The staff and participants of the Granville County Senior Center will dearly miss the daily presence of Mrs. Frances Jones. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face and her exceptional sense of humor kept everyone laughing. We all feel fortunate that we were able to get to know her, spend time with her, and hear about how much she loved her Charlie.

Condolence from Leslsie & Prreston Johnson on December 3rd, 2014 9:34 am

It was a pleasure to have lived across the street from Frances. We will miss seeing her out for her regular walks, smiling and speaking to all see saw. She will always be missed by her neighbors.
