Frances Aline Jeppesen Hamblin died at home surrounded by family on Thursday, December 1, 2022 in Hyde Park, UT due to complications following an aggressive cancer diagnosis.
She was 81. Frances was born on October 31, 1941, in Rigby, ID to her parents, Jack and Elva Jeppesen. She married Joseph Paul Hamblin November 18, 1960. They later divorced. Frances was first and foremost a mother and a homemaker. Her "college" degree was LIFE. She learned to cut and bail hay, fix a broken pin on a bailer, how to drive a 5th wheel trailer, fed and milked the cows and hauled lumber.

She was an active member in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in various callings throughout her life. Frances had a love for family history.
