Obituary For Frances K. Antoine

Frances Kathryn Antoine, 88, of Sedalia, MO formerly of Smithton, MO passed away Thursday, April 29, 2021, at her home. She was born on November 18, 1932, in Smithton, the daughter of George Jaeger and Goldy (Rehmer) Jaeger, who preceded her in death.

On May 10, 1952, in Smithton, she was united in marriage to Charles Duane Antoine, who preceded her in death on December 16, 2012.

Frances was a member of the First United Methodist Church, Sedalia. She was an active member of the Elm Hills Country Club and the Sedalia Shrine Club's Womens Auxiliary. Frances enjoyed reading, golf, fishing, playing games, and especially loved spending time with her family and friends. Her four grandchildren were the pride and joy in her life, and she in theirs.

A private family graveside memorial service and burial will be held at Smithton Cemetery with Pastor James Gipson officiating.

There will be no formal visitation.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to First United Methodist Church in the care of Rea Funeral Chapel, 1001 S. Limit Ave., Sedalia, MO 65301.
