We are so sorry to learn about the death of Ms. Frances McEntire Bartley. From the nice tribute, I can tell she was a caring individual. I can see by the comments below, your loss will be felt by many. It is sad when age and death take our loved ones, I hope what I share will be of comfort for your family at this time. Imagine a time when there will be no more times such as these, or like the family of Lazarus, the joy experienced by them when there dear brother was resurrected. The Bible promises that all families will experience such a time, John 5:28,29, when those in the memorial will be raised up, and not only that but at that time any problems we have God will wipe all those moments that cause us tears away, Revelation 21:3, 4. We offer our sincerest condolences at this time.

Sending my love and sympathy to the Bartley family. I've known Ms Frances all my life. I have many fond memories of this sweet lady. She would fix my mom, sister and my hair way back when. My dad, "Rabbit" Shealy and Mr Frank would go fishing at our camp on the lake. Many happy times. May God bless your family during the
the days ahead.

What a great lady! Frances was so wonderful to our family when my father served Epting as her minister. We loved all of this family. Frances was very active in the church and elsewhere. She will surely be missed. God's love, grace, and peace be with you, her family, at the sad time and in the days to come. She has surely entered the gates of heaven. Harriett Rucker

"Miss" Frances was such a sweet, kind, and gentle lady. I feel so fortunate to have had her as an influence in my life growing up and in Epting Church. May your sweet memories of her help each of you during the times and days ahead. Thinking of you all.
