Frances was born June 9, 1931 in Alberta City, Alabama near the Tuscaloosa home of her dear Crimson Tide. James, Jean and Bobby were her younger siblings. Frances’s parents were Louie and Velma Griffin. In 1957, Mary Frances Griffin married Clyde S. Tullos and is survived by her husband; sons, Clyde Sidney Tullos, Jr. and John Edward Tullos, Sr.; daughter-in-law, Kathy Tullos; granddaughter, Dakota Kron; and grandson, John Edward Tullos, Jr.
From early childhood until her passing, the Baptist Church was the inspiration for her lifetime of church work and community service. Frances graduated from the University of Alabama, forever a Crimson Tide fan. Being a wife, mother and homemaker was her pride and joy and traveled to nearly all 50 states with her husband and sons. Later Frances had a second career at the old Dothan Feda Postal Credit Union where account numbers became friends and family.
Frances was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Jean Gibson of Auburn, AL.
Frances is survived by her beloved husband, sons, daughter-in-law, grandchildren, brothers, James Griffin and Bobby (wife, Virginia) Griffin. Other loving family members are included in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina and Texas.
