We at the Humane Society of McCormick County, Inc. send our sympathy to the Lewis family. Miss Frances as we called her at the Humane Society garage store in town always welcomed her visits. She always had a smile, a bit of conversation, too and was so happy to be out "shopping" with her niece. She will be remembered with fond memories. A wonderful lady, who accomplished great things in her life.

we will always remember Frances: her sweet smile - even when she was in pain - on Sundays at church, her reaching out to people who needed to be recognized or encouraged. Through the years she was a faithful friend to many in our community. We are thankful and will miss her very much. We love you Frances.
