She found much joy in feeding and caring for those who sat at her table. Frances had many gifts, she was the original Martha Stewart. She could cultivate a garden, sew up a storm, make home-made pasta, and collect field stones in her Station Wagon to build her fireplace - Martha had nothing on her. She was also passionate about music!
