Frances Rose Frymire Meise

November 2, 1937 - July 12, 2012

Frances Rose Frymire Meise, daughter of Willie Alexander 'Bill' Frymire and Nancy Rufina Adams, married to Carl William Meise, Jr. and buried in Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery, Odessa, Ector County, Texas.

ODESSA Frances Rose Meise died Thursday, July 12, 2012 following a sudden and brief illness.

Rose was born November 2, 1937 in Lawn, Texas to Bill and Rufina Frymire. She was the youngest of five children and the only girl.

She married Carl W. Meise, Jr. on August 4, 1957. They soon moved to Odessa, Texas where they settled and raised 3 boys: Kerry, Darrell and Adam. She was a devoted mother, never missing a ball game, half-time performance, band concert, or anything else her boys were involved in. She had an open-door policy around the house and many of her boy's friends also lovingly called her "mom".

Rose had a 40+ year career in banking. After retiring, she devoted much of her time to her church where she held numerous offices and served on countless committees. She also served on many Presbytery committees through Women of the Church. She was loved and respected by everyone who ever served or worked with her. She had a way of always getting things done, usually to perfection.

Rose loved to have her family around and often attended track meets, soccer, T-ball, softball, volleyball and basketball games of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved to take care of her family and hosted almost every family gathering, cooking all their favorite meals and treats. She was a care-giver to the end, always willing to help someone in need.

Rose was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers: G.W. "Dub" Frymire and Carl Lee Frymire.

Rose is survived by her husband Carl, to whom she was married for almost 55 years, three sons and their wives: Kerry and Donna, Darrell and Terri, Adam and Joanna (all of Odessa); six grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, two brothers and their wives: Pete and Jo Frymire of Sweetwater, TX and Harold and Lettie Frymire of Abilene, TX; along with a large extended family.

Rose will be missed by all and forgotten by none. She will always be loved and cherished. Her family takes great comfort in knowing that she is one of God's newest angels and can now help everyone. Heaven will have a real treat if they ask her to make a batch of banana pudding.

The family will host visitation at Sunset Funeral Home on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Funeral services will be 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 18, 2012 at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Odessa. Interment will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Sunset Funeral Home.
