Obituary for Frances Shepard Redd
Frances Shepard Redd passed away on March 14th, 2017. Frances was born in 1931 to William Russell Shepard and Helen Rebecca Shepard of Farmville, Virginia.
Beloved Frances is survived by her daughter, Kathy Redd Brodie of Farmville, her grandson, Brett Joseph Brodie of Wilmington, NC, her granddaughter, Devon Scott Brodie of Raleigh, NC, and her sister, Lily Ailsworth of Richmond. Frances is predeceased by her husband of 65 years, Robert T. Redd, and her son, Robert T. Redd, Jr.
Frances graduated from Farmville High School in 1949. After raising her children, she went back to Longwood College where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BS in Elementary Education. She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and was a contributor to both the Nancy Anderson Haga Scholarship and the LCVA.
Frances taught for 20 years at Buckingham Primary School until her retirement in 1997. She cherished her time with “her children,” and considered it her privilege and her mission to make sure that every child gained a love of reading. So often her former students stopped her in stores and on the street to thank her for giving them such an excellent educational foundation.
Frances was a woman of many talents. She especially enjoyed family gatherings and gardening. She was a bluebird and purple martin landlord for many years.
Frances will be deeply missed.

In lieu of flowers please honor her with contributions to the Robert T. Redd Fund for Professional Development and Scholarship Assistance (PO Drawer 328, Farmville, VA), to the Southside SPCA (PO Box 66, Meherrin, VA 23954), or to the charity of your choice.
