On March 1, 2003, FRANCES LOUISE (nee Craig) TURKINGTON, loving wife of the late Russell; beloved mother of Craig, Van and Ivy; dear sister of Jessie Timm, James Craig, Gladys Pittman, and Floyd Craig; loving grandmother of Shawn, Jamie, Christine and Jessica and great grandmother of Jillian. Born in Byrdstown, TN, Fran moved with Russell to Trenton, NJ, in 1944. They moved to Baltimore in 1963, and Fran became a top account representative for Maryland National Bank and then retrained as a nurse. After 20 years of nursing, Fran turned to non-profit work, as a manager for the Joanne Rockwell and Hackerman-Patz Houses at Johns Hopkins. An artist, nature lover, and optimist, Fran celebrated life. A good friend, kind and compassionate to all, she was much beloved by everyone she touched. While at her wish no viewing will be held, a spring memorial is planned for family and close friends. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Gilchrist Center, Hospice of Baltimore.
