Vera Frances St. Clair | May 20, 1937 - June 8, 2020

Vera Frances St. Clair, 83, of Abilene, passed away at her home on Monday, June 8th, 2020. She was born the youngest daughter to Norman and Susie Lee Quinney Shelton in Stockdale, Texas on May 20th, 1937. She was the 1952 North Junior High School Queen and married John Schmidt in 1953. They had 6 children together. In 1968 she married Owen Lee St. Clair and had one son, Michael Lee. She loved to read and listen country music. Frances loved her children and lived for her grandchildren.
Frances worked at Abilene State Support Living Center in food service where she retired after 18 years of employment. After retirement she looked after her grandchildren, attended their ball games, birthday parties and enjoyed going out to eat with family. There was never a family event she didn't attend. Another hobby she had was scratching her lottery tickets that she would have her children run to the store to buy. Frances also loved finding a bargain, if a ballgame wasn't scheduled, off to the garage sales she would go. She was always a happy person and could brighten up your day with her friendliness and her smile.
