Frances was born July 30, 1935, to Henry Grady Riley and Byrdean Browning Riley in Duck Hill, Miss. She passed away May 29, 2022, in Many at the age of 86.
She was preceded in death by her parents, two sisters and one brother.
Frances worked for many years with the Natchitoches Parish School Board but ultimately retired from the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s office after several years of service to her community. She was a long-time member of Westside Baptist Church and enjoyed fellowship with her church family and especially her Sunday School class. Family was her greatest treasure on earth and she cherished each and every time spent with them. We take comfort in knowing we will be reunited with her one day in Heaven.
She is survived by her husband of 68 years, Don Winn; children, Holly Lambert and Scott Clayton Winn; grandchildren, Jed Lambert and wife Liz and Kelly Lambert Aton and husband Zach; great-grandchildren, Levi Aton, Cullen Aton and Milleigh Aton; a sister, Yvonne Hayen; and a sister-in-law, Barbara Ruggiero.
Those honored to serve as pallbearers include Robert Morgan, Mike Stewart, S.G. Martin, David Cheatwood, Zach Aton and Anthony Pleasant.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Frances’ name may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or to a charity of choice.
