Funeral services will be held at 11:00 on Wednesday September 7, 2011 at Leak Memory Chapel. Frances met her beloved Hugh when she was 17 at the First Baptist Church of Montgomery. A year or so later they were married and would be together almost 70 years. Frances loved to travel, play bridge and read. As an Army officers wife she didn't always get to go where she would have wanted to, but always thought it was an adventure. In retirement Frances and Hugh would get to travel where they wanted and they saw the world together hand-in- hand. She loved her bridge club and over the years had made fast friendships that would last a lifetime. Moving back to Montgomery Frances and Hugh once again attended the First Baptist Church where they had met so many years before. Becoming active members of the church they would see the country with their senior's class. She loved the fellowships and friends she made there. Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend she will be missed, but will remain in our hearts forever. Leak Memory Chapel Directing www.leak-mc.com
