Frances Shields's Story
Frances Shields Peeples, 75, of Chatsworth, passed away on Sunday, Aug. 6, 2017.
Frances was, above all else, a woman of strong faith and conviction who spent countless hours in prayer. Her love for Christ was evident in the way that she cared for her dear husband and always wrapped her family in warmth and laughter. She was proud of the business that she and her husband built and to which they devoted so much of their lives. As a funeral director at Peeples Funeral Home she guided many people through some of their most difficult times. She left an incredible example for her family and friends of how a Christian should live, and everyone who knew Frances Peeples is a better person because of it.
Frances was preceded in death by her parents, Harlan Hill Shields and Opal Jenkins Shields.

Peeples; daughters and sons-in-law, Amy and Jerry Herndon and Valerie and Mark Talley of Chatsworth; brother and sister-in-law, Morris and Sharon Shields of Crandall; grandchildren, Wesley and Lesley Herndon, Rachel Herndon, Sloan Witherow, Millie Witherow, Emily Talley and Ella Talley; great-granddaughter, Quinley Bryn Herndon; nephews, Stacey Shields and Jerome Shields; niece, Kristy Shields; great-niece, Kiersten Shields; great-nephew, Landon Shields; special cousin, Mary Nathan Kendrick; and many other extended family members.
