I am saddened by the loss of Fran and send my condolences to her beloved family. Fran was warm and caring and led her life with grace, compassion, and most of all, kindness. She was an exemplary Master Gardener who loved the World and nature. Fran will forever be missed.

One of the highlights of my time in "master gardeners" was having the friendship of Fran. The "Bug lady" will be sorely missed.

Such a lovely lady with a beautiful heart. Always smiling & kind to everyone. Fran will be missed. The little rooted side shoot Viburnum tomentosum she gifted me years ago is now 8’ tall & blooms so beautifully every year like a cloud of white flowers. I think of her when I see it out my window & smile. I suspect she’s still tending a most beautiful garden. Much love & aloha to Ed & family.

I am so sorry to hear of Fran’s passing. She was always a delightful and very talented person. I first met her while working at Cotton Pickins‘, and was happy to be able to work with her again as Geauga County Master Gardener Volunteers. She shared her amazing, miniature recreation of the Cotton Pickins’ store. She captured everything- right down to the yellow bags! I will miss her and her ever present smile.

I graduated from Lexington High School with Frances. We were both on the student council. Before that I recall many times at her house at VMI and parties at homes of our friends. I have wonderful memories of growing up in Lexington in the 50s. Frances was a part of those memories. She was a wonderful friend and grand lady, a blessing to many.

I know this is a difficult time, but my thoughts are with you and your family as you grieve. I remember Fran fondly from our early days at your house on Music Street, all our kiddie birthday parties and Fourth of July barn parties to her kindness every time I ran into her. She always made me feel so special!! Wishing you comfort and remembering the kind spirit that was your mom.

Frances and Brooke and their family are very dear to me as our former neighbors, playmates and friends of many years from the VMI days. Frances was one of my bridesmaids. My mother counted her among three of Lexington beauties under 20. I have been very concerned about her these last years and Brook has kept me informed. I cherish those memories and have always been interested in her family. What a lovely person! Sadly, “Binnie”
