Mrs.Frances Ann Seckler Jestes, 60, of Chapel Hill, NC went home to be with God on August 14th, 2011 after a courageous fight with melanoma cancer at Beacon Place in Greensboro. Born June 25th, 1951 in Guilford County, Ann was the oldest of four daughters of William Francis Seckler and Grace Ann Seckler. She attended High Point City Schools and obtained an education degree from Appalachian State University.
