She loved shopping in Waynesville and loved giving gifts to her grandchildren. Fran was extremely passionate about her family, and her Kentucky Wildcats basketball team. She never missed her son's sporting events, traveling all over the U.S. to watch Greg play college football, and in stadiums, and gyms all over the Dayton Region. Thanks to her son, Steven, who drove her

everywhere; Grandma Fran attended as many of her grandkids sporting events as possible. She was a tremendous cook, especially of desserts. Her hummingbird cake, special K

cookies, and carrot cake were award winning, and if you ever left Fran's house hungry, you were the one to blame. Fran was a country girl at heart, and extremely passionate about her family, a loving mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend. At this time, no services will be held, but likely a Spring event to celebrate Fran's incredible life.
