Our deepest sympathy to Frances family. I have always known the family since I was very young. I babysitted for the kids and watched them grow up. Many memories to have and so very sad to learn of your mother's passing. Great lady-very funny--friendly-loving and never knew a stranger. Shall always remember her. With sincere sympathy, Lorenda (Schnarr) and Alvin Spilker. God bless you all.

Heaven has gained an angel. I'm sure my grandpa is already teasing her. Sympathy & prayers for all of you.

Sending our love and prayers.... She was a kind and loving woman.  I will never forget the kindness and love that she bestowed upon my mother, Rachel Hilton, when she was sick.  My mother always felt at home with her as she would greet us with a big southern hug. Upon leaving; it was always a big kiss and  “I love you Rachel”.  Even though my mother was sick she still had enough cognition to know that she had a experienced a few hours with someone who truly loved her.  May God give you an extra crown for your kindness here on earth.  It warms my heart to think of these two southern girls in heaven together.   You have lived well my sweet Aunt Frances. You will always have a special place in my heat. Prayers for you all. ??
