Georgia, in the College of Family and Consumer Sciences. She was a life-long educator and retired from
Lanier Technical College. She was a member of the First Methodist Church of Gainesville and active in
the Beacon Group. She was a very active member of the Gainesville community until she moved to
Alpharetta in 2018 to be close to her daughter.

She was an amazing Mother and a fantastic Grandmother who spent many days playing games, hosting
their friends at the lake, and cooking many of their favorite foods. Frances had a wonderful love of
travel and saw the USA with Buck in their motorhome. She traveled the world, enjoyed many cruises,
and loved spending time with friends playing canasta, looking for antiques, gardening, and cooking
many meals. She also had many talents such as sewing and crafting. Her family and friends will always
cherish her “award-winning” smile and her gracious hospitality to others.

Our family expresses gratitude to our wonderful caregiver Cornelia Breary, and to the staff of Mayfield
Oaks Personal Care Home in Alpharetta for their loving care.
