Needmore, Pennsylvania

    Frances Mae “Sis” Knable, age 89, formerly of Needmore, Pa., passed away on Thursday, January 16, 2020, at the Fulton County Medical Center Long-Term Care, in McConnellsburg, Pa.

    Born July 6, 1930, she was the daughter of the late Luther “Gus” and Mary (Mills) Weller.

    She had formerly been employed by the Hancock Orchards; the National Restaurant, in Hancock; and Seely Furniture, in Berkeley Springs, W.Va.

    Before her admittance to F.C.M.C., she made it a priority to spend time at the Warfordsburg Senior Center, but her greatest pleasures were spending time with her family and friends; playing Triominos and Bingo; and feeding the birds.

Smith and her husband, Daniel, of Warfordsburg, Pa.; a sister, Betty Hensley; a brother, Floyd Weller; four grandchildren, Chris, Jennifer, Aaron, and Justin; and six great-grandchildren, Bryce, Courtney, Chayney, Kaitlin, McKenzie and Laikynn.

    In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two daughters, Karen S. Knable, and Ida L. Barnhart; six brothers, Clifford, Sr., Melvin, James, Clyde, Larry, and Calvin Weller; and four sisters, Dorothy Burnett, Ethel Thatcher, Judy and Mary Jane Weller.
