Frances was born September 20, 1925, to William Henry and Fannie Mae (Battle) Vaughn in Marion, Alabama. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Claude Garth Cormana on November 8, 1987; her sisters, Lucille Hudnall in March 1999, and Rose Lee Buckner in December 1998; a daughter, Pricilla Ann Peterson in October 1991; and a granddaughter, Christina Mae Beall in May 1993. Frances is survived by her daughter, Barbara J. (David A.) Gage, of Nixa, Missouri, granddaughters, Laura Zeigler and Jennifer Patterson-Fox both of Nixa, Missouri; grandsons, Gary E. Beall and John Zeigler both of Colorado; great-granddaughters, Chantel Beall, Emily Zeigler, Kaitlyn Sandman, and Priscilla Wollweber all of Nixa, Missouri, Crystal Zeigler of Pennsylvania, Savannah Zeigler of Colorado; great-grandsons, Ryan Sandman, Dylan Ford of Springfield, Missouri and Alexander Zeigler of Pennsylvania. During the early years of World War II, Frances met a handsome young Army Air Force private stationed at Galena Army Base while working at the airplane plant near the base in Washington State, who at the time drove a Model “T”. They were united in marriage on February 9, 1945, in a civil service in Spokane, Washington. The couple lived in Harrington, Washington for a while then moved to Birmingham, Alabama, and then to Houston, Texas for some time. They chose to make their home in Denver, Colorado and raise their girls. Frances felt a strong sense of community and made time to serve in many community programs. She and her husband were dedicated volunteers, driving several years for the Commerce City Meals-on-Wheels program delivering hot meals to seniors. After the death of her husband, Frances continued her volunteer work by becoming a victim advocate with the Adams City Police Department as well as the Commerce City Police Department. She volunteered and worked setting up fair sites several years with the KBTV Channel 9 Health Fair. After the death of her daughter and granddaughter, Frances made her home in Nixa, Missouri with her daughter Barbara. While being a devoted homemaker and mother, Frances worked at many jobs outside the home, Walgreen’s, Kings Soopers, Denver County Jail, and Lawless Detective Agency. After moving to Missouri, Frances began volunteering and working for Green Thumb Seniors where she helped out in the schools of both Nixa, and Ozark, another small town close to Ozark. Frances’ failing health, difficulty hearing and lack of sight due to macular degenerative disease forced her to discontinue her work outside the home as well as her services as a volunteer which greatly saddened her. Anyone who knew Frances knew she worked hard and took pride in everything she did. Her love and kindness touched many folks. She enjoyed serving others and always put her best effort in to what she did. She was meticulous and tended to all the details. Frances’ treasured times were with her family, church, and her volunteer work. She made her profession of faith in Christ and lived an exemplary life helping and caring for others. Frances was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and dear friend. She loved people and made friends everywhere she lived – even in her last home. We have been blessed by her life and work. She will be fondly missed by all who knew and loved her. Services will be held in Thornton, Colorado. Interment will follow in Olinger Highland Memorial Cemetery, Thornton, Colorado. Laid to rest beside her beloved husband.
