Throughout her life, Frances McNatt was a lot of different things to a lot of different people. She was a caring mother to her only son Jamie, a loving grandmother to Andy, James “Lake” and Mary Frances, a loyal sister to Pauline, Deenie and PeeWee, a wonderful aunt to her nieces and nephews, and finally, a devoted wife to the most important man in her life. No matter what role Frances played in your life, she did a perfect job, always brightening the room with her smile and laughter. She loved the outdoors and taught her grandkids how to garden and fish. She also taught them to drive long before they had a license! She will be reuniting with her beloved son Jamie, her sister Peewee, her parents Chester and Ima Lavern Cox, and many other family members who will be overjoyed to see her enter the gates of Heaven. She leaves behind her husband, Dr. James Kenneth McNatt, three grandchildren, daughter-in law, Wendy McNatt, and numerous beloved nieces and nephews. Frances also leaves behind the Webb family - Kirk, Stacey, Maggie and Emmy- who she loved like her own. Frances will be greatly missed by her family and friends. Grandma McNatt made the sun shine brighter!
