Frances Faun (Mikesell) Bounds, age 82, of Houston Texas, passed away on Thursday November 18, 2021 in Houston, Texas.
Born February 21, 1939 in Miami county, Indiana, she was the daughter of the late Oliver and Louise (Zimmerman) Mikesell. On January 4, 1964 in Kingsville, TX she married Anton “Tony” Bounds who preceded her in death.
Franny pursued her love of science and became a medical lab technologist. She spent her life working in the lab department of many local hospitals in Houston. Her lifelong hobby was sewing, and she enjoyed the company of her many cats she had throughout her life. Even though Alzheimer's robbed her of much joy in her golden years leaving just a mere shadow of who she had been, she continued to sew as long as she was able and enjoyed the companionship of family. She will be greatly missed by the many loved ones she is leaving behind but can now rest easy with her Lord and Savior.
Frances is survived by daughter Sheri Smith & husband Bryan, Cypress, Texas; son Bart Bounds & wife Penny, Houston, TX; sister Esther Bledsoe, Kokomo, IN; brothers Larry Mikesell & wife Bonnie, Rochester, IN; Clifford Mikesell & wife Nelda, Rochester, IN; sister-in-law, Carolyn Mikesell, Marion, IN; sister-in-law, Lu Cassel Mikesell, North Manchester, IN; many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Anton "Tony" Bounds; brothers David Mikesell and Marvin Mikesell; sister Lou Anna Britt; and grandsons Joey Reed and Garrett Hardy.
