She was the best! I remember her as caring and happy to be a teacher. Prayers of comfort for your family.Michele (Walker) Reynolds
I had the privilege of knowing Mary Frances from first through twelth grade. We both were from Draper and enjoyed our youth there. She was always a happy person with a smile on here face, and I never heard a mean comment about anyone. She was sweet and humble with a true servant's heart. I talked with her a few times over the last 10 or 15 years about coming to our class reunion, but I was neverv siuccessful in getting her to attend any of the reunions. I can only offer my deepest sympathies to her family and my prayers that God will bring you comfort during this difficult time. May God bless you all.Butch Carpenter
I am very sorry to hear of Mary Frances passing. I first knew her in elementary school and as a playmate while I lived those early years in Draper. She was a kind, sweet person.
My condolences to her family and friends.
