Frances Elizabeth Lively
98, of Noblesville, passed away Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at her home. She was born August 6, 1916 to William and Bertha (Innis) Essig in Atlanta, Indiana.
Frances was a 1934 graduate of Cicero High School, and a member of the Ball State University class of 1936. Frances arduously served the community for more than 60 years as a teacher, volunteer, and proud citizen. Tri Kappa, Noblesville Schools, Noblesville-Southeastern Public Library Board, Riverview Hospital Foundation, and Noblesville First United Methodist Church are just a few of the organizations that have benefited from her guidance, leadership, and thousands of hours of volunteer work. She loved playing bridge, baking pies for FUMC, and providing pizza for many students after Noblesville football games. Frances was named Sagamore of the Wabash, designated as NHS Fan of the Year, and cheered on the Millers, Chicago Cubs, Indiana University, and the Colts. She was a pillar of the community and was always there to work until the job was done. When asked, Frances listed her greatest accomplishment as her 25-year teaching career, 16 of which were in Noblesville.
She is survived by her daughters, Beth Lively and Lynne Sylvester; and granddaughter, Jennifer Sylvester. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death in 1967 by her husband, Dr. Robert E. Lively; and brothers, Meredith (India) Essig and Lowell (Thelma) Essig.
