Frances Elizabeth Ditto Flynn, age 81, of Suwanee, Georgia, passed away on August 23, 2016, in Duluth, Georgia. A Memorial in her honor will be held at 2:00 pm on Sunday, August 28, 2016, at Johns Creek Baptist Church. Arrangements are by Wages & Sons. Frances was born in Berkley Springs, West Virginia to on March 13, 1935. She graduated from Maryville High School in Maryville, Tennessee. Frances was a stay-at-home mom for many years, and later worked for the Department of Agriculture. She enjoyed her co-workers and her time in the Washington, DC and Gainesville, Florida offices, always learning new things and traveling to many locations around the country to share information for the DOA. She was loved and respected by everyone she worked with. Frances was lovingly known as “mom” to many over the years due to the energy she put into helping others through difficult situations and encouraging each person to become the best they could be at all they did. Frances is survived by her three children, Vickie Johnson, James Flynn, and Mary White; her sister, Margaret Ann Cunningham; her grandchildren, Zachary Lawson, Matthew Lawson, Jaimi Flynn, Jesse Flynn, and Ian White; and her great-grandchildren, Hanju Lawson, Gabriella Lawson, Mikayla Lawson, and Raven Lawson. We will all sorely miss our sister, mother, and granny. She was the glue that held our family together.  She wanted us all to be happy and love one another - this was how she lived her life. Donations may be given, in memory of Frances, to the Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia. The family of Frances wishes to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to the Peachtree Christian Hospice for the love and comfort provided to our dear sister, mother, and granny while she lived her last days with us.

  1. Francis was a very special person to all that knew her. Have such fond memories of all the good times we had with her. She loved to go on road trips. We are going to miss her dearly. Deepest sympathy to you all. May the Lord bring you comfort.

  2. A truly beautiful lady, both inside and out. I will always treasure the memory of a day we spent together in the art studio talking about family and life in general. A finer matriarch would be hard to find. My condolences to her loving family.

  3. Fran was such a good person. Loved to make big dinners for everyone. I still remember all the lunches we had together when we worked at the bank. Although I haven’t seen her for awhile before her death I would think of her often. She will be missed!

  4. Fran, You were my best friend. We spent so many good times together. My favorite was when we would go to the ice cream store in Melbourne. You wouldn’t tell me where we were going. We met in Panama Canal Zone in 1966 when you lived across the street from me. I will miss you but will never forget you for our friendship. God Bless, Emma

  5. What a kind, friendly lady! She had a comforting smile and a sweet demeanor that made her instantly likable. May she rest in peace. I wish those who grieve peace, healing, and freedom to mourn in the way that brings you the most comfort.
