Frances Lee McGee Hathorn passed away on her farm on February 1, 2017. Born on April 1, 1929, Frances, daughter of Henry Bonner McGee and Annie Mae McGee, was from Tchula, MS. Frances met her husband, Daniel Norfleet Hathorn at Southwestern at Memphis where she was a Chi Omega. Frances loved flowers and had a flair for interior design and storytelling, especially about the people and places she loved. She was predeceased by her husband, her parents, her brother, Henry Bonner McGee, Jr., and most beloved friend, Missouri Moore. She is survived by her children Sara O'Dell, Ann Gonzales and husband Edward, and Daniel Norfleet Hathorn, Jr. and wife Therese; by her grandchildren Virginia Hornbuckle and husband William, Edward Gonzales, Alice Hathorn, Sam Hathorn, and Frances Lee Hathorn; and by great-grandchildren Charlie Dezotelle, Eva Gonzales, and Lillian and Everett Hornbuckle. The family gives special thanks to Denise Craig, both dear friend and accountant, and to Cornelius Claiborne and his family, her devoted caregivers, who made it possible for her to spend her last days on her beloved farm, as she had desired. The family requests memorial donations be made to either Rose Hill Baptist Church in Tchula, MS or to St. Mary's Episcopal Church, Lexington, MS. A celebration of life service will be held at the St. Mary's Episcopal Church on Saturday, February 11 at 11 a.m.
