Frances (Romona) Varnes Obituary
VARNES
Our family lost a beloved member on August 1, 2018, when Frances (Romona) Varnes went home to her family in heaven. Frances is survived by her husband of over 60 years, Doyle Varnes, and 3 generations of nieces and nephews across these United States. We love you Aunt Frances, and will miss you.
Frances, aka Romona, was born in Dallas, Georgia,
graduating in 1953 from Dallas High School. She started her professional life, as a secretary to a Dallas attorney, while still in high school. After graduation, she moved to Jacksonville, to work with Southern Bell as a long distance operator. She then worked for 15 years with Western Electric before she and Doyle, owned and operated Devco Premium Finance in Jacksonville.
She and Doyle then moved to Lake Butler, where she successfully ran Doyle Varnes Insurance Company, providing service to the Union County community. She retired in 2000, to enjoy the country life she so loved. She was a member of Insurance Women of Jacksonville, the Jacksonville Antique Bottle club, a painter, and avid genealogist, tracing her family back several generations to include their Native American heritage. She and Doyle maintained homes in both Jacksonville and Lake Butler.
At her request, there will not be any funeral services, and her ashes will be returned to the family plot in Georgia. Please honor her by reaching out to someone to remind them they are loved.
