Frances was born on September 25, 1940 in Stephenville to the late Elmer and Alma Mae Johnson. She was the second child, eldest brother, Ralph followed by younger siblings, Martha, Emma, and Sherrie. Frances went to school in Selden where she was an active member of the basketball team. She loved spending time on the water boating with family and friends, and also had a love for training horses. Frances owned and operated a dairy for over a decade, and owned B&F Trucking for an extended period though out this time as well.
Frances decided to follow her passion and open Selden Upholstery which she tirelessly worked until October 2022. Frances remained in Stephenville where she actively helped support her community in many aspects including being a caretaker for multiple families for over 25 years. She then decided to spend some time traveling the country side with her sister for 4 years, seeing the great lands.
The only thing that could bring her back was the love of her great grandchildren whom she enjoyed spending time with. From watching them play sports to watching them race, she was their loudest cheerleader, and proudest supporter.
