Frances C. Harvey, at the age of 94 years, went to be with her Lord on Tuesday, July 24, 2012, at the Legacy Campus Matagorda Healthcare Center in Bay City, Texas. She was greatly loved by her family, especially all her grandchildren who thought she was the world’s greatest cook, and the one to whom they should tell all their secrets when they spent the night with her. She will be remembered and missed by the ones she left behind…yet who know that one day we shall again see MaMa….this time in Heaven.
