Frances was born and raised in Cumberland, Maryland.

She graduated from Allegany High School in 1942.

Frances married Milton Campbell in 1945. They had five children: 1947-Kenny Ray, 1948-Sandra Faye, 1949-Carmelita Denise, were all born in Cumberland, Md. In 1955-Robert Gerald and 1956-Michael James were born in Baltimore, Maryland. The family had moved to Baltimore in search of work.

Frances worked years as a telephone operator at the Patomac Telephone Company in Cumberland, Md and later for the C & P Telephone Company and then as a switch board operator at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Md.

She loved to sew and was very artistic. Frances did many years of volunteer work for the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts and the Homemakers Club, etc.

Milton had health issues and took an early retirement. They sold their home in Baltimore and purchased a small farm in Mount Storm, West Virginia in 1977. They lived there until Milton's death in 1984. They were married for 39 years.

She then stayed with her eldest son's family. Eventually Frances wanted to move back to the mountains. She found a place in a senior living apartment building. She had many years of happiness up there with her friends, Opal and Ivan.
As years passed and her health started failing, she knew she could no longer live alone. Frances came back to Baltimore and lived with her youngest daughter, until France died of server COPD in 2005 in Franklin Square Hospital at the age of 80.
