Frances was born June 7, 1919, in Comanche County, Texas, the eldest daughter of Pete and Ida Sparks. They preceded her in death.
Frances married J.B. Busby on May 9, 1949, in Carrizozo. They spent more than 63 years together. He survives her at the family home.
She is also survived by her children, Cathy Clark, Barbara Feldman and her significant other Duane Sheppard, Judy Richards, Linda Gregory and her husband David, Blaine Busby and his wife Linda, and Shaun Busby; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Frances came to New Mexico in a covered wagon with her parents when she was 2 years old. They settled in Dexter. She graduated from high school in Dexter and spent one year at ENMU. Frances came back home to take care of her mother and two sisters. She had fond memories working in the Dexter Post Office in the 1940s. She spent her life caring for others — her mother, sisters, husband, mother-in-law and father-in-law, children, grandchildren and others. She was the center around which the whole family revolved.
