Armstrong, Jr. and her mother, Frances Gaudin Armstrong. Fran is survived by her children, Lori McMillan (Glynn “Tate”), Michael Williams and Keith Williams (Wendi). Also, survived by her grandchildren Ashley Williams, Dustin Williams, and Brandon Williams; and her brother Lawrence F. Armstrong, III (Suzanne). Born and raised in New Orleans, Fran graduated from Mount Carmel Academy. She always remembered her days at Mount Carmel with great joy and she grew to love the Sisters. Fran was the co-founder of Lake Forest Garden Club. There she was able to grow and share her love of gardening and flower arranging. In 2013, she decided to live her dream and built a home on forested acreage in Wiggins, Mississippi where she was able to enjoy her beautiful gardens, woods and lake every day. Fran had an exuberant, fun-loving personality that will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She passed peacefully surrounded by her family.
