Frances died peacefully Monday, July 1, 2019. She was born in Marion, S.C., to the late Ben and Mary Evelyn Gainey. She was a loving wife and mother, enjoying 65 years of marriage to her husband, William. She had a gentle, quiet spirit and spent most of her time caring for her home and family. Her eyes lit up when she spoke of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren as her family gave her much joy. Her gentle spirit will be sorely missed.

Gainey; and sister, Marilyn Morgan.

Frances was predeceased by her son, David D. Garner and her brothers, John A. Gainey, Donnie D. Gainey, George C. Gainey, Eugene E. Gainey and Robert K. Gainey.
