In 1962, the couple moved to Midland. Fran and Bob had one son, Bob Dawson, Jr., and two grandchildren, Geoffrey Dawson and Ellie Dawson.

She is survived by her son, Bob; her grandchildren, Geoffrey and Ellie and her sister-in-law, Jewel Murphrey.

She is preceded in death by her husband; her parents; her brother, James Murphrey; and her brother- and sister-in-law, Athol A. and Joan Dawson.

The family would like to express their gratitude to Robert A. Vogel, M.D., and the nurses, PCAs, and other employees of Midland Memorial Hospital who cared for her during her final illness.
