Frances Ann Booker was born on June 1, 1943, and was called to her eternal garden on April 28, 2022. She was preceded in death by her parents, James Roberts and Flora Epps; sisters, Doris Johnson and Bertha McGhee; brother, Roy Epps; and a devoted son, Stanley Epps, whom she carried close to her heart to her very last days. Frances grew up in Amelia County, where she attended Amelia County Schools. She accepted Christ at an early age while still in Amelia and continued her journey later in life at First Baptist Church. Frances later moved to Richmond and pursued a career in nursing. She was a dedicated worker at the Virginia Home for over 20 years, until her early retirement. She found great pleasure in nursing and\ncaring for her many patients through the years and would come home with many stories. One of her favorite pastimes was watching soap operas. She had to tune in each weekday to see what Victor Newman was plotting. Her other pastime was shopping for clothing, shoes, and household goods. She also loved to cook in her early years, which later in life turned into her loving to eat as long as someone else was cooking it. Frances had the best times with her siblings and other family, gathering all together and talking about the "old days." She will be remembered for her humble, gentle manner. Although Frances had a quiet and meek spirit, she would always sneak in a side-lined joke that would catch you by surprise. She leaves to cherish her memory: three daughters, Alice, Pamela, and Kimberly Guyton; five sisters, Hattie Laster, Eartha Woolridge, Janice Epps, Cynthia Brown, and Gail Laster; four brothers, Robert, James, Clarence, and Bernard Epps; 11 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and a host of other relatives.\n\nMemorial service will be held on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at 11 AM at Mimms Funeral Home, 1827 Hull St.
