Mrs. Frances Braswell, 99, born November 28, 1919 in Haynesville, LA to H.T. and Dora Traylor. She had 2 beloved brothers, and sister. Her
first marriage to Paschal Odom led to his ranching family in West

before moving to Dallas in 2014.
She remained an energetic Louisiana gal her whole life, and leaves us all with fun & loving memories.
