She was preceded in death by her parents, Frederick & Mary Trippel, seven siblings and is survived by her brother Richard Trippel, 11 children, 27 grandchildren and 35 great grandchildren.
She resided in Missouri City and Sugar Land for over 40 years and was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
Her interests and hobbies included baking and sewing. Her other love remained with Notre Dame, near to where she grew up. She also faithfully followed the Astros, Rockets and Texans.
But, her greatest love and what she was most devoted to was her Catholic faith, which never faltered. Frances was an amazing, loving, endearing, and selfless woman who always put her faith first.
In a century, she witnessed so many incredible changes in lifestyles, types of travel, medical miracles, depression, wars, space exploration and industrial revolution.
Visitation will be at St. Laurence Catholic Church in Sugar Land, Texas on Thursday, August 10th, at 9:15 am, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00 am. Grave-site services will follow at 1:15 pm at the Houston National Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers please send donations to Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ, P.O. Box 1, Donaldson, IN 46513, In Memory of: Frances Williams.
