Frances Jarmon-Parks was born to the late Robert Sellers, Sr. and Cora Henderson on June 16th, 1932 in Austin, Texas. Frances departed this life on January 3rd, 2022. She was the youngest of two children. Frances married Quincy Jarmon Jr. and to this union, 6 children were born. Later in life, she then married Louis C. Parks who preceded her in death.

Frances committed her life to Christ and was baptized at an early age. She was an active member of Rosewood Baptist Church.

She later moved her membership to Greater Mt. Zion under Pastor N.W. Bacon where she served as an usher. Frances then moved her membership to Mt. Zion under Pastor G.V. Clark where she was a proud member of the Silver Soldiers. After Pastor Clark's retirement, she continued her membership under the residing Pastor Daryl Horton.

Frances was a proud member of The I.B.P.O.E. of the World (ELKS) since 1975. Becoming a Daughter of Texas Temple #1254, founded in 1972, Frances was one of the first charter members of the Temple. On a local level of the fraternity, Frances served on the Nettie Carter-Jackson council. She later went on and received her Texas State honors as a Past State President. In 1996 Frances received the highest honor attainable within the fraternity. She received her Past Grand Daughters Rulers Honor. Frances was very well known for her preparedness to be of service to not only her community, but ALL brothers and daughters of “The Elks.”

Frances enjoyed cooking soul food for her family and friends, crafting, thrift store shopping, and spending time with loved ones. We will remember Frances for her impeccable sense of style, her moves on the dance floor; especially her infamous two step, and her love for decorating during the holiday season. Although kind spirited, she never hesitated to speak her mind. She was loved by everyone who was fortunate enough to know her.

Frances was preceded in death by her only brother Robert Sellers, Jr., her daughter Elizabeth Ann Price, and her son Anthony Jerome Jarmon.

Left to cherish her memories are her children, Quincy Jarmon III of the Philippines, Carolyn Jackson (Morris) of Austin, TX, Debra Jarmon of Austin, TX, and Michael D. Jarmon of Virginia. She also leaves 14 grandchildren, 29 great grandchildren, and 17 great great-grandchildren. Additionally, she leaves behind her adopted son, Larry Hardeman, nieces, nephews, cousins, and a host of friends.
