Etta Frances (Price) Sands

8/24/1924 - 3/20/2013

God has opened the gates of heaven and sounded the heavenly trumpets as he summoned his most trusted Angels to descend on Tucson, and escort one of his greatest treasures, E. Frances Sands, to her final "living place" in glory with her Lord. Frances (Price) was born on August 24, 1924 in a small town of Blodgett, Missouri and at the age of 22 married her life-long partner, George B. Sands Jr. of Keiser, Arkansas at the Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit, MI on June 29, 1946. Frances and George have been married together for close to 67 years and were blessed with six wonderful and exceptional children. The oldest, Lynn Ellen (Sands) Day (Damon) (deceased-2011); George Byron Sands III (Renee); Paul Daniel Sands (Elaine) (deceased-2005); Rebecca Ann (Sands) Walcutt (James); John Mark Sands (KeLeigh) and Roger McCormick Sands (Alma) (deceased-2012). George and Frances were also blessed with 14 grandchildren that warmed and tickled their hearts on so many days, weeks, and years! Then there were 12 great-grandchildren who were an added blessing to Frances' great life. A Funeral Service is scheduled at EAST LAWN PALMS MORTUARY CHAPEL, 5801 E. Grant Road, Tucson, AZ starting at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 with the burial service to follow at the same address. Rest with your precious Lord, Frances! We Love You!
