Frances Josephine Corn Crompton went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on September 7, 2016. She is now safely and lovingly sheltered in the arms of God.
She was a lifelong native of Henderson County and member of Fruitland Baptist Church. Born on January 17, 1935, she was the daughter of the late John Pinkney Corn and Helen Griffin Corn. She was preceded in death by her husband, James (Jim) O. Crompton and her sister and best friend Agnes Corn Chandler.
She graduated from Edneyville High School in 1953, then attended Brevard College, and received a degree in Radiologic Technology from Dell School of Medical Technology in 1955. She worked for several doctors, then General Electric where she later retired.
She is survived by her daughter Maria (Shelley) Ward Floyd, her husband Steven A. Floyd whom she considered her son and three grandchildren, Breanna M. Floyd, Charles S. Floyd, and Chandler T. Floyd who were most definitely the lights of her life, her brother-in-law Ronald (Bud) Chandler, cousin Hazel Ashburn, whom she considered her best friend and sister, aunt Judy Griffin Alden, uncle JC Justus, and many other relatives and friends.
A funeral service will be held Sunday September 11, 2016 at 3 PM at The Chapel in the Pines of Jackson Funeral Service with the Rev Dr. Michael Smith and Rev. Craig Stepp officiating. Private entombment will follow the service. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service in the chapel.
Special thanks to all those who visited, called, and loved her. She will be greatly missed, but we take comfort in knowing that we will see her again!
“I’m happy now. I’m home. I will always love you Shelley, Steve, Breanna, Charlie, and Chandler forever!” – Granny Fran
