Frances Winall, from Powhatan, VA. Quietly passed away on September 23, 2021, to be with the Lord and reunited with her family. She was born on June 27th, 1925, in Crewe VA to Hiram and Essie Carter Anderson. Frances was preceded in death by her parents, Hiram and Essie Carter Anderson of Crewe VA; Husband William S.

Also surviving is her sister Juanita Yates of Crewe VA; and nephews Charles "Chip" Yates and Bryan Camp of Raleigh, NC. Frances was a long-time member of the May Memorial Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School for many years, she retired from Beaumont Learning Center and her hope was that she helped those young men lead better lives. Her friends remember her as being amazingly young for her age, full of energy, always ready to have fun, and most of all, her positive attitude was contagious. She was a lifelong member of the Mill Quarter Ladies Golf, loved her flower gardening, which she had just finished a new one this past spring! Her later years were devoted to helping children learn about the love of Christ, she started "The Gems", God's Elderly Missionaries, which was a group of ladies that gave freely to people and organizations in need, especially The Coalpit Kids. She absolutely loved tutoring the refugee children at Crestwood Church, where that love was returned in abundance! She will be remembered for being "The Barn Angel" in the Nativity Scene that was sponsored in Anne Lewis' barn every Christmas. We can't forget her love for shopping at the Goodwill's, she loved talking to all the people, she'll be missed! The family welcome's her friends to the Bennett and Barden Funeral home for a visitation on October 3, 2021, from 2-4 at 3215 Anderson Highway Powhatan VA 23139.
