By  | July 31, 2017 | Filed under: Neal Funeral Home, Obituaries

Mary Frances Davis Chaffin, age 87, of Lawrenceburg, TN entered her eternal home on Sunday, July 30, 2017. She was a native of Lawrence County, TN, a homemaker, and a faithful member of Pulaski Street Church of Christ.  She will be deeply missed by all of her family and friends. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She will be known and remembered for her acts of kindness. You could always count on her to send you a card for your birthday, and visit you if you were sick. She may even have played a practical joke or two on you! She enjoyed visiting the nursing home, cooking, looking through recipe books, and visiting with friends.
