Obituary of Frances Elizabeth Hughes Tripp

Please share a memory of Frances to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Frances Elizabeth Hughes Tripp passed away on February 4, 2022 surrounded by loved ones at her home. Born in Simpsonville, SC, she was the daughter of the late Alender and Elizabeth Bramlett Hughes. Frances was predeceased by her beloved husband of 59 years, Iber V. Tripp, who passed away in August. She is survived by her daughters Beth Tripp Moss (son-in-law Glenn Moss) and Blair Tripp, and three grandchildren – Eric, Miriam, and Ivy Moss. She served as a majorette at the then new Hillcrest High School. And it was in high school that her friends set her up on a blind date with a fellow named Iber. After earning her Bachelor’s degree at Lander College, Frances taught second grade at Simpsonville Elementary School. Even decades after she taught, she fondly remembered her students as they did her. When Iber went into business for himself, Frances served as secretary, bookkeeper, and assistant for Iber Tripp Grading. She was active in the Jayceettes for a number of years as well as in the Antique Automobile Club of America. While her girls were in school, she served as room mother and chaperoned countless field trips. She often drove her station wagon as a school taxi. She was devoted to those she loved. And there was never a stray she didn’t take in. When you were around Frances she made certain your cup was never empty. To know Frances was to know her generosity, her warmth, her kindness...and her brownies. Visitation will be held at Fletcher Funeral Home in Fountain Inn, SC, Friday, February 18, from 5:00pm-7:00pm. Funeral Services will be held at Simpsonville First Baptist Church Chapel, Saturday, February 19 at 2:00 pm.
