Frances, or Fran as she was more fondly known, was born on February 27, 1943, in Richmond, Virginia, to the late Willis and Edna Lancaster. Fran faithfully attended Faith Evangelical Baptist Church where she was actively involved with the Women of Faith Ministry. Her natural ability to love and care for others was an asset to the church and ministry as well as the Thrift Store for St. James Methodist Church where she enjoyed volunteering. Fran enjoyed her neighbors and friends and her local community.
She is survived by her daughter, Angela Mourie of Rosman, NC; sons, Christopher Mourie and Robert “Robbie” Mourie of Richmond, VA; stepson, Edward Corley and wife Vicki of Richmond, VA; brother, Stan Lancaster of Richmond, VA; 2 grandchildren; and 1 great-grandchild.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband in 2019, Graham Corley.
