Service Announcement for

Frances Dacie Malott Whitley

April 28, 1911 ~ November 20, 2013

Frances was born Malott, WA, settled by her pioneering grandparents. She attended Business College in Seattle and on August 20, 1932, married Francis Floyd Whitley. They lived in Pullman, WA and Las Cruces, NM. They returned to Washington in 1942, where they built a house in East Wenatchee and raised their family. She worked as an apple packer, then at JC Penney Co. and retired in 1976, as secretary from Sterling Jr. High in East Wenatchee.

Frances and Floyd were active square dancers for many years. Frances was a lifetime member of Eastern Star, Native Daughters of Territorial Pioneers of Washington, and Grange and remained a faithful member of First United Methodist Church.

She is survived by her daughters, Sharon and Sandra; sons, David (Karen) and Duane (Jeanette); brother, Red; 14 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, April 26, 2014, at the First United Methodist Church, corner of Washington and Miller Streets in Wenatchee. Friends of Frances are invited to come celebrate her life.
