Frankie married Dale D Hicks on 25 June 1954 in Las Vegas, NV and had a daughter Sandra 'Sandy' Hicks.

Frankie married Owen P. Crossman in 12 Feb 1966 in Las Vegas, NV.

Frances worked her whole adult life until she retired, she was a phone operator, usually a secretary and bookkeeper, office manager, Chief Court Clerk and her last job was one of her favorites as an assistant to the Head of the Education Department for the Phoenix Zoo.

Frankie was reunited with the church she loved and missed late in life the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and attended it regularly following it passionately.
