Frances was a member of the Blueville United Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.
Frances had a passion for putting others needs before her own and had a wonderful sense of humor that would always make you laugh. She was a master at needle point and quilt projects and has made well over 100 quilts in her life for all that she knew would appreciate them. Her faith and her strength through God made her one the strongest woman that we had the privilege of calling Mom. We all know that she is sitting with our dad looking down on all of us keeping us safe.
