In memory of
Frances Lee Love
Frances Lee Stinson Love was born December 19, 1933 to Marie Louise Granbery Stinson and Leland Howard Stinson in Dallas, Texas. Frances passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Sunday evening, October 18, 2020. After graduating from Greenville High School (Class of ‘51), Frances attended Kilgore College where she became a Rangerette. She met her future husband, James Herbert “Jim” Love who was a Rangerette manager. They married August 30, 1952. While serving our country in the USAF, the young family was stationed in various locations in the US and Europe. After returning to the states, they moved back to Texas to be closer to family. In the late 1970’s Frances returned to college and received her degree in Elementary Education. She retired after teaching over 20 years in Grand Saline public schools and Longview Christian School. Frances was a faithful member of St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church in Mineola. Over the past 6 years she has attended St. William Laud Episcopal Church in Pittsburg while living with her daughter, Charlotte. Through the years of serving in the Episcopal Church, Frances has been a member and officer of the Daughters of the King, ECW, Altar Guild, lector, and served on the vestry in several positions. She was also an associate of the Community of St. Mary, Greenwich, NY and Community of the Holy Spirit in New York City. She loved to garden, read, and spend time with family (especially great grandchildren). She also greatly enjoyed traveling. She particularly enjoyed traveling with her sisters Sheri and Jenny and most recently her grandson Jacob. Frances was preceded in death by her father and mother Leland and Louise Stinson, step-father George Selsor, and brothers Randy and William “Bill” Stinson, husband, James “Jim” Love, sons-in-law Tim Haygood and Mike Sellers, and great-granddaughter Ellie Love Kropchuk. She is survived by her children Charlotte Haygood, son and daughter-in-law Rt.Rev. William “Bill” and Karen Love, daughter Jamie and son-in-law Randy Murray, daughter Gail Sellers, and sisters Sheri Stinson and Jenny King, grandchildren Megan (David) Howard, Matthew (Ann) Haygood, Chris (Lauren) Love, Catie (Doug) Jones, Caitlin Kropchuk, Jacob Murray, Andrew Anderton, Cassi Sellers, great grandchildren Camden, Chandler, and Anna Cate Howard, Peter, Caleb, Lenora, and Alister Love, Timothy and Caroline Kropchuk, as well as numerous beloved nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank special caregivers, Pamela Shepherd and Shirley Waddleton for their wonderful care for Mom over the past year. We would also like to thank Hospice of East Texas for their care and compassion.     Due to Covid 19 regulations, a private family memorial service will be held at St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church, Hospice of East Texas, or any charity of your choice.
