Frances had a passion for classical music and organ. She served as organist at Green Memorial Baptist Church for several years and later was a charter member of Eastern Hills Baptist Church where she also served as organist. She was a woman of quiet faith and kindness and participated in many church activities. After she moved to The Cypress of Charlotte, she joined Providence Road Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School from time to time.

Frances Plummer was preceded in death by her husband of 59 ½ years, James Jackson (Jack) Plummer. During World War II, Frances lived and worked in Washington state so that she could be closer to her husband who was stationed in the South Pacific with the 670th Topographical Army Engineers. After the war, they settled in Charlotte building a home on Pinecrest Avenue and living there until Jack’s death. They enjoyed traveling together where Frances spent many hours planning the next adventure. Each trip was documented, Frances making detailed notes and Jack taking many photographs.
