Mrs. Frances G. Bassham, age 86, wife of Minister Olan Bassham, and a resident of Columbia, Tennessee passed away on Friday, September 16, 2011 at Maury Regional Medical Center.

Funeral Services for Mrs. Bassham were conducted on Monday, September 19, 2011 at 1:00 PM in the chapel of Heritage Funeral Home with James Heatherly and Danny Douglas officiating. Heritage Funeral Home assisted the family with arrangements.

A native of Enterprise, Tennessee, she was the daughter of the late Hugh J. and Grace (Daniels) Douglas. She was a member of the Highland Church of Christ. She and her husband were married for over 70 years. They served many churches of Christ during their years together. They served in Jeffersonville, Indiana, and then in Tennessee in Columbia, Manchester, Sparta, Nashville, Covington, Summitville, and after moving back to Maury County, they served rural churches in Lawrence and Maury counties for 11 years. She was a devoted and loving mother and help mate to her husband. While serving the members of the churches, she never neglected her ministry of caring for her husband and children, Terry and Dawn. She was quiet and reserved, yet her love and devotion was evident in all she did. Her many years of dedicated service and devotion are greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten. Now Frances has moved home to be with her Lord which the Apostle Paul said is "far better" than anything this earth offers.

In addition to her husband Olan of over 70 years, she left behind to cherish her memory two children: Terry Bassham and Dawn (Emory) Vankirk; two grandchildren: Lisa Demike and Taylor Bassham and three great-grandchildren: Hunter, Jake, and Caroline Nickoloff.
