She also cherished a special event with her Ackerman High School graduating classmates, including the then U. S. Secretary of State Ray Mabus (also once our MS governor) for the christening of the USNS Choctaw County ship at the Austal USA shipyard in Mobile, AL. Fran also loved making all of the family wreaths for the memorial days at the family cemeteries. Last, but not least, she loved Ole MS football!!!
