Frances Marie Battles
July 3, 1926 - April 25, 2015
Frances Marie Battles passed away peacefully in the morning of Saturday, April 25, 2015. Frances was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and a great grandmother. She gave so much to her community with her volunteer service and her kind heart.
Frances was born July 3, 1926 in Wheatland, Wyoming to Merideth Orr Hukill and Elsie Tiede Hukill. She was preceded in death by both of her parents, her brothers Robert Earl Hukill, Fred Charles Hukill, Donald Leroy Hukill and her grandson JD Battles. She has two sons Michael Battles and Pat (Sandy) Battles, her grandchildren Dion (Dawn) Battles and their children Kameron and Lacee Battles, Jolynn (Jerry) Fugate, and their children Jacob, Tyler, and Sean Wilson.
Frances will be dearly missed by all of her family and her friends. She was adored by anyone who met her. She worked and retired from the State of Idaho at Health and Welfare as a records clerk. She also spent many countless hours volunteering at the Senior Center in Nampa and was also very dedicated to the First Christian Church in Nampa. Frances was a very giving woman, and she was always there to help others.
Thank you so much to Park Place Assisted Living for the more than three years that they helped take care of Frances. The family also wants to thank Kindred Care in Caldwell for the warm welcome they gave Frances, even though she was only there for a very short time. The whole family is so appreciative.
A graveside memorial service will be held at Kohlerlawn Cemetery on Monday, May 4, 2015 at 11:00 am. Arrangements are under the direction of the Nampa Funeral Home, Yraguen Chapel. An online guest book is available at
