, and I loved every dress she made for me.
She was also a kind and loving grandmother and enjoyed when her grandkids & great-grandchildren would visit. Her grandchildren have happy memories of sleeping in Oxford’s upstairs in cozy beds. They could always look forward to a trip to Marc’s and then over to PetSmart to look at the animals available for adoption.
I miss you, Mom.
