Ora was born on April 4, 1941 in Cooke County, TX to Mack and Opal Cox.  Frances worked nearly 40 years at various beauty shops in Gainesville.  She was an avid fan for the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers.  She loved celebrating the holidays by decorating her house for the holiday of the month, playing Santa and dressing up for Halloween at the Dialysis Clinic.  She busied herself with her needle point, which she also kept mostly holiday themed.  Animals always had a soft spot in her heart, except snakes.  Don’t even show her a picture of a snake, she would make sure you regretted it.  Her sweet smile and love for people will be missed.

She was proceeded in death by Two husbands, Charles Noel Ammons and Joe Neil Kays; Parents Mack and Opal Hodge Cox; Loving Sister Nancy Cox Burch Kelly and Brother-in-law Glen Burch; Great Nephew Emmitt Colten; Nephew Brad Kelly; Grand-Parents, Aunts, Uncles, many cousins and too many dear friends from Gainesville Dialysis Clinic.
