Frances was born on February 23, 1930, in Emory, to Eli and Sally
Allred. She was a one-of-a-kind lady! She worked many years in
Dallas before retiring to Emory to raise her sons, Paul and David, in
the country. Frances continued to worked several years as secretary
for Lake Fork Reservoir. Later, she worked another 10-12 years as
secretary for the Justice of Peace, Cobb Stuart. She was a member of
Emory Baptist Church. She loved her morning Bible Study and she loved
the Lord with all her heart. “She was a great cook” remembers Paul and
David, “We always had a wonderful Thanksgiving, just the three of us,
and whatever dog we had at the time”. She was a good Mom. She was
also famous for her canned apples apple pie, the recipe was on the
can, but no one could make it like her! She loved to dress real nice
and to wear her “BLING”! She liked to be fixed up pretty, head to

During her years at Senior Care of Lake Pointe she got up every
morning, got dressed and ready and went to Bible Study. She became
somewhat of a celebrity at Senior Care. Some called her Marilyn
Monroe…probably because of the hair. She had a natural talent for
painting, which she loved, and gave her great pleasure during her
later years. Everyone wanted her to paint something for them. She
also made the cover for a brochure in advertisement of the Senior Care
of Lake Pointe, also, used on their website. Everyone at the facility
loved her including the cooks, the housekeeping department, as well
as, the nursing staff and the doctors. She enjoyed the attention and
love and was quick to return her love to everyone.
