She married Oscar Raymond Mark in 1942 and together they had three children, Ray (Corky), Rodney (Butchy), and Trudy. Frannie was very active at Dodge Memorial Church teaching Sunday school, bible school, and participated in the church circle for many years.

She is preceded in death by her parents; son, Rodney (Butchy); husband, Oscar Raymond Mark on January 4, 1986; and her son, Ray (Corky).
