Frances OmohundroFrances Nelson Omohundro passed away on May 5, 2016 at the age of 99. She and her husband, the late John M. Omohundro, Jr. had resided at one of the oldest and loveliest homes in Bluefields for nearly 50 years and played active roles in the Bluefields and Donelson communities.

Mr. Omohundro's parents, John Sr. "Squire" and Sadie Omohundro, had lived at the home, 2611 Bluefield Ave., for 20 years prior to that. So, all told, the Omohundro family were fixtures of Bluefields for nearly 70 years.

Her obituary states that Mrs. Omohundro "was a member of the Lebanon Road Garden Club and the Holy Rosary Church and its Parent Association. She was an avid gardener, artist, bridge player, camper and fisherman. Gardenias were her favorite flowers. Her family was the most important part of her life. She always had a warm welcome for family and friends."
