In her earlier years Frances took great pride in her work at the Stella Maris Nursing Home in North Sydney. She then moved on to marry her best friend and enjoyed raising her family in Alder Point. When not with her family she could be found enjoying a night of fun and laughter with her closest friends, Betty Marsh and Tina Gracie, at the local Bingo Hall, one of her greatest pleasures. Frances always made sure her doors were open to the neighbourhood kids, she always did her best to make sure the felt welcomed and special.
Frances is survived by her loving husband of 58 years Barry Buffett, children, Johnny (Mea), Michael (Crystal), Mary (Bert) Gracie, Wanda (Matthew) Hayden. Frances always enjoyed every minute with her grandchildren, Nakia (Lance), and Jeremy (Savannah). She is also survived by sisters, Ann Marie and Margaret and brother, David.
