Mary Frances was born in Peoria, IL to Floyd Miles and Mearl Mae Wheeler on July 6, 1919. She graduated from Flint Northern High School and Flint Junior College with an Associate in Arts degree. She married Joseph Owen Malloy on November 7, 1942. They were married 56 blessed years until the time of his death. Mrs. Malloy served her family and her churches faithfully. She was a loving and accepting person, encourager, and advocate for the less fortunate. She looked for and found the good in people and situations. These attributes supported her careers as a teacher for exceptional students, after school care provider, and manager of apartment complexes in GA and FL. Mary Frances was an avid reader, graphic artist, lover of travel and looked for adventure everyday of her life. Mary Frances loved her family and invested her life in them. She is survived by three sons: Michael O. (Jo) Malloy-Venice, FL, John P. (Debbie) Malloy-Carrollton, GA, Matthew (Susie) Malloy-Travelers Rest, SC.

Gramma, Grandma, Grandma “M”, Mama Fran, GiGi, and “Miss Mary” loved her many grandchildren, great grandchildren and extended family members. Mary Frances was filled with a spirit of enthusiasm and made friends easily even if it were for a day. At 98 years of age, one of her new best friends said, “Joy and a little “Sparkle” came into Southern Grace the day Mary Frances walked in that door. We were smitten with her wonderful personality.” Her faith in God remained unshakable to her last breath. The family thanks you for the many prayers given during this time. Due to the pandemic crisis, a Celebration of Life will be held at a future date at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 140 West Government Street, Pensacola, FL. In lieu of flowers, a memorial contribution may be made to St. Joseph Medical Clinic, P.O. Box 13566, Pensacola, Fl. 32591.
