Francis was a loving caring woman. She loved everyone. She was making my son Joey Greene a quilt that she will never finish of Dale Earnhardt. She asked me if she could do it because she loved Joey (Joey is special needs). I will miss her living soul

Brian, Donavon, and family I'm sorry for your loss. Frances was a very sweet, kind, and a Godly person. She always went out of her way to say hey and always ask me how my back was doing. Heaven gained another angel. She will be missed, but never forgotten
