She was as active member of St. John Berchman's Cathedral and enjoyed participation in the Ladies Circle group. She attended South Highlands Elementary and was a graduate of C. E. Byrd High School. For over fifty years, she was a loyal employee of ArkLa Gas until her retirement. Anyone who knew Fannie has a "Fannie story". These stories will keep her memory alive in each of us for years to come.
