A memorial service is planned for 1 p.m. Friday in Leisure Town Hall, 100 Sequoia Ave., Leisure Town.

Born Feb. 5, 1914, in Baltimore, Md., she was married to Ralph Tichenor, a former Reporter columnist who preceded her in death. Mrs. Tichenor edited her husband's writing.

"Let it be known that every single time she was asked her age, Frances would ask, 'Can you keep a secret?' and when the answer was, 'Yes, of course,' her answer, with her well-known smile, would invariably be, 'Well, so can I,' said her granddaughter, Kathy McHugh of Sherman Oaks.

"Her family hopes that she will forgive them for publicly stating the year of her birth," she added.

Mrs. Tichenor was a longtime resident of Leisure Town, where she was active in community activities. She was a member of the Green Tree Niners and the Twice Arounders women's golf clubs.

After her husband's death in 1995, she moved to Elk Grove to live with her daughter, Louise McHugh. She was active in the senior center and the Elk Grove United Methodist Church. She also continued to be an avid golfer at both Emerald Lakes and Champions Golf Links golf courses, shooting, as she always said, "short but straight."

Although she no longer lived in Leisure Town, she always said she missed her Vacaville friends and enjoyed visiting for Christmas parties, and especially for the golf tournament and the presentation of the trophy named in her honor by the VacaValley Women's Club, a group Mrs. Tichenor organized and was the first captain of in 1964.

In addition to her husband, Ralph, she also was preceded in death by their son, Fred.

Frances is survived by her daughter, Louise McHugh of Elk Grove, her daughter-in-law, Bonnie of Sun Prairie, Wis., as well as nine grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. She also is survived by her recent companion, Henry Krysiak.

Arrangements are by Vaca Hills Chapel.
