Frances Bottomley, 95, of West Lafayette, passed away on Sunday, January 13, 2019 at IU Health Arnett Hospital with family by her side.

She was born on April 10, 1923 in Chicago, IL, to the late Charles W. and Dorothy (Holmes) Fisher.

Frances graduated from New Trier High School in Winnetka, IL. She attended Purdue University where she met her husband, H. William "Bill" Bottomley. They were married on January 29, 1944 in Chicago, IL. Bill preceded her in death on June 6, 1991.

Frances was known for her witty comments and fun personality. She was an avid reader and good bridge player, but her greatest loves were always her family and friends.

Surviving are a daughter; one daughter-in-law,; three granddaughters; three great-granddaughters; and one great-grandson. A son, Charles F. Bottomley, preceded her in death on February 9, 1983.

She was a member for many years of several organizations. Her favorites were Thomas Duncan Hall, the John Purdue Club, and Delta Gamma sorority.

She will be laid to rest in Tippecanoe Memory Gardens next to her husband and son. A family memorial service will be held in the spring.
