Watts and Morris Watts; sisters-in-law, Cathy Reeves, Mardi Sinnreich, and Susie Bryan.

Frances was a Christian and long-time member of the Assembly of God Church in Johntown, then Bogata when the church was moved. She loved the Lord and her church.

She was raised in the Cunningham, then Johntown area. As a teenager, she enjoyed going to house parties with her friends; among her closest friends was Joyce Watts Wagner and Robbie Jean Cooper McLauglin, and Dan Cotton.

Frances retired from VF Corporation in Sulphur Springs, Texas. She was also a seamstress and did sewing for the public. She was the sweetest person you’d ever meet, and always had a smile on her face no matter what. She loved family and friends, and had an especially close relationship with Ran. No matter where she was, he was right there. She loved her “boy” Donny as she called him.

She wanted everyone happy and close to the Lord. She enjoyed cooking; without fail, if you ever went to “Mamaws” she always had something cooked.

In her final weeks of life she was cared for by the ones who meant the most to her: Donny, Ran, and Mary.

She knew she was going to be okay soon and that she was going to Heaven to be with her Savior where she would no longer be blind; she was ready to go home.
