Frances I. Hornbuckle, 87, a lifelong resident of Platte County, MO, passed away Thursday, October 17, 2019 at the Maryville Living Center, Maryville, MO. Frances was born July 5, 1932 in Parkville, MO to Eugene Withers and Opal Elizabeth (Babcock) Hoy. She was a graduate of the Park Hill High School, and longtime member of the Platte Woods United Methodist Church. Frances married Roy Franklin Hornbuckle on October 9, 1954 in Barry, MO.
