Dear Family, my deepest sympathy at the passing of Frances. She was a Garden Club friend since 1970s. We shared many good times of friendship and learning at UGA Symposiums and judging Flower Shows across Georgia. The Daylily farm was a special place! Frances will be sorely missed. May God give you comfort and peace. John 3:16 Amen!

God Bless. Love y'all!

Jack and Diane Joiner, Albany, Ga

Frances was a treasure! She encouraged others and She prayed for family & friends. She always expressed gratitude for simple things. She adjusted and reajusted as life changed. She will be missed at Savannah Squares ! I am so glad I did not miss knowing this dear lady!

June Erlandson, Savannah, Ga

I will always remember Aunt Fran as an amazing hostess and a great cook-I still make her coconut cake recipe that she shared with me so many years ago. She was a great lady and will be so missed. She was such a support for my dad near the end and I will always treasure her visits with him. Sandra and Royce, I am so sorry for your loss of your mom..

Patricia Joiner Anastasia , Springfield , VA

My condolences to the Windam Joiner family. It sounds like Mrs Joiner loved and appreciated God’s creation. .Our Heavenly Father also loves and appreciates his creation and reason why he implemented a plan to restore his all of his creation to the original purpose and state. Part of this plan is to bring back to life all the meeks ones on earth that have passed in death. While words can never take away the pain caused by the loss of a loved one , the words promised by Jesus in John 5:28,29 will soon wipe away our sorrows as we see our loved ones join us here on an earthly paradise.

Valdes, Greenville , SC

Dear Francis, We so miss you at the Wymberley Garden Club and in our Isle of Hope neighborhood....and having luncheons at your and Enmans beautiful gardens. You and Enman surely live on in all of your beautiful daylillies in our gardens...now its time to make Heaven a little prettier. I learned so much from you....Im so glad we were friends. ps Tell mother "hi" for me.

Nancy Tamarack, Savannah, Ga

I am so sorry for your loss. Death was never part of God's plan for mankind. We have an hope to look forward to at Revelation 21:4" mentions that "God will wipe every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." May the love from friends and family carry you through your grief.

Gwen, , GA

My sincere condolences to the family, losing a loved one in death is never easy. We have a example to look at that gives us something to look forward to in the near future. Please look at the account of Lazarus an Jesus, the way Jesus resurrected Martha an Mary's brother an the emotions they felt definitely will be how things will be on a grander scale. Please read John chapter 11 verses 25 an 26.

Sister Joined you have already been missed at Radiant Life. You were one of the fixtures. I will remember you every time I make Sweet Potate Cassarol. You gave me the recipe 40 years ago. My sympathy goes out to her family. She was such a fine Christian lady. There aren't many women you can say that about these days. Becky Scroggin

Rebecca Scroggin, Savannah, , GA.

I’m so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Death is something that we never get used to; because it’s unnatural. Yet, the Bible promises a time when we can see our loved ones again. John 5:28 and 29 talks about how there will be a resurrection. For more info, visit JW.org to find an article on the subject
