Frances influenced many generations through her business of Greenfield Day Care and Nursery School which she owned and operated for many years out of her home until her retirement in 1995. She then continued to babysit and care for children many years after closing the daycare. She loved spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a long-time member of the First Baptist Church in Greenfield. Frances was an avid Tiger fan and you could find her sitting on the hillside cheering on the football boys many Friday nights with her siblings.
