Anna Frances Black


Anna Frances Black, 97, of Richmond, KY and Viera, FL went to be with the Lord on June 2, 2019. She was born in Union City, Madison County, Kentucky on June 24, 1921 to the late Samuel Ogg Griggs and Nannie Minor Griggs. Anna Frances was a loving and cherished wife, mother, sister, aunt, and friend.
She was preceded in death by her husband Ramon E Black, her sister Rozellen Griggs and two brothers Daniel and Samuel Griggs. She is survived by her daughter Barbara Black of Viera, FL, two nieces Diane Griggs Sallee (Sam) of Richmond, Serena Griggs Shelton (Jerry) of Frankfort, four great nieces and numerous great great nieces and nephews.
Anna Frances was a member of the First Baptist Church of Richmond for over 60 years. She taught teenagers in Sunday School, supported the Sanctuary Choir, and especially appreciated time spent with the ladies in her Sunday School Class. Anna Frances managed her own business for many years, Frances' Beauty Shop. When she retired, she enjoyed baking and giving away her Amish breakfast cakes to friends and neighbors. In 2006 she began spending winter months in Viera, FL and lived there year round after 2012 with her sister and daughter. In Florida, she faithfully attended the Church at Viera and dearly loved the ladies she came
to know through the Wednesday morning Christian book studies. Her quiet ability to read people, and courage to reach out to them, allowed her to be supportive in ways only the Lord and those who were helped know.
Funeral service will be conducted at 11:30am Friday June 7 at Oldham, Roberts, and Powell Richmond, KY with the Rev Robert Vickers officiating. Burial will follow in the Richmond Cemetery. Visitation will be from 10:00-11:30am June 7 at the funeral home.
