Frances Louise Adams Aldridge

Amory - Frances Louise Adams Aldridge passed away on Saturday, April 18, 2020 at Oaktree Manor Assisted Living Center, Amory, MS. Born on April 13, 1930, in Quincy, Mississippi, she was a daughter of Andrew Washington and Leona McCulla Adams.

She grew up in a large family in the Quincy Community. She was the first in her family to graduate from Greenwood Springs High School with the class of 1949. She met the love of her life, Doyle Aldridge and together they were blessed by God with four children. Frances was a strong willed, devoted wife and loving mother. In addition to being a successful homemaker for her large family, she also worked at Amory Garment from 1962 until 1995. She was Baptist and had a servant heart.

Family meant everything to her, and she loved seeing them as often as possible. She loved cooking for her family and spending precious time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren. In her free time, she liked to be with some of her closest friends including Laverne Williams and Mildred Ritter. An independent woman, Frances liked to garden, read, and she even mowed the yard until she was 86. When she became a resident of Oaktree Assisted Living, she happily started a walking group and played dominos nightly.

Her family and friends are grateful for the legacy she left behind for them to reflect on and follow. They look forward to the day when they will reunite with her and until then, they will cherish their wonderful memories.
