She will certainly be missed. Started out in her kindergarten class at First Methodist Church. She was such a joy and that held true throughout her whole life. She was a good friend to daddy over the past few years after they both lost their spouses. She alway showed the love of Christ!!! I know she is enjoying Heaven. There will never be a doubt that she is there!! Sandra Marshall Cifelli

Frances was such a good and sweet lady. She and mom (Mildred Huffman) were best of friends all through school and and all through life. I took mom and Frances to the mountains several years in th Fall to see the Autumn leaves and for lunch before we had to put mom in a nursing home. Love you Frances you will surely be missed. You and mom behave in heaven. I can see the smile on both of your faces.

I loved Miss Frances so much. I was glad to see her recently. Pretty sure i never saw her without a smile and she always cracked me up. Funny funny lady. Loved to laugh. (All my love to you, Brenda!)
