The Commercial-News

---- — In loving memory of Fran, who left this life on Friday the 11th of October, 2013 at her home with family by her side.

She was preceded in death by both of her parents, Willie and Ruth Rasberry and Bill and Mildred Reed; sons, Daniel Davis, Robert Carl and James Carl; granddaughter, Kelsey Smith; several brothers; and one sister.

Survivors include her husband, James Davis of Danville; sister, Phyllis Hernandez of Iowa; sons William (Robin) Carl of Florida, Joe (Leann) Carl of Arkansas and Jeff (Tina) Davis of Danville; daughters, Drina (Todd) Smith of Cayuga, Ind., and Gerri (Marcus) Neal of Hartford City, Ind.; grandchildren, Mathew and Mariah Neal, Terri and Jeff Davis, Alexis, Corby, Kiel and Jarren Carl, Christopher, Gregory and Payne Smith, Brandon and Samantha Carl, Katie Vogil and Joey Carl and Tabitha and Stacey Carl; six great-grandchildren and many adopted grandchildren.

Fran loved spending time with her family, her flowers and watching wild animals that played in her back yard. She worked many years as a CNA for Americana Health Center in Danville and she finished her working career at Best Western Hotels as a housekeeper. But her most important career was being a wife, mother and grandmother. She will be sadly missed by her family and friends. We love and will miss you mom!

A family gathering will be Monday, Oct. 14, 2013, from 4-5 pm. at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center, A Life Celebration Home, in Danville. Please join Fran’s family in sharing memories of her through her tribute wall at
