July 16, 1920 - August 30, 2014
Frances was born in Charlotte, NC on July 16, 1920 as the youngest daughter to the late Sallie S. Falls and Robert B. Falls.
Frances is survived by her daughter, Patricia (Patsy) M. Atkinson and her partner, James B. (JB) Morrow; grandchildren, Jeffrey (Jeff) D. McSwain, Carrie M. Hartsell and her husband, Jared Hartsell; Pat's wife and mother of his children, Debbie M. Lee; sister-in-law, Kay M. Starnes (who has always been more loving and dedicated than any sister); brother-in-law, DeVon McSwain; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Frances retired -- as Church Secretary -- from her much loved church, St. Martin's Episcopal Church, in June 1989, after thirty-three years of part- and full-time. Frances was a warm, caring, intelligent woman who made a significant and loving impact on all that knew her. She will be deeply missed by her family and many friends, but will always be held lovingly in our hearts and souls.
A memorial service will be held at St. Martin's Episcopal Church at 1510 East 7th Street in Charlotte, NC on Friday, September 5, 2014 at 11:00 am with the Rev. Becky Michelfelder officiating. The service will be followed by a visitation at the Church. Burial will be at Charlotte Memorial Gardens next to her loving husband.
