Frances Craig Obituary

Frances A. Craig, of Farmersville, OH.,  passed peacefully with her family by her side on Sunday, May 14, 2023. She was born to Harvey and Grace (Hawk) Bell in Hamilton, OH on June 29, 1941.

What is there to say about Frances? For starters she was the Yahtzee champion of the Craig household, enjoyed puzzles, board games, and solving puzzles. She loved gardening and was very proud of her flowers and yard. She enjoyed square dancing with her husband, liked birdwatching and just enjoyed being outside. Frances was a proud member of Farmersville United Church of Christ. She was the best cook and baker, and even had numerous ribbons from the county fair for her sweet treats, especially her butterscotch refrigerator cookies (that recipe she kept classified). More than anything though, she enjoyed spending time with her grandkids and family. She will be deeply missed by those who knew her.

Frances is preceded in death by her parents, and her brother; Tony Bell. She is survived by her loving husband of 61 years; Richard Craig, children; Susan (Carlos) Nash, Sheila Grubb, and Eric (Chrissy) Craig, her grandchildren; Rodney (Erika)& Jesse Nash,  Sarah, Tyler (Autumn) & Emily Grubb, her grandpups; Barley, Copper and Joey, along with numerous friends and extended family.
