WARREN - Frances LaVerne Wilson, 96, passed away to her heavenly resting place in the loving arms of Jesus on October 25 at 8:43 p.m. She was surrounded by her loved ones at the home of her son Dennis in Warren, Ohio.
Frances was born August 1, 1923 in Lovely Pennsylvania. She was the daughter of Willard (1898-1982) and Elizabeth (Mock) (1900-1986) Claycomb. Frances was one of thirteen children. She was of Baptist faith. She moved to Warren in 1959 from Portage, Pennsylvania with her husband and six children. This was a new beginning for them, but she missed her family immensely and often went “back home” for visits. She and her family have many memories of Portage, including living in the farmhouse on top of Springhill Road and at the Evangelical United Brethren Church on Caldwell Avenue.
From 1960 to 1983 Frances was the elevator attendant at The Union Savings and Trust Co. in downtown Warren. Frances loved her family. She could always be found cooking a delicious dinner or baking a pie, with apple and pumpkin being her favorites. You could always count on her to be taking care of whoever was sick or needed help. She will be remembered for being kindhearted by all who knew her.
Frances will be sadly missed by her six children Roy (Maria) of Arlington, Virginia, Bonnie (Bruce) Williams of Cortland, Jerry (Mary) of Warren, Judy (Ron) Zelenak of Hudson, Wayne (Sandy) of Niles, Dennis (Christy) of Warren. She has 11 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and 3 great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by her youngest sister Elaine Beurrier of Baltimore, Maryland, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Her husband Roy “Scotty” Wilson, whom she married on June 18, 1946, died on March 4, 2005. Her parents and brothers, Shimer, Fred, Earl, Darl; and sisters, Rose Marie Carpenter, Ruth Hribar, Ruie Bender, Mary Louise Claycomb, Betty Plummer, and Nancy Miller also preceded her in death.
Calling hours will be 6 to 8 P.M. on Tuesday, October 29 at the Sinchak & Sons Funeral Home in Warren, Ohio.
The funeral service will be on Wednesday, October 30 at 10:00 A.M. at the funeral home with her grandson, Reverend Daniel Wilson, speaking.
