She made and decorated cakes for every occasion, from weddings to birthdays, anniversaries to holidays. She often made her cakes in the form of an object relevant to the occasion (for example, footballs for a sporting event, cars, hats, etc.), so much so that her family often teased her by saying that all they ever got were "angles and corners."

Frances loved jigsaw puzzles. She always had one under way. She had an inquisitive mind and loved reading, particularly biographies. She also loved roses and enjoyed tending them in her garden. She was an active member of the Milford United Methodist Church and the United Methodist Women.

Frances was predeceased by her husband, S. Stanley Butler, in 1987.
