Frances was an influence on many, many poeples lives.  Age is no boundry of those who loved her - including small children and seasoned citizens and everyone in between. I know that I am a better person because I knew her. Some of my fondest memories are of working with Frances in the kitchen at Antwerp United Methodist church.  And of course, we sometimes got into trouble together.  When my husband, Harold, had his first heart attack, I was working with her at the church when I got the news and she was the first to offer help.  She was a crafty lady - introduced me to the glue-gun.  To know Frances was to love her.

I remember how Frances Mae was loved by Irvin''s mother, Alta Starry.  When Irvin and I were first married Frances used to come visit often.  She was a sweet lady.  We saw her this past year at Don Starry''s funeral.  God bless you and comfort you in the days ahead.
