August 30, 1930 - January 26, 2017
Frances Marie Svoboda Gebert concluded her life experiences on January 26, 2017. She is survived by her sons Terry and wife Helen, Randy and wife Celeste and her grandsons Justin, Cody, Austin, Dustin and Riley.
Frances enjoyed a long career as a legal assistant and continued that career well into her 70s. She was also an active member in the American Business Woman’s Association. She was a devout Catholic and exceptional wife, mother and grandmother. She lived life fully and independently until the end.
Frances and her husband Bob enjoyed the beach, fishing, boating and sailing. They shared many trips to the Caribbean and South Padre Island. Frances’s favorite hobby was oil painting and she has produced many beautiful paintings of wildlife and nature.
She is also survived by a border collie named Ginger who was her latest love in life. She always enjoyed her Koi pond as well as vegetable and flower gardening. Frances especially favored African violets, orchids and lilies.
Cooking and baking was another passion and her heirloom poppy seed kolaches are the family classic. The holiday meals she prepared will be duly missed.
Frances will always be remembered with love and respect by her family, friends and acquaintances. The strength of her character and love remains alive in us all.
Visitation: A vigil and rosary was held on 2017-02-03 at Darst Funeral Home. Rosary will begin at 7:00pm
