Frances was born to Henry Obert and Emma Isabelle Obert in Cass County, near Garden City, Mo. She graduated from Centerview High School with the class of 1929, and went on to attend Sedalia Business College for two years.

Early in their marriage, they lived in Kansas City, and after George had established his truck line, they relocated to Carthage, Mo.

Frances and George moved back to Kansas City, after selling the truck line, building their new home at Alameda Towers on the Plaza, where Frances stayed until she needed more help. She later moved to Kingswood Manor, where she celebrated her 101st birthday.
