Frances grew up Monroe County in a big family. She grew up Pentecostal and loved God. She was a woman who was full of life, strong and independent. Frances never met a stranger and once one made friends with her, she was your friend for life. Frances worked at Walmart for many years in multiple positions, providing for her family. Recently she was working at the Money Center in Walmart and she obtained her Notary License. Frances was blessed by God with four children and four grandchildren who brought her so much joy. She loved her family fiercely and was protective of them. In her free time, Frances loved to celebrate all Holidays, any reason to gather with friends and family and enjoy good fellowship. Some of her closest friends were Julie, Faye, Sheila, Sherry, and Cassandra. At work she also made many friends and built good relationships with regular customers. Frances liked to listen to many different types of music including Country and R&B. She liked working crossword puzzles, sitting in the pool, and just hanging out with her grandkids. Her loving presence will be missed greatly by all that knew and loved her. The memories made with her through the years will be cherished forever.
