Frances was a beautiful, gentle person who especially treasured her large family and her faith. She loved playing bridge, auction, the seashore and the piano. The Robins' Return was one of her favourites. Frances welcomed all with her smile and endeared them with her sense of humour and kindness, always putting others first. She will be missed by all who knew her.
